Mini Fox Terriers are an Australian breed and were developed for farm work. They are very similar to Jack Russells in nature.

We were similarly confused when we got our Mini Fox Terrier pup(native breed in Australia). Checked this website:

if you live in australia they are mini foxy's , its what theyv always been called - to the person who thinks otherwise .

iv never owned a jackrussel , but iv owned 2 mini foxies before and the temprement will just depend on how you  raise it and what the parents are like . both breeds are little sweet hearted, cute , playful  , smart , energetic and very loyal dogs.

I have 10+ yrs rescuing Cairn terriers. Ask me about rescue work and re-homing rescued terriers. I am also proudly owned by a Jack Russell Terrier rescue. I am also keenly aware that terriers are significantly different from other kinds of dogs, and often not the best choice for some owners. HOWEVER I AM NOT A VET! PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME IN-DEPTH MEDICAL QUESTIONS THAT SHOULD BE DIRECTED ONLY TOWARDS MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS. I WILL BE HAPPY TO ASSIST WITH BASIC MEDICAL QUESTIONS/NEEDS THAT I CAN OFFER MY PERSONAL OPINION ON. If you ask me questions about breeding, please expect me to be direct about my opinion on this topic.
