Wire Fox Terriers are descendants of the Fox Terrier breed and have a long history as hearty hunting companions.  Because their rough white or black coats made them less vulnerable to injury when hunting in rough country, Wire Fox Terriers were favored over their smooth-coated Counterparts.  
 
The Foxy stands about 15 inches to the shoulder and weighs about 15-19 pounds. Though a smaller hunting breed, the Wire Fox Terrier is known to be scrappy and is not afraid to pick fights with dogs much larger than itself. Unless the dog has had ample obedience training and socialization, it is advised that you do not leave your foxy alone with larger dogs.
 
With their high intelligence, Fox Terriers are excellent at learning obedience, agility, and earth trials, testing how competitive a hunter your pup is. They’ll pick up tricks right away, too. Spending time learning these skills with your Wire Fox Terrier is time well spent, as boredom is a primary reason for bad behavior in the house.  
 
The Foxy is an Outgoing, self-assured breed, and has a tendency to find itself in trouble. These dogs love playing with toys and balls, and many enjoy playing in the water. While they're difficult to resist as puppies, be aware that a full-grown Wire Fox Terrier needs a lot of attention and stimulation to remain obedient.
