The coyotes have become a dangerous nuisance here. They've proliferated at an alarming rate and have shoved other predators out of the environment. Coyotes adapt to our ways very well, and will learn to snatch pet animals from fenced enclosures. They will work together and even a dog like a Rottie isn't safe.

They are losing their fear of us, and in some cases are mating with dogs, further deteriorating the natural wariness, making them doubly dangerous. They are also getting larger . . .

They are supposed to be about 40 pound animals. I've seen some that were substantially bigger than Bimmer. I saw one that had been hit by a car that was nearly as big as my Bear was, and he weighed between 100 and 110 pounds. I doubt it weighed that much, as it wouldn't have had the heavy bone structure he had, but it was much too big for a coyote.

They are terrified of the Filas though, and have a healthy respect for Bimmer. The only reason I can think of that they steer clear of him has to do with that bit of wolf blood, as wolves are their natural enemies.

Default some answers for Rose

how big do they get?
12 inches, although there's a movement afoot to raise the height ceiling to 14 inches

what were they bred for?
Hunting and eliminating vermin

are they natoriously (sp?) dificult to train?
no, a well bred one is bright

how much activity do they need?
moderate amount

how much mental stimulation do they need?
lots, if you don't want everything in your house chewed up, especially by puppies!

do they need other companions?
those that are descended from good Miniature Fox Terrier lines need companionship and love being with their people

do they need to be inside dogs?
In a cold climate, certainly, or very good shelter. Back in the day, many were farm dogs and left outside but I'm sure the mortality rate was high.

do they tend to be overly agressive or nippy?
If you suspect any dog is overly aggressive or nippy DON'T BUY IT!

even if they need lots of excercise, training, care, stimulation, time and effort, it wont change my mind if i decide on one, all my dogs willl have a HUGE amount of excercise, very little time left alone and very good training...

GOOD FOR YOU!!
