Formed 22 January 1913

Founded in 1913, this is the only association in the United Kingdom solely dedicated to the Wire Fox Terrier.

Our aim is to bring together like minded people who have a love for the breed, whether that be through our events, education, welfare or health initiatives.

Be part of the Wire Fox Terrier Association.

I would like to wish all members health, happiness and good luck in the future with your dogs and hope that we can all celebrate together the breed that has brought us here in the first place... The Wire Fox Terrier!
— Bill Browne-Cole, Chairman
