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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Toy Fox Terriers true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys.

How can I ensure that I get a Toy Fox Terrier that is small like 6 lbs?

1 Comment


The Toy Fox Terrier averages between 3.5 - 7 lbs at full grown. To ensure that you get a dog that will be within the set standard, you need to find a breeder that also shows their dogs in confirmation shows. Confirmation shows are designed to ensure the set standard of each breed is continued throughout each generation.

Anonymous asked:
I am confused as to the weight of the Toy Fox Terrier. When I look online, I see dogs that are closer to a 15-20 lb range but the research indicates that this breed is, on average, under 9 lbs. My dog who recently passed was advertised as a toy fox terrier as well but she got up to 23 lbs and was not overweight. I want a dog that was the same breed as my dog who passed but I cannot tell if she was really a rat terrier being sold as a toy fox terrier, especially since these online sites are advertising dogs just like her despite being over 10 lbs.

Your dog, if at 23 lbs, was not severely overweight. He was most likely not a Toy Fox Terrier, but a Smooth Fox Terrier. They are a breed that averages 19-23 lbs and look a lot like the Toy Fox Terrier and the Rat Terrier. I'm sorry for your loss of your dog, a beloved pet can never be replaced. Check out the Smooth Fox Terrier and contact a local breeder to ask some behavioral questions to see if your dog could have been of that breed instead.

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

1 Comment


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.

Anonymous asked:
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.
