|We always have a Canadian Champion in our breeding
stock. This makes for good conformation, temperament, and soundness
in puppies. We try to breed the best to the best and have had some
very successful years. Where possible we breed within our own lines,
but when some new bloodlines need to be introduced we spend a great
deal of time, care and thought into who will be used. We have the
future generations to consider and all the time we are working towards
producing quality and not quantity.
See some of our champions:

Some stories of our Wires past and present.
Ch. Foxburrow’s Firecracker. Gained his championship in a
few weekends. He was a laid back, get on with everyone Wire. He
was the sire of most of our early champions and his bloodline runs
through all our females for five generations or more. He was dearly
loved by us and he became a loving house pet here at Foxburrow “Nicky”
died at the ripe old age of 15 ½
Ch. Foxburrow’s Busy Bee Her championship was not as easy
to get as she would never be still long enough to get groomed! She
lived up to her name and played hard and was a typical hunter of
wildlife. Never a bird squirrel or rabbit was safe anywhere near
her. She was placed in a pet home after she had finished producing
puppies and lived in Hanover.
Ch. Foxburrow’s Busy Body. “Emma” Always ready
for a game of ball and was very smart and quick to learn. She was
bred once and produced Ch. Foxburrow’s Fancy That in a litter
of six puppies. She lived in London. Ont.and used to commute by
plane to work with her owner to Toronto. She is still living in
London aged 14 ½
Ch. Foxburrow’s Fancy That. “Jenny” a photographic
ham. She would spend her time posing for photographs with Robin
taking them. She was the one with the dirty face in the Foxburrow
ads in Dogs in Canada for many years. She is now our house pet and
“in charge”! Sad to say that in October 2004 Jenny passed
away at the age of 16.
Ch. Joyjac’s Little Miss Demeanour. She lived up to her name
well. She was puppy obedience trained and had a mind of her own.
She was a digger and a hunter. She could out race any dog here,
or at the terrier trials. She was all ready to go to a show. We
let her out for a few minutes in that time she managed to go down
a ground hog hole and get filthy dirty. She came back happy, though
we didn’t get to the show. “Rosie” was bred by
Mrs.J. Duncan. Saskatchewan.
Ch. Foxburrow’s Fantasia. “Sophie” was the cuddliest
dog ever and would follow me to the ends of the earth. She produced
one Champion and is now living with a family in Oshawa.
Ch. Joyjac’s Northern Advocate. “Simon” Another
cuddler. He is now living in Toronto after siring four Champions.
Ch.Foxburrow’s Fancy Pants. Sophies daughter. Maggie is full

Canadian Ch. Foxburrow’s Finesse.

of Simon. Easy going,and friends with all. He won Best of Winners
