The Toy Foxillon is the result of a cross between the Toy Fox Terrier and the Papillon. It is an energetic, happily outgoing dog that is equally suitable for the outdoors as indoors. As small as it is, the Toy Foxillon offers a lot in terms of affection and attachment to its owner, and will thrive on sessions of play or just plain cuddling.
The Toy Fox Terrier is believed to be a mix of the Smooth Fox Terrier with other, smaller breeds. It is an American breed, intelligent enough to master several voiced commands and was at one time used in shows and circuses. A terrier as well as a toy, the Toy Fox Terrier is a good working dog and enjoys hunting squirrel and small game. It is a bold, fearless dog that is devoted to its owner, and remains playful and active throughout its life.
The Papillon is a breed that originated from Spain, and is valued today for its lively elegance and suitability as a companion and lap dog. The name is for its large, butterfly-like ears, which are usually prick and fringed with long fur. In the same litter, another type, with drop ears, may be born, and these as called Phalene (French for "month").
