THE POPULAR FOX TERRIER By the Rev. A.J. Skinner. A VINTAGE DOG BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT. This scarce early work on the Fox Terrier was first published in 1926 and is now extremely hard to find in its first edition. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have republished it, using the original text and illustrations as part of their CLASSIC BREED BOOKS series. The author was founder of the Borlase Fox Terrier Kennels, and contributed much of interest to Fox Terrier literature. His terriers won many championship shows and were much sought after as breeding stock. The book consists of one hundred and forty pages containing eleven detailed chapters: The Fox Terrier as a Hobby and as a Pal. - Standard and Requirements. - Principles of Breeding. Mendels Law, Pedigrees, Out Crossing etc. - Pertinacity in Breeding. - Preparing for Show. - The Working Fox Terrier. - As an Earth Dog. - Feeding. - Ailments. - Management. - Present Day Champions and their Pedigrees. - Trimming a Wire Fox Terrier. - Breeders, Exhibitors and Judges. Etc. The contents are well illustrated with line drawings and vintage black and white photographs of champions and their pedigrees. The publishers have also retained several pages of original advertisements for Fox Terrier kennels etc. This is a fascinating read for any Fox Terrier enthusiast or historian of the breed, but also contains much information that is still practical and useful today. Many of the earliest dog breed books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
