The Toy Fox Terrier was bred from various dogs including the Italian Greyhound, Manchester Terrier, Chihuahua, Miniature Pinscher and the Smooth Fox Terrier and is now a truly American dog. This dog is courageous, intelligent and has a “take-charge attitude.” He loves flushing out rodents and hunting squirrels.
His colour can be tri-colour, black and white, tan and white, tan and chocolate or white. He’s friendly, outgoing and fiercely loyal to his family. He’s able to handle lots of different activities but equally loves lazing around and lapping up the sun, or lounging on your sofa. Children love his zest for life but as he’s a Toy, he’s not the ideal dog for small children. He can live in an apartment as he’s small but he loves the outdoors. He needs to be brushed each week to stop shedding and he needs an occasional bath. His height is 8 – 11 inches.
