Fox Terrier - Wire Characteristics

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 New Hampshire?

Different studies rank New Hampshire quite differently. Depending on what part of the state you live in, you may have different levels of access to pet services, accommodations, etc. 


In a study by Pawsafe, New Hampshire ranked incredibly well as the 5th most pet-friendly state. They scored New Hampshire particularly well for their animal welfare laws, like harsh penalties for abuse and neglect, and high pet care standards. 


Another study by the animal safety site Safewise didn’t give such shining reviews, though. In their study, New Hampshire ranks as the 40th most pet-friendly state. 


Though the two studies produced wildly different results, if we combine the two scores New Hampshire ranks somewhere in the middle of the pack of pet-friendly states. Not the best, but not the worst!
