To buy a wire fox terrier, a person should visit the American Kennel Club breeder listings or look for wire fox terrier rescue groups such as the nonprofit rescue group Wire Fox Terriers Midwest. It is also possible to purchase a wire fox terrier at a shelter though it may be more difficult because the shelter does not specialize in one breed of dog.
The wire fox terrier is one part of the fox terrier dog breed with the smooth fox terrier being the other part. The wire fox terrier lives approximately 10 to 15 years and weighs approximately 15 to 19 lbs. These dogs are intelligence, confident and do bark a lot so they are not ideal dogs for multi-pet homes.
