Smooth Chisoxy Breed History

The Smooth Chisoxy is a rare hybrid. He is the perfect mix of his parent’s, the Smooth Terrier and the Chihuahua. The Smooth Fox Terrier can trace his roots back to 17th century Britain. His ancestry is thought to be linked to the Beagle, Greyhound, Black and Tan Terrier, and the Bull Terrier. These canines all offered skills and traits to make the Smooth Fox Terrier a champion hunter. This dog was used by farmers to hunt small vermin and pests such foxes and rats. He would bravely venture into the den of the prey and drive the creature out. Once outside, the Smooth Fox Terrier would promptly kill it. The American Kennel Club recognized the Smooth Fox Terrier in 1885 in the Terrier Group. The Chihuahua is a big dog in a tiny package. He originated in Mexico and is more than likely a direct descendant of the Techichi, a dog that was raised by the Toltec civilization. It is believed that the dog has resided in Central America for over 2,000 years. They were often raised as food and to serve as canine hot water bottles. The small dog would lay next to a sick person to transfer his soothing body heat to the person. They were also thought to have spiritual use in helping the deceased pass to the other side in a peaceful manner. The American Kennel Club registered the dog in 1904 in the Toy Group. Today the Chihuahua is a favored pet and companion.

Smooth Chisoxy Breed Maintenance

His smooth coat makes fur care a breeze. A simple brushing will remove loose hairs and keep his coat shining and looking neat. You may also wipe him down with a warm damp washcloth to remove any dirt buildup on his fur. Once a week, you can wipe his ears out to clear them of any debris that might accumulate. Most owners trim their dog’s nails once a month if their regular activity does not sufficiently wear the nail material down. Brushing his teeth every few days will help reduce plaque buildup and prevent gum disease later in life.
