In The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Baum did not specifically state Toto's breed, but describes him as "a little black dog (male although he was played by a female dog in the 1939 MGM movie) with long silky hair and small black eyes that twinkled merrily on either side of his funny, wee nose".

As the story goes, "For the movie 'The Wizard of Oz,' Judy Garland was paid $35 a week while Toto received $125 a week." As I noted in an old Movie Legends Revealed, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer wanted Shirley Temple for the role of Dorothy but she was under contract with 20th Century Fox.
