Favorite Images of Wire Fox Terriers

Animals list created by kathy Avatar

A list of my favorite images of wire fox terriers.


The Wire Fox Terrier is a breed of dog, one of many terrier breeds.

It is a fox terrier, and although it bears a resemblance to the smooth fox terrier, they are believed to have been developed separately.

The Wire Fox Terrier is a sturdy, balanced dog weighing 7.7 to 8.6 kg (17 to 19 lb) for males and 6.8 to 7.7 kg (15 to 17 lb) for females. It should not be more than 39 cm (15 1โ„2 in) at the withers.

Its rough, broken coat is distinctive. Coat color consists of a predominant white base with brown markings of the face and ears, and usually a black saddle or large splotch of color; there may be other black or brown markings on the body.

Two of the wire fox terrier's most distinctive traits are its energy and intelligence. It is a companion animal and has a low threshold for boredom, requiring stimulation, exercise and near-constant attention.

The wire fox terrier was developed in England by fox hunting enthusiasts and is believed to be descended from a now-extinct rough-coated, black-and-tan working terrier of Wales, Derbyshire and Durham.

Noteworthy wire fox terriers include:
*Asta in 'The Thin Man' films
*George in the film 'Bringing Up Baby'
*Bob in the 'Poirot' episode 'Dumb Witness'
*Scruffy in 'The Ghost and Mrs. Muir' television series
*Snowy (French: Milou), companion of Tintin
*Caesar, King Edward VII's dog
*Polly, Charles Darwin's dog
*Vicki, Rudyard Kipling's dog
*Wessex, Thomas Hardy's dog
*Marcella, Paul Meltsner's dog - featured Van Gogh's painting 'Paul, Marcella and Van Gogh'.
