"PR"

Toy Fox Terrier is a descendent of the Smooth Fox Terrier. Since the 1700s, Fox Terriers have kept the estates and farms of England free of foxes who preyed on livestock. 

The smaller of the Fox Terriers were further bred until their size was one-third of the original breed. These Toy Fox Terriers developed into courageous, scrappy, little dogs who didn't hesitate to follow a fox right down into its den. 

The Toy Fox Terrier stands up to 10 inches tall at the shoulder and weighs no more than 7 lbs. He has naturally erect ears, and his short, sleek coat is white with black and/or tan markings. His small size and lack of heavy protective fur make him sensitive to temperature extremes. An easy-care and long-lived dog whose grooming needs are minimal, the Toy Fox Terrier today is a beloved companion and good watchdog.

The Toy Fox Terrier has all the personality of the original Fox Terrier wrapped up in a pint-sized package. Comical and playful, Toy Fox Terriers have been used in 'dog and pony' shows and performed tricks for the circus. The Toy Fox Terrier has the lively, outgoing, and spunky terrier nature. Like the other terriers, he has a "big dog personality in a small dog body". He knows no fear and will not back down even when confronted by much larger dogs. Devoted and loving, the Toy Fox Terrier tends to be a one-person or one-family dog. A definite house dog, he loves to be with his people and does not like living in a kennel. 

A truly easy-care dog, the Toy Fox Terrier can get just about all the exercise he needs by running around the house. Intelligent, and easily trained and housebroken, the Toy Fox Terrier will benefit from early obedience training and socialization. Like many smaller dogs, he is too fragile for the rough housing of very young children.
