 Dogs - Fox Terrier, wire coat

The Fox Terrier, both smooth and wire-haired, originates in UK. The smooth-haired is an older breed than the wire haired. Francis Redmond, a breeder, set the standard in 1876. Fox terriers were bred to hunt fox and badger. This compact dog can get into the burrows and hiding holes of other animals and chase them out. Terrier comes from the Latin "terra" or earth. They are good at digging vermin out of the earth. Read the origins of dog breeds.

About fox terriers

Today the Foxie makes a loyal, devoted companion and defender of the family. Being small, the dog will be happy in a small garden, but would enjoy long walks. Fox terriers have a hunting instinct and can be aggressive towards other dogs. It's not advisable to keep lots of fox terriers. One male & one female may get along, but two males will fight for dominance, and two females may fight to kill!

The coat of the smooth fox terrier is short but the wirehaired terrier has a longer, rough coat with a slight beard. In Afrikaans it's called, "steek haar," or "steekhaar."

Hand-stripping helps to maintain the coarse wiry texture of wire-haired dogs. Using clippers tends to ruin the harshness, but of course it's much quicker!

Some breeders cut off the puppies's tails at about a man's hand span, but docking is being outlawed world wide, so many breeders leave their puppies with a natural tail. If you're ordering a puppy, you can ask the breeder not to cut the puppy's tail off.

If only we could be happy and spirited like a dog! As the Bible says, "Be joyful always... give thanks in all circumstances... do not put out the Spirit's fire."  That's from Paul's letter to the Thessalonians chapter 5 verses 16 - 19
