Our story

Ours is an American breed. While tracing its immediate ancestor to the larger Smooth Fox Terrier for its roots, its development into our current United Kennel Club breed took place in the United States.  The “runts” were often the scrappiest and these brave little dogs went on to become in time our beloved UKC Toy Fox Terrier.

In 1912 the Smooth Fox was first registered by the United Kennel Club.From then until the mid 1920’s there developed a miniature of the Smooth Fox

But it remained registerd as a Fox Terrier (Smooth). Toy Fox Terrier under its present name was registered February 24th,1936 by the United Kennel Club.  

“From the beginning, United Kennel Club has especially stressed the importance of function harmonizing with form to keep the integrity of any given breed alive.”  From an aricle by Andrea Wood published in United kennel Club 1898-1997 The First Hundred Years.

And so the incredible story of the UKC Toy Fox Terrier begins. Follow us along on that Journey….
