Looking for a puppy to purchase? Scroll down and you will find a list of MFCA registered breeders who have registered Miniature Fox Terrier pups (with MFCA papers) for sale. Buying from an MFCA registered breeder means that your puppy has been bred from purebred parents which have been checked by veterinarians, before they were classified and approved for breeding by the MFCA registry. You will receive your puppy's registration certificate after purchase, sent to you from the MFCA registry. Why settle for less?.. Older pups and mature dogs are also sometimes available. For information, please contact the breeders listed below.

It has come to the club's attention that some persons are fraudulently claiming to be members of the Mini Foxie Club of Australia (MFCA) when in fact they are not.
If you are buying a puppy and wish to confirm that the seller is a member of the MFCA, please click on "Contact Us" and send an email to the club. Thank you.
May 2013: Parvovirus is currently a major problem in some rural areas of NSW. A number of dogs have died and some vets in affected areas are vaccinating at discounted prices. Please fully vaccinate your dogs against parvovirus.
Governments and councils now require that dog breeders be registered with a canine registry.
If you are breeding Miniature Foxies at home but are not registered as a breeder and you would like information on becoming an MFCA registered breeder, and if you would like information on how to register the pups that you breed, please send an email through the "Contact Us" section of this website.
MFCA Membership is not expensive and MFCA registration fees are very affordable. As an MFCA registered breeder you are required to register the litters of pups that you breed so that your pups' pedigrees (family history) will be officially registered.
As an MFCA breeder you will be part of an excellent team which is working to ensure a good future for these beautiful purebred dogs. The future of purebred dogs is being put at risk by the high rates of de-sexing in Australia; around 90% of all pups are being de-sexed. Breeding rates of many dog breeds have dropped alarmingly in recent years.
While it is responsible to de-sex pets which are not intended to be used for breeding, the health of future gene pools must also be considered and sufficient numbers of good quality dogs and bitches must be kept entire for breeding purposes.
Be a proud and responsible breeder of good quality dogs - be an MFCA Registered Breeder.
The Mini Foxie Club of Australia Inc. was established in July 1986 and was originally known as the Miniature Fox Terrier Club of Australia (see "About the MFCA"). Our club:
- was the first club formed in Australia for the popular little dogs that many Australians had long known as "Miniature Foxies", "Miniature Fox Terriers", "Little Foxies" and "Mini Foxies".
- was the first Australian club to formulate a BREED STANDARD for these dogs ....and we still proudly breed dogs of this type to the breed standard.
- is the independent dog club that you should join if you want to own or breed purebred MINIATURE FOX TERRIERS.
The club is not affiliated with any other organisation and we take pride in our longstanding studbook and the safeguards we have in place to minimise the incidence of inherited faults that can occur in small breeds of dogs.
MFCA pups are litter registered soon after birth and then are health checked again as adults - before breeding.
Only approved dogs with an acceptable veterinary report will be registered for breeding by the MFCA Registry. This is an additional safeguard not found in all dog breeds.
When you see pups advertised as "MFCA Registered" you can know that those pups have been selectively bred from approved dogs and have an MFCA pedigree. We care about the quality of our breed.
