This breed is very lovable and cuddly with their family but may have a bit of an attitude with strangers. It is important to socialize them when young so they know how to get along with other dogs. They should also be trained properly and consistently to prevent small dog syndrome and other behavioral issues. It may take more patience than usual to potty train your Wire Foxingese because they are very independent and headstrong so you have to be firm but not aggressive. Some owners will end up using puppy pads or obedience training classes to make training go smoother.
