Overview
A descendant of the Smooth Fox Terrier, the Toy Fox Terrier was developed in the United States during the 1930s. They were most commonly used as ratters and circus performers. Commonly referred to as the Amertoy, this breed was admitted into the American Kennel Club Toy Group division in 2003.
Character
The Toy Fox Terrier is small, agile, sturdy, and energetic. This breed is considered to be more responsive and more trainable than most terriers. They are extremely alert, hardy, and playful. They have a fearless nature and are not easily intimidated.
Temperament
A sensitive, loving, loyal, and affectionate breed, the Toy Fox Terrier is a spirited companion. Due to their stature they do best in a home with older considerate children. They thrive on attention and stimulation. This breed will get along with dogs, cats, and other household pets they have been raised with. They may have a tendency to display aggression to same gender dogs and will fight if provoked or threatened. The Toy Fox Terrier is exceedingly animated, comical, fun loving, and entertaining.
Care
Toy Fox Terriers are relatively maintenance free. An occasional brushing will suffice. Bathe or dry shampoo when necessary. It is important to provide regular dental hygiene. The nails must be kept short. The Toy Fox Terrier is prone to such health issues as allergies to beet, corn, and wheat, demodectic mange, patella luxation, Legg-Calve-Perthe disease, Von Willebrands disease, and congenital hypothyroidism with goiter. They do not do well in cold climates.
Coat
The coat of the Toy Fox Terrier is smooth to the touch, shiny, and fine in texture. It is of uniform length on the body and slightly longer in the ruff. The color of the coat is tri-color black, tan, and white. Other colors include white, chocolate, and tan, white and tan, or black and white. This breed is a light shedder.
Training
A highly intelligent breed, the Toy Fox Terrier is quick to learn. Early socialization and obedience are recommended. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training should be done with fairness, praise, firmness, reward, and consistency. This breed is exceptionally talented as a hearing dog for the deaf and as an assistant to the handicapped.
Activity
The Toy Fox Terrier benefits from regular daily exercise. They enjoy securely leashed walks, family play sessions, and a safely fenced area to run and romp in freely. They will do well in an apartment or condominium dwelling provided they are given sufficient exercise, attention, and stimulation.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Toy Fox Terrier puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

What should watch for with a toy fox terrier with an underbite? Is this a health problem for the breed?

1 Comment

Anonymous

Yes, this is a very big problem for the breed. The Toy Fox Terrier is not supposed to have an under-bite and it can pose a lot of health problems for the dog. First and foremost, it is time for a vet trip. Get your puppy into the vet a.s.a.p so that he/she can determine how severe the under-bite is and if surgery needs to be done.

Sometime the fontanelle will close slowly....3 to 6 months, but I would consult a vet to be sure that this is not a hydrocephalus.

OUR TOY FOX TERRIER IS A PICKEY EATER SO WHAT DO THEY LIKE TO EAT?

3 Comments

Anonymous

If your dog is a picky eater, it is time for a vet visit. Being picky could stem from your dog having allergies to it's food and having a stomach ache after it eats. A grain-free, high quality dog food will give your dog the best nutrition and stop picky eater's from being picky.

I have always fed my dogs partial boiled chicken gizzards and hearts. I have never had an issue and they have never turned their nose up at dinner time. And pound for pound found it less expensive (for small breeds) then commercial canned foods without the worry. I leave dry down for snacking

I have had 4 toy fox terriers. What I've found consistent with all of them to encourage eating their own food if nothing else is wrong with them is adding grated cheese to their meals. It helps stimulate them to eat. Also occasional scrambled egg.

Your TFT is having an allergic reaction. It more than likely is a season thing. You need to get her some benadryl pills. You can pick a pack up at walmart and they are pink. give her 2 a day until you start see a difference then take her down to one a day

I have a TFT who was just over 10 yrs. old, and he recently died of kidney failure. What levels in the blood were up? Mine went downhill fast. We loved our little Spikey so much, it was really hard.

