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 Oklahoma?

We have a few different studies to rank Oklahoma, and overall it’s a pretty great place to own a pet! 


Two major studies ranked all 50 states by several factors related to pet-friendliness. They evaluated indicators like access to pet services and veterinary care, animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, outdoor space, and dog parks. 


The first study, by an animal safety group called Pawsafe, ranked Oklahoma quite well as the 16th most pet-friendly state in the country. The state scored well with Pawsafe for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Another broad study, conducted by a consumer safety review site called Safewise, didn’t rank the state quite as well. Oklahoma came in 33rd most pet-friendly state in the country according to Safewise. 


However, if we take the two studies together, Oklahoma is good to average in the pet-friendliness category.
