The Wire fox terrier standard
The Wire Fox Terrier is an alert, quick of movement dog. He is said to always be on the tip-toe of expectation at the slightest provocation. His character is imparted by the expression of his eyes and by the carriage of his ears and tail.
A well balanced WFT is a square looking dog that should not exceed 15 inches at the withers and scale around 18 pounds.
The WFT has what is called a broken coat that is dense and wiry in texture.
The coat should be predominantly white, with black and tan markings.