Depends on which levels are high. I had a female, who we believe inadvertently got a small Taste of something with artificial sweetener. She was in emergency care over a weekend. Liver values were extremely high but eventually came down. She was put on IV fluids, I don't recall which meds. Most people know that chocolate is dangerous for dogs, but artificial sweeteners are even worse.

That sounds about the right age as long as kids understand that although they can be quite lovable, Toy Fox Terriers are not froufrou dogs. Some of them, especially male are not "face dogs" I.e. Don't put your face up next to theirs until you are sure of their temperament. They don't tend to do well with very young kids especially toddlers. They provide lots of entertainment and if you find one that loves toys/balls then 11y/o kids are perfect to play with. Good luck!

The breed standard is up to 7 lbs, but that does not mean that they can't get slightly bigger. He just wouldn't be in the breed standards to be able to show them. My UKC papered TFT is almost 18 years old, and he was about 8 lbs in his prime.

They were giving him away as he was to not a good fit for their family. (young child). I have brought him home and he seems to be doing well so far. I am curious to know is it normal for them to have long curled tail? He has the most beautiful brown colors and a brown nose & almost green eyes. He is going to be a special guy in our house. I don't like clipping ears and tails tho..do I have to do this? His ears are floppy & his tail is long and curled. Is he truly a toy fox terrier or possible mixed since he has floppy years and curled tail?

Your Toy Fox Terrier puppy's ears will begin to stand erect as he gets older, certainly by the time he is a year old. If you don't plan to show your dog, there's no reason to dock its tail. Just love him and he'll keep you laughing, these guys are such clowns!

Toy Fox Terriers have their tail clipped. I think at the 2nd or 3rd notch. This is usually done when they are a few days old. The ears will stand up when the puppy is older.

I just adopted a 14yo TFT his owner went into Hospice and the family boarded dog with Vet for 5 mos. He was owned since a puppy by one elderly man. He is very weak from not moving much and his back legs shake or he limps upon arising. He also seems very tender in chest area when I pick him up to the sofa or bed. Vet said it is weakness but, his ribs seem to crackle and move-am I imagining this? I want to love this dog for whatever time he has but, I worry he needs arthritis meds or PT. I just want reassurance that (if given a complete clean bill of health from vet and btw this beauty has all his teeth!!) if TFT live beyond 14 yrs. He seems so healthy and vibrant (except for cataracts) I cannot imagine him dying in a few months. My 5lb Chihuahua dies at 22yo last year so I know theere are always exceptions to the standard. Love is a great healer and restore!

Did the vet check your TFT's patellas? I wouldn't worry so much about him crying some when you pick him up but have his patellas checked. You can give him glucosamin (sp?) it will help a lot with his joints.

I have a TFT who will be turning 18 in 3 weeks, and he is as happy as can be. I've had him since he was 4 months old. His ribcage is sensitive too, you have to support their butt when you pick them up. My mom has a TFT too who is 11 now, and she's the same way. She'll throw out her knee if you don't support her butt when you pick her up. Both my TFT and my mom's TFT have sensitive stomachs as well. grain free food works best for them. I have made my dogs food for most of his life as a stew with potatoes, carrots, broccoli, oatmeal, kidney beans, scrambled eggs, ground turkey, cranberries, sunflower seeds, and flax oil. I also give him "missing link" powder on his food once and a while, and grain free treats with glucosamine in them.

Personally I would not board a dog so long in a kennel. You risk several kennel spread diseases, the attention is limited and surroundings will be strange. Why don't you look into a home care situation where someone would foster your toy fox terrier for a fee in their home. The vet or rescues may recommend one or look online and get references and check out place. This way your pup will be in a home environment which is less stressful and get more attention. Traveling with any pet depends on what activities you will be doing and type of transport as well as temperament of pet. I traveled with some of my pets and they loved it-others were left home because stress caused incontinence, vomiting and anxiety.

