The Toy Fox Terrier is a big-spirited dog in a beautiful, tiny package. He truly lives up to both parts of his name: as a lapdog he's adorable, lovable, and devoted. As a terrier, he has spirit, smarts, and tenacity. He is a comical love bug with a touch of a Napoleon complex. Toy Fox Terrier owners know they're getting both the feisty determined terrier personality and and the adoring loyalty of a toy dog and these images show both sides of this (usually) delightful companion.

1. He loves you so much, he'll even let you dress him up.

8. Or he may expect a place at the dinner table.

9. But, at the end of the day, it's all belly rubs and kisses.
