Characteristics of the Wire Haired Fox terrier
The Wire Fox Terrier is unsentimental, faithful to its marrow, and the marrow of any bones they can find. They dig holes where they shouldn't. They're incorrigible when they should be 'behaving properly' - afternoon tea in the garden is not their cup of tea but the rabbit in the garden shed is. They don't suffer fools lightly. Although they are a wonderful family pet and love children (and children's toys), they are not for the human who likes a subservient, cuddly sort of animal. They would be in seventh heaven on the back seat of your car with the back window open, head out in the wind, 'Metallica' beating full blast from the speakers.
