In my opinion, wire-haired fox terriers as they are more elegant, than their sleek-haired relatives are more exhibition dogs. For example, they more often than sleek-haired fox terriers, win "besta" (Титуë Best in show“ — "The best dog of an exhibition " — an editor's note ). Thanks to it the breed for a long time gets divorced not for hunting, namely for a show. It could not but affect character and behavior of dogs.

Therefore with it it is not interesting to aggressive dogs. When the aggressor departs, Homs is right there developed and runs to it: a class, it was cheerful, let's play still! After the third unsuccessful attempt to eat it, all begin to be played.
of Homs — the convinced pacifist. I don't even know how it can be provoked to aggression.
