The Wire Fox Terrier has the
spunky personality common to terriers. He is enthusiastic, lively, and active.
An ideal children's companion, he never refuses a chance to play. An
entertaining family pet for the active household, the Wire Fox Terrier is
affectionate, trustworthy, and eager to please. Small pets such as cats
may trigger his hunting instinct and being a terrier, he may try to
dominate other dogs.
Alert, determined, and loyal, he also makes an excellent watchdog. As with most terriers, he will
stand his ground against other dogs, and will benefit from early training
and socialization. He is intelligent and learns quickly but can be
stubborn. He responds best to a loving but firm and consistent hand.
is an active breed who needs lots of off-leash exercise and so is happiest
in a home with a large fenced yard.
