The Toy Fox Pinscher is a result of the cross between the Toy Fox Terrier and the Miniature Pinscher. A vigorous and active dog, the Toy Fox Pinscher is not for a sedentary or inexperienced owner. It may be small, but the Toy Fox Pinscher behaves like a larger dog and carries itself proudly.
The Toy Fox Terrier is an American breed, favored by hunters for its size and its quickness and gameness in the hunt. It is a result of crossing the Smooth Fox Terrier with other, smaller breeds, and it is popular both as a hunting companion and a pet.
The Miniature Pinscher, or Min Pin, is a German breed often confused as being a "Miniature Doberman Pinscher." It is a toy dog, once described as looking like a Doberman in miniature, but is a separate breed altogether. Despite being one of the smallest breeds, the Min Pin is an outgoing, independent-minded dog that can be a handful for an inexperienced owner expecting a soft, docile lapdog.
