Wire Poxer Breed Maintenance
Wire Poxers are a fairly low-maintenance breed with short, wiry fur that sheds very minimally. Due to the nature of its hair, the Wire Poxer should be brushed once a week to keep his coat healthy and shiny. Bathing and shampooing should occur once a month or when needed. Too frequent bathing can leave a Terrier’s skin dry and itchy, so daily brushing can help keep the animal’s fur looking decent between washes. Check your Wire Poxer’s ears weekly for any signs of infection, as an abundance of yeast build-up can cause irritation in your pup’s sensitive ears. If you notice your dog shaking or scratching at his head, or if the inner ear is unusually red, seek assistance from a veterinarian right away.
