Personality and Temperament

The Wire Fox Terrier is among the Most Popular Dog Breeds.

This is a higher energy dog that is good with older children and okay with other pets (if socialized early on). They are active and alert dogs that are not afraid to bark.

If this breed is not trained and socialized early on they become very independent and stubborn. With early training they are great dogs that are playful, affectionate and fun to be around. They love to play.
