Companion for Wired hair fox terrier
Hi

I would like to find out what type of dog/pet I can buy as companion for my wired hair fox terrier? She is about 4 months old and I have no other pets. I have read that they are not very good with other pets as they will fight with other dogs (even big dogs) and with smaller pets (and I quote) "will hunt them down and kill them". Is this true? She has socialised with other dogs and there were no problems. Can you please give me advice? Also, should it be male?

Thank you!

Not necessarily a male but a neutered animal. A small crossbreed will probaly be a good companion. Introduce them slowly.
