TFTs are wonderful companions!

From the American Toy Fox Terrier Club description: The TFT makes a wonderful companion and seems to anticipate his master's every thought and mood. Nothing escapes the keen hearing of the TFT which, coupled with his alert nature, makes him an exceptional watchdog.

The TFT is an outgoing and friendly dog, yet fiercely loyal to his family. It is impossible not to spoil these funny, loving, intelligent, and utterly loyal little dogs.

While, like most Toy breeds, the TFT should not be paired with very young children, he is an exemplary companion for all ages. The TFT is content and capable of any range of activities from hunting, to obedience, to just lounging around in the sun (or on the sofa!). Toy Fox Terriers remain playful all of their lives and never tire of entertaining their human companions.

The TFT is a wonderful breed. If you own one, you already know that. If you are considering one, I am sure you will find the Toy Fox Terrier is the toy breed for you.

American originals

Toy Fox Terriers were developed in the United States - a true American original. The breeds contributing to their development included the Chihuahua, Fox Terrier, Italian Greyhound, and Manchester Terrier. They are true terriers - bred to hunt small game independently. Their small size allowed Toy Fox Terriers to fit in saddlebags.

Toy Fox Terriers are athletic and intelligent little dogs, excelling in performance sports including agility, rally, and obedience. Their terrier roots also make them wonderful at tracking and nose work.

Toy Fox Terriers are also famous for their fondness for watching television, and any TFT family will tell you that their days are brightened by the entertaining antics of their pups. Like all very small dogs, they should be socialized from the start - exposing them to all kinds of people, locations, and situations so they do not become fearful. While generally sturdy dogs with minimal grooming and exercise needs, care should always be taken around small children, since rough handling can hurt these little dynamos.
