In the early 20th century, American breeders of sleek fox terriers built toy fox terriers by crossing their litter runs with toy dogs, Chihuahua, and Italian greyhound. The result was the fire of a true terrier near a dog, but with an attractive toy-bred personality. They started out as barnyard ratters, but soon found their way to show business, where their shrewdness, grace and nifty look served them well as circus trick dogs. Today they perform at the championship levels in competitive agility.
