Toy Foxton Breed History

The Toy Foxton is a hybrid dog that was developed from crossing a Boston Terrier with a Toy Fox Terrier. Like most hybrids, their history is rather unknown; it is believed this designer dog was created in the last two decades. The Boston Terrier was created in the late 1800s, in Boston, Massachusetts. There are several hypotheses about this breed’s origin. It is believed the breed was developed by crossing Bulldogs with English White Terriers (now extinct), with the objective to create a new fighting breed. Another common belief is that a Bulldog/English Terrier mix, named Judge, was imported from England. Whichever was true, a 32 pound Bulldog/English Terrier named Judge did indeed exist, and it is known he gave origin to the Boston Terrier breed. It is thought that the French Bulldog also participated in the development of the Boston Terrier. The breed was known by several names; like bullet heads, round-headed bull-and-terrier, American Terrier, Boston Bulldogs, and Boston Bull Terriers. The breed was recognized by the American Kennel Club as the Boston Terrier in 1893, and it is the first made in the United States breed acknowledged by the American Kennel Club. On the other hand, it is well known that Terriers have been in England since the 1500s. One of the oldest Terriers is the Smooth Fox Terrier, which was created to assist in fox hunting. This breed’s size range was very wide. The smaller Smooth Fox Terriers were highly prized as they were more courageous than the bigger ones. The Smooth Fox Terrier was recognized by the United Kennel Club in 1912, and all sizes were registered within the same breed. It wasn’t until 1936 that, thanks to fancier's many efforts, the small ones were registered as the Toy Fox Terrier. The Toy Fox Terrier was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 2003.

Toy Foxton Breed Maintenance

The Toy Foxton is a moderate shedder and is not hypoallergenic; this is important to take into account if there are allergic people in the household. His hair is short and smooth, which makes it easy to clean. You should brush him every two or three days to eliminate loose hair, and you can clean any dirt using a damp cloth or a wipe. These dogs are not smelly, so bathe him only when necessary to avoid drying out his skin. He might have easily irritated skin, so a hypoallergenic shampoo is highly recommended. Brush his teeth two or three times a week, and trim his nails bimonthly. You should also clean his ears every week, using a cotton and a veterinary-recommended ear cleaning solution.

Toy Foxton Temperament

The Toy Foxton is known for his friendly, outgoing, and playful personality. These dogs are great with children and other dogs, and will play with everyone who is up for it. He is also very protective, and makes a great guardian dog. This hybrid is highly intelligent, and will likely be easy to train and understand you rapidly. These dogs might be hunting-driven, so early socialization is important to prevent him from attacking smaller animals.

These dogs are energetic, active, and cheerful; they will always be in the mood for playtime and making new friends. 

Toy Foxton Activity Requirements

The Toy Foxton is a very energetic dog; as are both of his parent breeds. He will require 45 to 60 minutes of daily activity to stay healthy and happy. Two daily 30 minute brisk walks are suggested, as well as trips to a dog park where he can run leash-free and socialize with other dogs. He also enjoys swimming, fetching, and exploring. Taking him to a beach or a lake are greatly welcomed outings. He also likes getting attention, so taking some time to play with him daily will make him happiest. These dogs live best in a warm weather climate and in a house with a fenced-yard, to prevent them from wandering. However, they can adapt to apartment living, but they will need plenty of activity outdoors.
