Toy Fox Terriers
Appearance and GroomingHeight: Ideally around 10 inches
Weight: 3.5 to 7 pounds
Colors: White and black with tan, white/tan, or white/black.
Not to be confused is the Miniature Fox Terrier whose height range is 9-12 inches and weight slightly less that the toy variety.
This is one dog that looks tidy all the time. Grooming is a snap with their smooth easy care coat and light/average amount of shedding. A once a week brush and is all that is normally needed, but bathing should be done at least every two weeks to keep their skin healthy.
They do, however, dislike being wet so keep a super-soft drying towel like the Soggy Doggy, at the ready to dry them off after bathing, or being outside on wet grass or rainy day walks etc.
Activity LevelThe TFT is considered to be self-exercised as a result of his indoor activity always being on the high side.
They'll happily take you for a walk though and it is in the best interest of all dogs to be walked daily for the mental and physical stimulation they need!
Space NeedsThis little dog is very adaptable to most any living situation and requires little space.
While they are not generally nuisance barkers, they can become overly vocal if left alone too long which could become a problem if living in an apartment or in close proximity with neighbors.
Overall the Toy Fox terriers do best in families where someone is home most of the time.
Are ATFs A Good Match For Children?This breed is perfect for kids because they live to play, are smart, clever and have lots of energy.
But, because of their size and energy level, they do best with children over the age of six who are mature enough to be considerate and gentle with pets.
Even so, it is always a good policy to have an adult supervise activities between dogs and youngsters.
Toy Fox And Seniors?Toy Fox Terriers make excellent pets for the more active elderly - being enjoyable, protective, and easy care.
Their high intelligence also makes them very trainable to give assistance.
