Fox Terrier

There are two main breeds of Fox Terrier, Smooth and Wire, both of which originated in England. In addition, there are several descendant breeds which have been developed in a variety of countries.

The Wire and Smooth Fox Terriers share similar characteristics, the main differences being in the coat and markings.

There is a figure of Caesar, King Edward VII's  favorite dog, a Wire Fox Terrier at his tomb at Windsor Castle. He wasn't the favorite of visiting ambassadors mainly because he used to mistake their legs for lampposts. The faithful Caesar led the funeral coterage when the king died.

Igloo, a Wire Fox Terrier travelled everywhere with the explorer Admiral Byrd in the 1920s, including flying over both the North and South Poles.
