Toy Fox Terrier Grooming and Breed Care

Toy Fox Terrier Temperament

The Toy Fox Terrier is a comical, entertaining, and playful little dog, even when he grows up. Spirited, determined, and with bags of courage, these dogs make great companions and family pets, suited to both experienced and inexperienced dog owners. The Toy Fox Terrier has a protective streak when it comes to his loved ones, knows no fear, and will bark to raise the alarm, all of which makes him an effective watchdog. He does have a fair amount of energy and likes to play, but he is adept at entertaining himself indoors and is not demanding in terms of activity. These dogs are agile and quick on their feet, with an inquisitive nature. This means that you need to ensure that any play area provided for him is safe and secure to prevent escape. He has a keen sense of smell and sight, and is intelligent and responsive.

The Toy Fox Terrier is ideal for those that like to cuddle their pets, as he loves being handled. However, he does not appreciate being roughly handled, and this means that he is best around older, gentle children. His eagerness to please coupled with his intelligence makes training less of a challenge, but beware - housebreaking could be quite a different matter. The Toy Fox Terrier gets along fine with other pets in most cases, but he will not be bossed around by them - the Toy Fox Terrier is not at all afraid to stand up to another animal. These dogs are adaptable in terms of their living environment, as they will amuse and entertain themselves. However, they do thrive on the interaction and affections of their owners.

Toy Fox Terrier Appearance

The Toy Fox Terrier is a little dog with a big personality. He has a sturdy build, and an eager, alert expression, which is added to by his large, pricked up ears. The coat of the Toy Fox Terrier is short, close fitting, and smooth, with a shiny finish. He is tri-colored, with white being the main color, coupled with patches of black and tan. The height of the Toy Fox Terrier is around 9-11 inches, and these little dogs weigh in at around 3-7 pounds.

Toy Fox Terrier Grooming

If you have little time to dedicate to grooming then the Toy Fox Terrier could prove ideal. You only need to brush his coat occasionally to keep it smooth and shiny. Although he is not a very heavy shedder, he does shed on a year round basis, so may not be suited to severe allergy sufferers.

Toy Fox Terrier Health Problems and Life Expectancy

The life expectancy of the Toy Fox Terrier is 12-15 years, and there are a number of health problems to look out for with this breed. This includes vWD, luxating patella, heart problems, seizures, and thyroid problems. The parents of the Toy Fox Terrier puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates, and you should also ask about patella clearance.

Toy Fox Terrier History

Descending from the Smooth Fox Terrier, the Toy Fox Terrier originates from England. He has gone on to become a very amiable companion as well as an effective mouse catcher.
