JUDGING THE TOY FOX TERRIER
Three Top Toy Fox Terrier Breeders Explain...
What is the single most important breed feature and the most common fault Toy Fox Terrier judges should
note before awarding the dog? Judges and TFT breeders respond…
"The word ELEGANT may be the most important word in the standard. This breed is identified by the head. It should never be “apple-headed”. The ears should be high and close set." Violet Denney,
Judge and Toy Fox Terrier breeder.

"Joe", handled by Chris Jones
who showed the judges exceptional type in the Toy Fox Terrier breed rings. AKC Group judges also recognized his balance and soundness by consistently awarding him in tough competition. Joe has now retired from the conformation ring, and begun a new career competing in agility trials with co-owner Dr. Ellanora Ward.
Busy All-Breed UKC judge Ms. Violet Denney says the most common breed fault judges should note before awarding ribbons is...
"Incorrect fronts and rears. The Toy Fox Terrier was designed to run, jump, turn on a dime and hunt rodents. As a UKC judge, I demand correct movement. When coming at me, I want to see just the front legs and when going away, I don’t want to see front legs inside or outside of the rear legs. Both ends have to be balanced for the breed to be as agile as it needs to be."
