Toy breeds include some of the smartest dog breeds out there. In my experience, the Toy Fox Terrier is a very easy breed to housebreak and breed.

What's so great about a Toy Fox Terrier?

  • The Toy Fox Terrier is a breed well known for its intelligence and ability to pick things up very quickly. They're often top dogs when it comes to obedience classes, and the 'TFT' picks up tricks very quickly.
  • They respond very well to vocal commands. The breed was historically used in circus shows because of the dogs' ability to follow orders.
  • They are very sweet-natured and are usually compatible with owners who have a good sense of humour.
  • They are active and engaging, but not as hyper as some terrier breeds (like the Jack Russell).
  • They are great companions and are often recommended for people with disabilities because they are low maintenance but still very sociable.
  • They are undeniably cute. Their naturally docked tail and pointy little ears will have people cooing every time you take your TFT out for a walk.
The downside to Toy Fox Terriers:

It may be hard to believe, but even our friend the Toy Fox Terrier has some negative traits that you should probably be aware of before you go skipping merrily down to your local pet store to adopt one.
  • All terriers love chasing, digging and running around.
  • TFTs can often be very loyal. This can be a positive trait, but it also means they may show hostility to strangers.
  • They can be snappy when annoyed, so are probably not suitable around young children.
  • They have a fairly fragile frame. This means being extra careful when taking them out for walks. Whilst they love to run around, you should be careful not to drag them around on a leash. Body harnesses are always preferred for use on TFTs.

Toy poodles are ever so smart. I have 8-year-old Maltese and he is so smart.

To have a good dog the key is to spend lot of time with them  but I suggest a Maltese or a Poodle, even a Fox Terrier.

I would have to say Chihuahua's are easy to train, love your attention and are willing to learn. I had a Chihuahua for 1 month and had it sitting, jumping in my arm, potty trained and working well on a leash. Hope that helps your decision!!! :)
