History Of TFT's

I first saw Toy Fox Terriers at a dog show in Monroe. I had to have one! I had been looking for the ideal dog. One that had a good personality and full of fun. The Toy Fox Terrier is all that and more. A dog for all reasons! One led to two and now I have six. Now and then I have had litters of puppies. In attempts to get that perfect show puppy.

Winning ribbons is fun. I was told I was grinning to big?

The puppies did not quite know what to think about this big bone!

Shawn did he drug it over to his bed and began to devour it!

Toy Fox Terriers
The Toy Fox Terrier somewhat resembles the Smooth Fox Terrier from which it was developed, but the diminutive pooch has definite differences in appearance. The ears on the Toy Fox Terrier are upright and appear too large for the dog's head, its skull is more rounded with a longer muzzle than that of its larger cousin,its body is proportionally longer, and its tail is shorter.

The Toy Fox Terrier had its beginnings in the runts of litters born to Smooth Fox Terriers on American farms. Favorites as house dogs to keep vermin out of the pantry and entertain the family with their antics, these scrappy little dogs became the foundation of the breed. Toy Fox Terriers inherited the smooth coat that needs little care and the devil-may-care attitude of the larger Smooth Fox Terrier. Elderly people often enjoy the lively little dogs, for they can be counted on to exercise themselves in the apartment, are good watchdogs, and love to do tricks.

The Toy Fox Terrier weighs three-and-one-half to seven pounds. It is mostly white with black, tan, or black and tan markings. Care should be taken to select a responsible breeder, for like all small breeds, the Toy Fox Terrier can be exploited by puppy mills and backyard breeders. Puppies purchased from pet stores can have the same temperament and health problems as any other breed purchased from this source.
