Wire and Smooth Haired: A Tale of Two Personalities
While some may claim the Wire and Smooth Haired Fox Terriers are distinct breeds, the truth is quite the opposite. I’ve raised and cherished both, and I can attest to their inseparable nature when it comes to temperament, tenacity, and that unique aloofness that only a Fox Terrier can gracefully exude.
A Compact Size with a Heart Full of Love
These small to medium-sized dogs boast a delightful, loving temperament. They relish exercise, though it need not be excessive. What they truly adore is a consistent routine, which brings them a sense of security and contentment.
The Myth of the Non-Shedding Fox Terrier
Contrary to popular belief, Fox Terriers do shed, but it’s a manageable affair with light grooming. Notably, their fur is less likely to trigger allergies in people sensitive to dog hair, akin to poodles.
Life with a Fox Terrier: A Never-Ending Party
Fox Terriers thrive at the center of any social gathering, embodying gregariousness, outgoing spirit, and a love for fun. These well-bred, socialized companions will fill your life with boundless love and everlasting joy. You’ll never feel alone with a Fox Terrier by your side!

Breeding for a low coefficient of inbreeding, also known as COI, involves choosing two dogs that are not closely related genetically. This can be achieved by carefully considering the pedigree of each dog and selecting breeding pairs that have the lowest possible COI.
The COI measures how related two dogs are in a given pedigree. The pedigree is a record of a dog’s ancestors, and the COI is calculated by examining how many common ancestors the two dogs share. The higher the COI, the more closely related the two dogs are, and the greater the risk of inherited health problems.
Breeding for a low COI involves identifying dogs with different pedigrees and breeding them together. This means avoiding breeding dogs that are closely related, such as siblings or parent and offspring. Instead, breeders may choose dogs from different lines, so that their pedigrees only overlap slightly.
By breeding for a low COI, breeders can help to reduce the risk of inherited health problems and improve the overall health of the breed. However, it is important to remember that other factors, such as temperament and conformation, should also be considered when selecting breeding pairs.

No mating will be allowed if any potential mating results with puppies which would have an inbred coefficient of above 5%. This decision is based upon 20 years of research carried out by The Institute of Canine Biology on all pedigree breeds. They stated that for the Wire Haired Fox Terrier to have a sustainable healthy population moving into the future, they should never be bred with an Inbred Coefficient above 8%.
