Toy Fox Terrier Puppies
Description: The Toy Fox Terrier, also known as the AmerToy or the American Toy Terrier, are so small they can be carried in one arm. Toy Fox Terriers remain playful most of their lives. Their comical antics can entertain you for hours, as they were once used as circus dogs. Toy Fox Terriers are bold and curious, exhibiting their intelligence with easy training. Despite their diminished size they are courageous and are not intimidated by other pets. They do accept other dogs, however, and get along with children who are not rough with them. Toy Fox Terriers make a wonderful indoor companion, obtaining most of their exercise from run of the house. Generally they are a one person or one family dog. A miniature of the Smooth Fox Terrier, Toy Fox Terriers are square in body shape and have tall prick ears that are always on the alert for new sounds. They generally come in colors of Tricolor, Chocolate, or Tan and White. They have large black eyes and a black nose. The Amertoy's tail may be docked or kept. A dog adaptable and small enough to fit into almost anyone's lifestyle, the American Toy Terrier is a lovely companion who can live anywhere from an apartment to the suburbs.

and playful. They remain playful all of their life. Small as they are, they

and can adapt to their human's lifestyle by being active or sedentary. They
are not as active or high-strung as the Jack Russell Terrier.

a fearful bone in their body".

But if you wish to exercise with them, they should have a quick walk and a play session every day.
