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



Perfect Puppies For Picky People...


See TFT puppy pictures plus photos of sire, dam and ancestors. Toy Fox Terrier lap dogs and top show quality puppies lovingly created by AKC Hall Of Fame Master Breeder, Barbara J. Andrews.


In 2005 a caller asked if I had a perfect puppy for a really picky person. I laughed, said "Yes I do!" and made that my slogan! Like people, no dog is "perfect" but after 62 years "in dogs" and having bred over 300 AKC Champions in 3 breeds, I'm still loving the challenge. Before the gossip ring gets started, let me state I have never had more than 8 dogs and we always showed them to their AKC championships.


Upcoming litter due by Ima x Noble, November 2022.  Email me for TFT puppy inquiry and to get on my deposit list.


Ch. Hugely Handsome O'BJ (left) broke all AKC show ring records and set "the standard" for Toy Fox Terriers. He is as dominant in my breeding program as he is in my heart.


Purple Heart O'BJ is indeed my heart-dog and my lap dog for evening TV-time! The link to Heart's page is listed on the mobile menu as well as the navigation drop-down if you would like to "meet" her but first, take 90 seconds to decide what matters to you.


You can buy a dog at a pet shop but puppy-mills have thrown a disastrous monkey wrench into canine genetics, especially in matters of health. Whether you want a show puppy or a lap-sized family pet, you care about quality. Everyone claims to have the best Toy Fox Terriers... but has the breeder proven that in the AKC show ring?


In my 80s now and a widow, I no longer show my own dogs but I breed to win in the AKC show ring. We never used professional handlers but O'BJ dogs still hold many all-time AKC records: The top winning Rottweilers (1968), Akitas (1973), Bull Terriers (1991) and Miniature Bull Terriers (1996). All owner-handled by me and my husband.


When we discovered the Toy Fox Terrier, then a UKC breed, I continued to present AKC Judges Seminars but added the not-yet-AKC-accepted TFT to my lectures on the Akita or Mini-Bull. Simultaneously I lobbied the American Kennel Club for breed registration acceptance. When AKC accepted the Toy Fox Terrier in 2003, we again established All-Time AKC show ring records in that breed.


The photo below shows where my puppies are born, 11 feet from my desk... where I am most of the time.



Toy Fox Terriers learn so quick... At about 28 days, the puppies notice their surroundings. At 5 weeks they try yipping at me, demanding attention.  I'm pretty smart too so I stay focused on the computer and ignore them. At this age, a puppy's attention span is shorter than a gnat's leg so they go back to playing with their toys.


But within another week, they'll be all over the NetPlaces Network office exploring (and chasing dust balls). Then, at 7 weeks they move to the dog room where they can go in/out through the doggie door, play on the grass and get full sunshine.


O'BJ Toy Fox Terriers are known for above average intelligence, vibrant good health and strong bones.  After forty years with big dogs, our first Toy Fox Terrier purchase taught me about brittle bone syndrome.  That was a heartbreaking experience but it made me insist on the genetics and structural strength for which Akitas O'BJ are known worldwide.


MALE TOY FOX TERRIER PUPPY at 4 MONTHS...and in addition to strong bones, my little dogs have big deeply rooted terrier teeth, not typically weak "toy dog" teeth.


A well bred, properly raised Toy Fox Terrier will be with you longer than a new car so buying a puppy deserves the same thoughtful research.  The funny thing is that most owners wouldn't trade their O'BJ puppy for two new cars!  Bragging?  I guess, but your car isn't your best friend, right?


This 4 months old male puppy out of AKC Ch. Fannie Mae O'BJ, shows what you should be looking for. A Toy Fox Terrier puppy should have a deep, well developed "underjaw" (see his strong chin?) with large, deeply rooted "terrier teeth".  Show or pet puppy, you want a little dog that can see, hear, breathe and eat - a toy dog whose teeth don't fall out and whose legs don't break.  These are terrier characteristics which I demand in my bloodline.


Why?  Because the Toy Fox Terrier is a Terrier in a Toy dog body.  That makes him an ideal lap dog but with the strong physique and vibrant health of a terrier. If the Toy Fox Terrier sounds like a fit for you, contact me but first, explore my Price, Policy & Guarantee.
