TOY FOX TERRIER PUPPIES!
Perfect Puppies For Picky People...
In 2005 a caller asked if I had a perfect puppy for a really picky person. I laughed, said "Yes I do!" and she became an O'BJ owner. When I decided to make a Toy Fox Terrier website, it seemed like the perfect slogan. Like people, no dog is "perfect" but after 51 years of striving for perfection and in the process, creating over 300 AKC Champions in 3 breeds, I'm still loving the challenge.
So to save you a lot of time, take 90 seconds (yeah, I timed the read) to learn what is important to me and I hope, to you. If you are impatient, you can skip all this important information (smile) and scroll to litter info below.
Whether you want a show puppy or family pet, you care about health and overall quality. Well good, because O'BJ puppies come with credentials! Bill and I had bred All-Time Top record holders in three breeds (AKC Hall Of Fame Master Breeder) before discovering this pint-sized brainiac!
The photo at right shows where my puppies are born, 11 feet from my desk... where I am most of the time. At night mother-to-be is in my lap (ignoring TV) or in her snuggle-bed by my bedside.
Toy Fox Terriers learn so quick... At about 28 days, they 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 office exploring (and chasing dust balls)! Then, at 8 weeks as shown in these two litters born the very same week, they move into the dog room where their mother shows them how to go outside through the doggie door.
All Toy Fox Terrier puppies are clever but dogs should excel at what they were bred to do. The first thing you should know is that not all TFTs are created equal. O'BJ Toy Fox Terriers are known for above average intelligence, vibrant good health and strong bones. After so many years with big dogs (Rottwielers, Akitas and Bull Terriers) our first Toy Fox Terrier purchase taught me about brittle bone syndrome. It was a horrible experience but it made us insist on the same genetic strength that made Akitas O'BJ known worldwide. We also learned about "toy dog teeth" and the expense involved. So in addition to strong bones, we insist on a deep jaw and big terrier teeth.
A well bred , properly raised Toy Fox Terrier will be with you longer than that new car so buying a puppy deserves the same research. Sobering thought eh? 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 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? Well, most toy breeds couldn't care less about catching a mouse but please remember, the Toy Fox Terrier is in the UKC Terrier Group, the original registry for the breed. The TFT 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 Toy Fox Terriers have a "terrier mouth" capable of gnawing a raw beef bone or a drumstick - and they get them twice a week!
