The Smooth Foxingese is a small hybrid that is a combination of the Pekingese and the Smooth Fox Terrier. This breed can be an excellent pet for your family with the right training. However, they are not great with young children due to their size and can be a bit jealous with other pets as well. The Smooth Foxingese can be hard to train and needs plenty of patience and consistency to learn who is boss. They are brave and they make great watch dogs but will go after any threat no matter their size so you have to be careful she does not get hurt.
To determine the history of the Smooth Foxingese, it is important to look at the backgrounds of the Pekingese and the Smooth Fox Terrier. The Pekingese breed has been a royal part of the Chinese history since the 8th century and were named after the city of Peking, where they were developed during the Tang Dynasty. Because of their furry head of hair, they were nicknamed the Lion Dog and the legend claims that the breed is a mix of a marmoset and a lion that fell in love many centuries ago. In fact, the Chinese people believed that the Pekingese had magic powers similar to the Chinese guard lions that protected the palaces and temples, which is why the Pekingese were protected and had their own servants. Those who were not royalty were not allowed to own a Pekingese until the late 1800s when soldiers found several of them during the Chinese takeover. One of these dogs was given to Queen Victoria and she carried him around in the large sleeves of her royal robe, earning them the nickname of sleeve Pekingese. In 1906, the breed was acknowledged by the American Kennel Club where they are now the 93rd most well-liked breed in America. The Smooth Fox Terrier is an English breed that dates back to the 18th century and was bred from Beagles, Bull Terriers, Black and Tan Terriers, and Greyhounds. They were one of the first breeds to enter a dog show but were originally bred to hunt foxes by chasing them out of their holes for the hunters. Even though the Smooth Fox Terrier and Wire Fox Terrier were thought to be one breed at one time, they had different backgrounds. However, even the AKC had these two breeds listed as the same until 1985, when they were finally separated.
