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.

Does your Toy Fox Terrier bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Toy Fox Terrier puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

How much does a 6 year old 4 lb Fox Terrier, Toy cost?

Price would all depend on if the dog is pure bred and papered, is a stud or not and the over-all health, breeding, temperament and if the dog is being sold as a stud dog or not. It could cost anywhere between $500.00 for a rehoming fee of a pet to $2000.00 or more for a purebred, stud dog that has had all of his health checks done and has competed and completed a championship in show.

Do all male puppies spray and/or mark? If so, are there ways to stop or prevent this action?

1 Comment

Dogs in general, are known to mark their territory more often if intact. However, if a dog is house trained then he/she should not mark at all inside a house. I live in with 5 intact dogs, three females and two males and never once have ever had a marking issue. But unless your dog is of impeccable breeding, and is going to be shown and bred later on in life, it is best to have your dog spayed/neutered to decrease the hormone level of your dog to not encourage marking.

What should be watched for with a Toy Fox Terrier with an underbite? Is this a health problem for the breed?

1 Comment

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.

Our Toy Fox Terrier is 10 weeks old and her fontanel has not yet closed, is this common?

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

Our Toy Fox Terrier has become a picky eater. What can we do and what do they like to eat?

If your dog is a picky eater, it is time for a vet visit. Being picky could stem from your dog having allergies to its 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) than 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.
