About the Mini Foxie Club of Australia Inc. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In July 1986, a group of dog owners met at Warwick Farm, NSW, and established a national club for the little dogs known in Australia as Miniature Fox Terriers, Mini Foxies, Mini Fox Terriers and little foxies. A breed standard was written for the Miniature Fox Terrier. A breed standard is a guide that is used to breed sound dogs of good type - dogs that can perform their natural functions safely and effectively, and breed true to type. A breed standard must be a consistent recipe - if you change the breed standard, or dont breed to the breed standard, changes occur in the dogs. MFCA breeders continue to use the same breed standard. No changes. Just good breeding.

MFCA's classification, grading and registration system also works well and over 20 years has resulted in standardisation of type and improved soundness. It is a strict but fair system, as is the MFCA Code of Ethics which has a strong animal welfare basis. We believe that the show ring cannot be a totally effective adjudicator of a breed because not all breeding dogs are exhibited. Soundness must be achieved and maintained at breeder/club level and the MFCA system monitors and achieves that aim.

Don't take risks when buying a puppy - you will have it for the next 15 years or so. Buy your Mini Foxie puppy from MFCA registered breeders who can show you the parents and the MFCA papers. When reading advertisements always look for "MFCA registered" - if a breeder is not registered with MFCA then the pups they are selling may not be purebred Mini Foxies.

Come along to MFCA shows and meet some of the registered breeders. Mini Foxie dog shows are fun, well attended, and winners are well rewarded. Judges often comment on the consistently good quality of the exhibited dogs. The popularity of Mini Foxies is legendary and they remain a treasured part of Australian history and culture. People overseas are now also enjoying good quality Australian bred Mini Foxies.

Dont take risks when buying a puppy, you will have it for the next 15 years or so. When looking at advertisements always look for "MFCA registered" - if a breeder is not registered with MFCA then the pups they are selling may not be purebred Mini Foxies.
