The Toy Fox Terrier is a small
descended from the larger
Terrier but considered a separate breed.
The Toy Fox Terrier is an intelligent, bold and athletic little dog. Although
lithe, it is hardy and well balanced. Toy Fox Terriers are said to love human
company. A related breed is the
Miniature Fox Terrier, which was developed along similar lines in Australia.
Toy Fox Terriers, like many active and intelligent breeds, can learn to
respond to many words. Toy Fox Terriers were used commonly in circus shows by
clowns so they make great companions for owners with a good sense of humor.
Some Toy Fox Terrier breeders can trace their dogs’ lineage back to a
Smooth Fox Terrier called "Foiler", the first fox terrier registered by the
Kennel Club in Britain, circa
It is believed that careful breeding from smaller Smooth Fox Terriers with
outcrosses to other toy breeds such as
Manchester Terrier and
Chihuahua resulted in the Toy Fox Terrier of today. Toy Fox Terriers are
also called American Toy Terriers or Amertoys.
Toy Fox Terriers were recognized by the
United Kennel Club (UKC) in
1936 and placed in
the Terrier Group, and by the
American Kennel Club (AKC) in July
