Over the past 150 years, Fox Terriers, both Smooth and Wire, have been among the most popular and versatile breeds; whether on the hunt with the hounds (as their name implies), in the field chasing rabbits, in the barn ratting or, these days, as a delightfully upbeat companion dog.

Of all the breeds represented in the collection of the AKC Museum of the Dog, the Fox Terrier ranks among the highest with just under 100 depictions in paintings, prints, sculpture, and porcelain. Not just in sheer number, but also in the quality and importance of the dogs portrayed that makes this collection so special. For that reason, the Museum felt it appropriate to mount its first exhibition devoted to a breed since we re-opened in New York.

The exhibition Outfoxed: Fox Terriers and Friends explores the development of the breed, the variety of their jobs, and chronicles the many champions in the collection.
