"Puppies with a future - from dogs with a past!"




Born September 2018 and pictured at 14 months old (right) you can see his big expressive eyes and calm, happy attitute.


Noble's rich rust markings are like gold in a breeding program. The Toy Fox Terrier is in danger of losing the strikingly characteristic red-brown markings along with the tight glossy coat for which the Toy Fox Terrier (and Doberman) are known.


In soundness and conformation he is superb and a natural poser because as dog show and horse people say, 'built right, stands right'.


At 18 months Noble is a really "Handsome" TFT like his famous grandfather, Ch. Hugely (see menu bar) who broke all records in the breed ring and made the Toy Fox Terrier 'the breed to beat' in the AKC Toy Group.


Toy Fox Terriers are physcially mature at this age and Noble's square outline, structural soundness and classic breed type make him hard to fault whether standing or gaiting.


Noble's sire, Rolex Right O'BJ is also known for his faultless rear, proportion, proud stance and those big round eyes that are the hallmark of this toy-terrier breed.


I like candid shots because even an unsound or poorly made dog can be hand-posed to conceal structural faults but it is how the dog presents himself that matters.


I have hundreds of show photos but prefer to show you these candid, ungroomed, untrimmed, and totally natural snapshots.


Here is Noble's mother Purple Heart O'BJ, so named because as a baby, she leaped off the deck and landed with her front leg in a concrete block. Earning her name, she bravely accepted a cast nearly as big as she was!  Undaunted, she clump-clumped through the house and healed without so much as a scar!


Factcheck: For those who know broken bones can be a problem in toy breeds, Heart is the only O'BJ dog that has ever had a broken bone. I breed for strong dense bone just as my Akitas O'BJ are still known for world-wide.  Heart Of Gold, Sweetheart, Brave Heart, you name it, she is my heart-dog, my every-night lap dog and everything the TFT can and should be.


Noble's personality is all his!  Even as a baby he stood out for being his own little guy.  He made up new games and deliberately hid toys from his littermates and calmly observed their excitement when they found them!


He has taken it upon himself to "check his territory" each time they go out to run and play. I was first impressed by his exceptional balance and movement as he trotted along the fence line.  Then, after a few days of watching and admiring his "gait" I realized his ritual had purpose. It gave me goosebumps when I realized he was doing exactly what his grandsire Hugely always did...


And yes, I still marvel at that same incredible "side-gait" as Noble swiftly checks his territory.  Then satisfied there have been no intruders (like the 5 foot long black snake they killed!) he doubles back... purposly lifting his leg along the way.


His self-appointed job completed, Noble dashes off to play with the rest of the pack. And yes, all three of my "stud dogs" play and get along amicably but no, they do not go out together when I have a female in season. Then it is double-shifts 4 times a day but worth the extra time.


Noble Heart O'BJ is a phenomonally strong genetic package based on classic breed type, structure and character. Last night, as he nudged his mother over and claimed his place in my lap, I thanked him and his grandsire, my beloved Hugely. And that is why in my 80s, I plan to keep creating masterpieces...
