Fox Terrier Names

Updated: October 06, 2023
      There are two common breeds of Fox Terrier. The Wire Fox Terrier has a longer double white coat. Owners of the wire variety sometimes choose names like Shaggy, Jake, and Sarah. The Smooth Fox Terrier has a short white coat. Favorites among smooth owners include Bella, Nike, and Katy. The white found in the breed's coat often leads owners to choose a color related name. Oreo, Angel, and Sugar are a few options that fit this naming strategy. A dog named Pitch, depicted in a painting by Sawrey Gilpin, is one of the earliest depictions of a white terrier.

The Fox Terrier's Curveball: Tale of a Dog Named Rusty

In the small town of Pinefield, baseball was the heart and soul of the community. The Pinefield Pioneers, the local Little League team, was a source of pride and unity for the townspeople. Among the Pioneers' most promising players was young Jake Thompson, a talented pitcher with a fierce competitive spirit.

Jake's greatest companion was his loyal Fox Terrier, Rusty. Rusty was a lively and intelligent dog, with boundless energy that matched Jake's own. Together, the duo would spend countless hours on the baseball field, with Jake practicing his pitches and Rusty eagerly chasing after the balls.

One day, as Jake and Rusty were playing catch on the field, Rusty took off after a ball that Jake had thrown a little too high. As the ball soared through the air, Rusty leaped with all his might, twisting his agile body mid-air to catch it. Jake watched in amazement as Rusty landed gracefully on the ground, the ball held firmly between his teeth.

Inspired by Rusty's incredible maneuver, Jake decided to incorporate a similar twist into his pitching technique. He spent days studying Rusty's movements, imitating the way the Fox Terrier twisted his body to catch the ball. Eventually, Jake was able to replicate Rusty's move in his pitch, creating a unique curveball that confounded even the most skilled batters.

Jake's new pitch, dubbed "The Rusty Curveball," quickly became the talk of the town. Under the watchful eye of his trusty companion, Jake honed his newfound skill, his pitches becoming faster and more unpredictable with each practice session.

As the Little League season progressed, Jake and the Pinefield Pioneers found themselves on an unprecedented winning streak. The Rusty Curveball proved to be a formidable weapon against their opponents, earning Jake a reputation as a formidable pitcher.

The Pioneers' success caught the attention of a renowned college baseball scout, who arrived in Pinefield to observe Jake's pitching prowess. As Jake took the mound, Rusty looked on with pride from the sidelines, his wagging tail a testament to his unwavering support.

With each pitch, the scout's interest grew, as Jake demonstrated the mastery of the Rusty Curveball. Impressed by the young pitcher's skill and determination, the scout offered Jake a scholarship to play baseball for a prestigious college team, an opportunity that would change the course of Jake's life.

As Jake prepared to embark on his new journey, he knew that Rusty would be by his side, their unbreakable bond a testament to the power of friendship and inspiration. Together, they would continue to push the limits of their talents, forever grateful for the Fox Terrier's leap that had inspired a legendary curveball.
