Fox Terrier - Wire Characteristics

Originally bred to flush foxes out of their hiding places, the Wire Fox Terrier spends more time today as a household companion.  Intelligent, pleasant, and playful, the Wire Fox Terrier (Or Foxy, as they're known in certain circles) is a loving friend and companion to humans and most other animals. 

Fast Facts

  • Energy
  • Size
  • Trainability
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.
 

How dog-friendly is Idaho?

We have to be honest that Idaho has some areas to improve in its dog-friendly status. But not to worry, the state does have some great highlights! It’s a stellar travel destination for people who travel with their pets and has some very dog-friendly cities. 


Overall, the two leading studies rank Idaho as 36th and 47th for pet-friendliness. Since there are only 50 states, this isn’t the best. The studies compare states by their adherence to important factors like pet-friendly accommodations, access to pet services, animal cruelty laws, and even pet-friendly outdoor space. 


Pawsafe, an animal welfare site, ranks Idaho 47th. Idaho lags behind other states mainly because of its lax animal cruelty laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Safewise, a safety review site, ranked Idaho a little bit higher as the 36th most pet-friendly state in the country. Combining these two studies together puts Idaho towards the middle of the pack of pet-friendly states.
