Not much is known about the origin or history of the Toy Foxker, but we can determine part of its history through its parentage. The Toy Foxker is a cross between the Cocker Spaniel and Toy Fox Terrier; two intelligent, friendly breeds. Spaniels have been around since antiquity, but the Cocker Spaniel dates back to late 19th century England, where the breed was largely used as a bird dog for sport on land and water. Over time, the Cocker Spaniel became more well-known for its gentle nature and unbreakable loyalty, making it the perfect dog for families with small children. This continues to be true today. Along with its family-friendly attitude, the Cocker Spaniel also excels as a show dog and therapy companion. It is harder to pinpoint exactly when the Toy Fox Terrier came into existence, but the earliest recordings of the breed are at the start of 20th century, America, where the bread was often confused with its cousin, the Smooth Fox Terrier. Small in stature but overflowing with energy, these small dogs were often sought after for their agility. In fact, many of these dogs were used as performance animals in circuses, doing stunts and tricks to wow audiences. They were also commonly bred to catch rats and other rodents, though, today, are most often kept as companion animals. Both breeds love to be around people and are constantly seeking praise and attention; something that can be said of the Toy Foxker as well. This unique breed possesses the natural abilities of its ancestors: it excels at hunting and capturing its prey, while also maintaining an incredibly strong sense of loyalty towards its owners.
