Welcome to Wender's
Toy Fox Terrier's! We are glad you stopped by.
Wender's Toy Fox Terrier's was started by myself and my son. We
are located on Whidbey Island in Western Washington. We are reasonably new to the TFT breed, but not to raising and
showing beautiful, healthy, athletic dogs. I began raising and showing Italian Greyhounds. Due to a serious
family situation, I stopped showing dogs for awhile. I took about 4 years off to get back on my feet, and then
began my search again. I wanted a forever dog that did not need as much room as my IG's, were good with children,
fun, and sensible. I wanted a dog I could relate to. I was determined to take my time and refused to jump
into anything, even though I was very excited about having a puppy around again. I started by searching the AKC website,
and studied up on different breeds. I couldn't seem to find one that really fit the description of what I was looking
for. Then one night I was sitting on the couch watching a dog show that came on, and as I watched, I
saw him! The cutest little dog was prancing around the ring. The announcer called him a Toy Fox Terrier.
That was the beginning of my love affair with the breed. The next day I went out and started studying everything I could
get my hands on about this wonderful little dog. I discovered that he was not a toy dog at all, but actually a
tiny terrier. He has some of the good traits of the larger terriers such as being tough, playful, energetic and smart.
But he had the size that I wanted and the common sense all wrapped up in a tiny 5-8 pound package. I wanted a dog that
would live in the house with me as my pet one minute, and as my showdog the next. The Toy Fox Terrier
was the perfect dog for me.
