Toy Fo-Tzu Breed Maintenance
The Toy Fo-Tzu can need grooming regularly, although shedding is light and seasonal. He requires brushing daily and depending on the length of his coat, he can need bathing regularly too. A slicker brush may be used if your dog has shorter, thinner hair, but if his coat is longer, it is recommended that a pin brush and comb are used if the coat is longer in length and thicker. Both parent breeds, the Shih Tzu and the Toy Fox Terrier are prone to dental problems, so it is important that the teeth of the Toy Fo-Tzu are brushed regularly also to avoid this. Toy Fox Terriers have many food intolerances and allergies, so it is important that high quality food is provided, if this is the case for your Toy Fo-Tzu. Both parent breeds do well to live in apartments, however they are known to bark as they feel necessary as they will often act as a watch dog and bark when strangers enter the home. Their nails should also be trimmed monthly. This dog does best in warmer climates, providing it is not too hot.
