Terrier breeds have been documented in England since the 16th century. One such breed was the Smooth Fox Terrier, developed to scare foxes out of their dens while hunting. The Smooth Fox Terrier had always been very different in size, with some dogs weighing around 20 pounds while others were as small as 7 pounds. These dogs were often more prized than larger dogs as they appeared to be more feisty and more willing to jump into the fray, whether it be to hunt, hunt other animals, or defend the farm. The United Kennel Club began registering Smooth Fox Terriers in 1912. Smaller dogs were registered along with larger dogs as Smooth Fox Terriers. In the mid-1920s, fans of smaller dogs petitioned the UKC to make smaller dogs a separate breed, which was finally accomplished in 1936. The breed was registered as a Toy Fox Terrier. The TFT received recognition from the American Kennel Club in 2003. For many years there was a debate among breeders about size, some wanted a bigger dog; others wanted the dog to remain a toy. Some fanciers introduced Toy Manchester and Chihuahua blood to the breed to help fix size. This move upset other breeders who did not want contamination of other breeds in the gene pool. The UKC agreed that the dog should remain a toy and that no other breeds should be introduced into the gene pool. The Toy Fox Terrier studbook was closed by the UKC on August 31, 1960, so no further crossbreeds could be made.
