Our Foxton is 8 years old We get so many compliments on her. She is the perfect size. She is wonderful with children and was easy to train. She loves to hunt. To some this might be a benefit, to us it's a little freaky to see our little dog put down a rabbit, squirrel and ground hog with ease. She only barks to alert us of something and then stops. Once in a while she gets a little stubborn but she wants to please so much that it's easy to redirect her behavior. Great breed.
