Developed in the 1930s, the Toy Fox Terrier, also known as the Amertoy, is a North American darling. The breed originated in the United States when breeders crossed runts from Smooth Fox Terrier litters with various toy breeds, including the Chihuahua, Miniature Pinscher, Greyhound, and Manchester Terrier. The resulting breed retained the game instincts of the terrier and the more mellow characteristics and smaller size of the toy breeds. Today, the Toy Fox Terrier is known for its playful and oftentimes comedic personality, along with the courage and animation of the terrier bloodline. He became recognized by the American Kennel Club in 2003.


The blend of toy and terrier breeds makes the Toy Fox Terrier a well-rounded dog. This little lap dog has the devotion and affection of the toy breeds and the athletic hunting instincts of the terriers. Highly energetic and intelligent, this dog easily masters tricks and loves to entertain. Toy Fox Terriers are very social and love to spend time engaging in activities with their families. Their independent streaks mean they can be finicky, but it also means they have distinct and unique personalities. Toy Fox Terriers are very well-suited to high agility sports, such as Frisbee and flyball. Their size and friendly temperament make them good travelling companions.
