Additional Information: 

Originating in England in the mid-18th Century, Wire Fox Terriers were bred to chase small game, including foxes, from their dens. Except for its wiry coat, the Wire Fox Terrier is nearly identical to the Smooth Fox Terrier.

This button is part of a larger set of 35 buttons, each with an illustration of a different dog breed. They were originally sold on a 6” x 9” cardboard sheet.
