The Wire Fox Terrier
The Wire Fox Terrier is a small black and white disturbance which afflicts and delights many families. The Wire Fox Terrier has straight legs, an active expressive face, a lean well-shaped head, talkative eyes and a nose which leads it from one misdemeanor to another.
Originally he had a liberal tail, but it has been revised and edited by man. This was done because when a Fox Terrier’s tail was as active as his head, it took two people to watch him.
The Wire Fox Terrier is a house pet and is clean and dainty in his habits. He lives on meat, milk, potatoes, mice, old shoes, curtains, books, hats and tablecloths. In return for this diet, he guards his house with unrelenting ferocity. No burglar can come near without dislodging an eruption of barks from this faithful terrier. He also guards his house against all cats, dogs, taxicabs, late pedestrians, dead leaves and moonbeams which may chance to pass in the night.
The Wire Fox Terrier is vivacious, audacious, ingenious, merciful, hysterical, wheedlesome, companionable, affectionate, optimistic, fickle, restless and irrepressible. He is, in fact, the Chorus Girl of the dog family.
He wants to be a part of anything and everything that’s happening and usually manages to shoulder his way in!
