History
The breed was developed by mixing a number of terrier breeds, as well as Beagles, Dachshunds and Foxhounds. They were originally developed to hunt vermin and to assist the hunter in the field.
Toy/Miniatures were developed in Australia in the 1800s and were descended from their large cousins brought over from England at the time.
Positives
The breed is easy to care for and get on well with other pets. They love to play, and also make a good sentry to alert owners of visitors to the home.
Negatives
The breed  can be "snappy" around small children if the children do not treat them well. Children need to be educated when interacting with Fox Terriers that the Fox Terrier is a dog and not a toy, thus needing to be properly respected.
