The TFT is dynamite in the shape of a dog. Descended from the larger Fox Terrier, the Toy was developed in the 1920s. The United Kennel Club began registering the breed in 1936. Prized as a watchdog, vermin killer and playmate, the breed has prospered in rural areas. However, its size and hardiness make it equally adaptable to the city. Toy Fox Terriers love children and make great playmates as well as intelligent watchdogs. However, small children might be too rough for this little dog and should be supervised when playing with one. The TFT weighs between 3.5 and 7 pounds. The coat is short and satiny, and weekly grooming and minimal exercise requirements help make this affectionate dog a great buddy.
