Living Area: The Wire Fox Terrier can live in either a house or an apartment style environment. They are quite active indoor animals and therefore will do fine without a yard. However, if they do live in an environment without a yard, it is important for them to be outside and obtain sufficient exercise. This could be just a long walk a day or a romp through the park. If they are living in an environment with a yard, letting them outside to run around in the yard daily is plenty of exercise. However, the Wire Fox Terrier should not be left outside alone because they are likely to bark and try to dig their way out.

About this Breed

The Wire Fox Terrier is an elegant and well built dog. It has a lot of strength compacted into a small structure. They are hunting and tracking dogs by nature and therefore are built with agility and many other hunting qualities. They have strong well developed jaws and teeth, eagerness, and physical strength. Above all else though, they pack a lot of courage. These are considered its weapons of attack. The eyes are dark, small, and deep set. Their neck is thick and extremely muscular. The skull is flat, tapering, and narrow skull. The ears are v-shaped and fold forward. The hair on the upper and lower jaws should only be long enough to give the impression of strength. The length of the coat depends on the climate, owner’s preference, seasons, and individual animal but is typically ¾-1 inch on the shoulders and neck. The coat is a longer 1.5 inches on the back, quarters, withers, and ribs. The chest should be deep but not too broad or too narrow. The brisket should be deep, the front ribs arched moderately, and the back ribs should be deep and well sprung. The shoulders should slope steeply down towards the points, which should be fine. A shoulder that is well laid back combined with a short back is considered very desirable in the Wire Fox Terrier. Hindquarters should be strong and muscular with long and powerful thighs. The feet should be round and compact with pads that are tough and well-cushioned. The gait of the Wire Fox Terrier is crucial. They should be carried straight forward while traveling with forelegs that hang perpendicular and swinging parallel to the sides. This gives the look of a pendulum clock. The power and propulsion of the Wire Fox Terrier is derived from its powerful and long thighs.