I was raised with five toy fox terriers ( we bought one and she was pregnant and we kept the others). They are fiercely loyal to their owners and families and are WONDERFUL with small children ( personal knowledge) if you treat them with respect. Even though they are tiny, they are amazing watch dogs and will keep your children safe by alerting everyone of an intruder. I am saddened that people are claiming to keep small children away from them. I was two when we brought Penelope home and she was with me until my junior year in college. My whole dorm mourned her passing because she was such an amazing dog with spark. Toy fox terriers can teach your children a great deal about standing up for yourself, respect and loyalty. If someone seemingly threatened me as a child, Penny would leap in the air and bark at them. ( strong muscles in their tiny legs!!) Give them a shot -- they are a big dog in a lil dog body and very sparky.

She gets into all the small things but lets the little one hold her all the time. She also loves the 2 cats Ihave who are bigger than her and plays with one of them like she is a cat. However the big dog mentality is there. She listens best to me as I'm the main one who feeds and takes care of her so will follow me everywhere. I trained without a leash and will never go anywhere.

I have 2 Toy Fox Terriers, the girl is 3 yrs old and weighs 5 lbs; the boy is 18 mos old and weighs 15 lbs. We recently introduced an 8 wk old kitten into our house as a gift for one of my 3 children. The problem is that our female TFT will chase and bite the cat. I am worried that she might kill the poor kitten. I have been keeping the kitten locked in my son's bedroom and will only bring the kitten out when the dogs are either outside or in their crate. The female TFT has bit the kitten's tail, ear, head, and side (though not drawing blood). She is VERY vicious towards the kitten. Is this normal TFT behavior? What can we do so that she will get along with the kitten? The boy TFT doesn't seem to care too much about the kitten one way or the other though he will sometimes bark but he does not attack like the female TFT does. HELP!

The cat is small, quick, and too similar to the older dog's natural prey (small rodents ie mice, moles, rats, young ground hogs, etc.) The young dog can safely be introduced to the kitten, but I fear the older dog will not welcome the newcomer and may well injure/kill it. It is in their nature.

I would not put a TFT with small children. They are very fragile and can easily break their legs if dropped or they jump off of high places. As for temperament, they are fantastic with people and children. (At least the ones I have had) I did have a larger female that was 12 pounds. She was very sturdy and would have been fine with a younger child. My TFT now is only 4.3 lbs and I would not let a small child handle her.

Agreed. My 5 yr old daughter dropped our TFT puppy and broke her leg. Healed well but was a HORRIBLE experience for everyone involved. Either get a larger dog or wait until the kids are older and more mature.

I am moving in with my boyfriend, and he has a 18 lbs cat that is about 5 or 6. I have a 5 lbs... I am moving in with my boyfriend, and he has a 18 lbs cat that is about 5 or 6. I have a 5 lbs Toy Fox Terrier that is 7. Both of our animals have never lived with other animals. My TFT gets really nervous around other dogs and usually starts growling. The two animals met and the cat was nervous and hissing at my TFT. Does anyone have any ideas how we can help them learn to like each other? I'm really nervous that the cat will hurt my dog.

Ya gotta love it as a Toy Fox Terrier owner we are so worried about our babies. I think that in time the cat will adjust. I brought my puppy into a house with two boston terriers both 14 years old the female never liked or tolorated other animalls. Even though in her old age she eventually accepted the puppy the puppy learned what to do and not to do. I have photos of them in the same bed shorty before my female boston passed which was only a few weeks ago.

First, be sure your Toy Fox Terrier knows you are approaching. She may have trouble seeing in the dark. You may want to get her checked for health problems. She could be developing arthritis, fibromyalgia, etc. which make being lifted painful.

My Toy Fox Terrier started going blind at the age of 4. I took him to a specialist and he said it is probably hereditary. I had to have his left eye removed at the age of six, and he went blind in his right eye not too long after. I just lost him at the age of 14, two weeks ago, five days before he turned 15, he had a brain tumor.

My Toy Fox Terrier sheds horribly, can anyone suggest a remedy short of shaving her coat?

We had 2 Toy Fox Terrier's when I was growing up. They never shed badly, and as a breed they don't normally shed. You will probably want to take your dog to the vet - she may have skin allergies. Your vet will also be able to recommend things to help you. Otherwise, use a gentle shampoo (I use Hartz Oatmeal Shampoo) and comb daily.
