Jess : Wire Fox Terrier from Yorkshire

Wire hair fox terriers have a crisp double coat.
The smooth fox terrier and the wire fox terrier were both breeds that originated in the 19th century. The terrier of this period was short of leg, chunky and bred for their ability to drive a fox out of its den. As the hunt pace became faster they were bred with longer legs, but that meant that they could no longer fit down fox holes and their purposeful breeding for use in fox hunting began to decline.
Jess's bark is loud. She enjoys less of a hunting life, more lap leisure and treats.
