My Fourche Terrier

I adopted a Fourche Terrier Male when he was a 10 week old puppy. He has been very healthy, but has grown much bigger than I imagined. I have read that most Fourche Terriers are small dogs. Our's weighs 26 pounds, and he is not fat. He is 11 inches at the whithers, and 15 inches from collar to base of tail. He is longer and a bit taller than his Westie Mother.

His shiney fur is various shades of brown, rust and black, mingled together. He has a white patch on his chest and a milk chin. The fur is thick, but if brushed weekly, has never had problems matting. It does not shed. He prefers to be insde during hot weather. Our groomer gives him a Westie cut about every eight weeks, which keeps him looking quite handsome. If left unclipped, he looks like a small sheepdog. He became a bit itchy last autumn. It seems to have been a seasonal thing. He has displayed no health problems of any kind and has a hearty appetite.

He enjoys a brisk walk, but also is content playing in his fenced play yard. He enjoys playing fetch and is good with children and adults.

He is smart, affectionate, playful loyal and sometimes, very stubborn. I know of one person who had a Fourche Terrier that lived to be 15 years and 9 months old. The Fourche Terrier makes a delightful companion.

I bought a little Fourche Terrier

I bought a little Fourche Terrier in March of 2007 when he was 11 weeks old. He's a black brindle with white toes on all four feet, a white chest, and a white beard. The only troubles I've had with him medically are skin troubles, but the breeder said none of the other puppies in the litter have had similar problems. My vet diagnosed him with puritis and it's something that does need constant care, but he is more than worth it. He is extremely intelligent and very protective over his people. He can be a bit stubborn at times, but I really love him with all my heart. Since having him his coloration has lightened a lot. I've heard of yorkies turning blue/silver with age, and I'm wondering if that's why his fur is lightening even through winter. I would highly recommend owning a fourche terrier. I had a difficult time finding anyone who breeds them, but finally did and was very happy with the service provided by the breeder (doublejkennel). They are hardy, fun little dogs that are perfect for people with allergies to dogs (myself included).
