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.

Our toy fox terrier is 10 weeks old and her fontanell has not yet closed, is this common?

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?

2 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

There really is no difference to me. The only thing is if you don't get them spayed or neutered. Male could cock there leg and female come in . overall get family dog

I have a 2 yr old TFT and every summer she bites an pulls the hair off her back and scratches until she has sores. She gets regular flea bathes throughout the yr to prevent fleas. What could be causing her to do this???

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

My 6 year toy fox terrier has a bad skin rash all over her right paw and then spread to her face... My 6 year toy fox terrier has a bad skin rash all over her right paw and then spread to her face and neck The vet charged me almost 2000 to say she has a bacteria. Thats after the second vet had stated that in the beginning. Anyway it's getting worse. She says its an allergy so we gave her food from the vet and meds buts it's not getting any better, she looks worse. I think it pyoderma. Anyone out there have this too. I think is hyperthyroidism

Your Toy fox is having allergic reaction. It more than likely the food you are feed and grass outside. Start her out with two benadryl pills a day then when see its getting better change to one a day !! ( you can get them a wal mart. they are pink ) ... A food i think will help you is Eukanauba small breed ....If the food has corn in the lst 3 ingredients then that is all you are feed her... not good for a dog that has allergies
