PURPLE HEART O'BJ

Toy Fox Terriers O'BJ Foundation Female

  

Heart Of Gold, Sweet Heart, Brave Heart, you name it, she is my heart-dog because she's everything the Toy Fox Terrier should be. She will be bred in late 2021.

 

She is my lapdog, best friend, and mother of my Noble Heart O'BJ. Heart carries the top show bloodlines (Barbary) on her sire's side and my two foundation females on the bottom of her distinguished pedigree.

Heart earned her name when she jumped off the deck and landed with her front leg in a concrete block left by the construction guys. She then "bravely" wore a cast with no complaint, clumping through the house like a soldier...

 

Heart's mother is Glimmer To Go (left). Glimmer was my "keeper puppy" from Ch. Fannie Mae O'BJ's litter.

 

I love this candid shot of Glimmer, just sitting there watching, wondering what we're doing with her puppies but trusting...  Glimmer was an incredibly "good dog" and a sweet soul and she passed both characteristics on to Heart.

 

If you've explored this site you know that brittle bone syndrome sometimes occurs in toy breeds. Having had big Working Breeds all my life, the possibility of a broken bone scared me. My dog show friends who had Toy Breed dogs assured me "brittle bone syndrome" was a genetic factor brought on by thoughtless breeders and it could be avoided.  not one relating to

 

  I did a lot of research on this "new" breed and with the help of my dear friend Rick Beauchamp, a very famous dog show judge, I was able to reach out across the country and secure an outstanding male.

 

Toy Fox Terrier male - Johnny at just over 5 pounds.Heart's sire was Barbary Johnny Cash O'BJ, a exceptionally sound and perfectly constructed male from my good friend Denise Monet in California. The candid photo below says it all about Johnny. Incredibly sound, he was 5.25 pounds of solid muscle, a size reducer who generously imparted his "up on leg" and perfect balance. I miss him to this day...

 

 Johnny also had the dense solid bone which he passed to his progeny along with his short-coupled, strong topline, true terrier alertness and of course, the Toy Fox Terrier personality. To learn more about Heart's sire and dam, click the O'BJ Gene Bank in the top navigation.

 

Here is Heart learning to "pose" as a puppy.  You can see why we named her Heart.  Her distinctive marking says it all.  She's precocious and brave ("showing off" on the table at 9 weeks) and since it was a "P" litter, we named her Purple Heart O'BJ.

 

This head study at left taken at 27 months shows Heart's perfect profile, strong muzzle and deep terrier jaw with strong teeth.

 

She grew up with the same balance and perfect proportion.  As a female, her back is a little longer to accomodate beautiful babies <smile> but her strong bone, soundness and exceptional breed type hasn't changed.

 

Her photo at right is an awkward angle but shows her perfect ears, beautiful head and large dark eyes which she passes on to her puppies.

 

Heart rivals Sucha as the most intelligent, quick learner I have.  Her round-bed is under my desk and she's my TV dog every night.  She's never been "trained" because she obeys my every thought!

 

Heart will be bred in fall of 2021.  This will be "our" last litter (mine and hers, we're both retiring :)  See Heart's previous puppy page. Contact me (below) for information and availability.
