Smooth Fox Terriers started with one little black and
white Fox Terrier puppy. She was intended to be a companion
to the Doberman I currently was showing and a small sized
showdog. This was Ch. McGypsi's Dancing Vixen. This little
puppy stole our hearts and that really was the start of
were very lucky with our foundation stock. I was given
a Ch. Boreham Bonanza son, Am Can Ch Golden Oak Foxee
Froy and a lovely compatible little split faced bitch,
Ch. Lerian's Half Moon, bred down from the Newmaidly Kennels
in England via Angie Tillman's long time Rebel Hill Kennels.
These were truly great gifts and we believe McGypsi has
kept our word and bred with thought
were very lucky with this foundation, neither "Howie"
nor "Moon" were apparently carriers of any genetc
disease we have been able to find and McGypsi has benefited
from that over the years. All the testing we have done,
hips, hearts, knees, and eyes, have never produced one
positive result. All of our current dogs are tightly inbred
continue to breed for soundness, correct size and a happy,
livable temperament. We our known for the sweetness of
our boys and the loyalty of our girls.
the mating of Howie and Moon came Ch. McGypsi's Ballet
Dancer, D.D. a top 10 producing bitch of all time in the
breed. Bali produced beautiful expression, temperament,
correct structure and showmanship.
blessed us with a "once in a lifetime" dog,
"Dane", BISS AM Can. Int'l Champion McGypsi's
Quietus Maker, ROM, a perfect moving dog, standing at
15 1/4 inches, who's genes strongly dominate our current
Bali produced Multi BISS Ch. Farhills Laser Light who
was a multiple Specialty winner and was the foundation
of the Warfox Kennels, of Dallas Texas, who have produced
multiple Bests In Show winners. A full brother to Laser
Light, was Ch. McGypsi's Officer in Command, "C.O.",
who gave us our first wins in the group with multiple
group placements. His littermate,"Sarge", Ch.
McGypsi's Officer of the Court became the foundation of
the comeback new Spucehill Kennel of the late Judith and
Edward Wolf. Currently, Smooth Ridge Smooth Fox Terriers
have built their line from McGypsi as has the Wicklow
currently have McGypsi bred dogs showing and winning in
Canada and hope to see more there soon.
have been told by any number of breeders that they have
bred a little of Bali and/or Dane into their lines to
improve their size and soundness.
we have some mature and some upcoming young bitches to
carry on with and one little boy, tightly inbred on Dane,
BISS Ch. Greylin TNT Buster Brown. Buster has been bred
to Ch. McGypsi's Nearly Nude and we hope to have beautiful
babies on the ground in December 09.
