What breed of dog is Toto?

Answer

According to the American Kennel Club, in the movie "The Wizard of Oz," Toto was played by a Cairn Terrier. This breed was originally used as working dogs on farms in Scotland for hunting harmful pests.

Cairn Terriers come from the Scottish Highlands and the Isle of Skye. These dogs get their name from their ability to follow a predator, such as a badger or fox, into the animal's "cairn" or den. The terrier corners and traps its prey but does not kill it. Even in residential settings, Cairn Terriers have the instinct to dig into the ground and chase smaller animals.
