TOY FOX TERRIER PUPPIES!
Perfect Puppies For Picky People...
See TFT puppy pictures and photos of the litter sire and dam. Pet and top show quality puppies lovingly created by AKC Hall Of Fame Master Breeder in North Carolina.
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 56 years of trying (breeder of over 300 AKC Champions in 3 breeds) I'm still loving the challenge.
I hope you'll take 70 seconds (yeah, I timed the read) to learn what is important to me and I hope, to you.
Whether you want a show puppy or a lap-sized family pet, you care about health and overall quality. Everyone claims to have the best Toy Fox Terriers... but has the breeder proven that their dogs are all that the TFT can and should be?
My husband enjoyed dog shows and enabled O'BJ to become the AKC record holder of the top winning Rottweilers, Akitas, and Bull Terriers. When advancing age demanded downsizing, we discovered the little Toy Fox Terrier, a traditional UKC breed. We presented the TFT in my AKC judging seminars, to AKC exhibitors, etc. When AKC finally admitted the Toy Fox Terrier to the registry and show ring, we again established All-Time AKC show ring records.
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. 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 their toys.
But within another week, they'll be all over my NetPlaces Network office exploring (and chasing dust balls)!
Then, at 7 or 8 weeks as shown in these two litters born within days of each other, mom and puppies move to the dog room where they learn to go in/out through the doggie door.
All Toy Fox Terrier puppies are clever but not all TFTs are created equal. 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. It was a horrible experience but it made me insist on the genetics and structural strength that had made Akitas O'BJ known worldwide. We also learned about "toy dog teeth" and the expense involved. So in addition to strong bones, my dogs have big deeply rooted terrier teeth.
A well bred, properly raised Toy Fox Terrier will be with you longer than that new car you love so buying a puppy deserves the same 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. The ideal Toy Fox Terrier head has equal proportions and parallel planes. That means in profile the muzzle is at the same angle as the flat topskull (the part from eyes to back of head) with no hint of Chihuahua roundness.
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 that is the hallmark of a working terrier. By the way, my TFTs have a "terrier mouth" capable of gnawing a raw beef bone or chicken wing - and they get them twice a week!
