THE MODERN WIRE HAIRED FOX TERRIER - ITS HISTORY, POINTS & TRAINING BY LEONARD E. NAYLOR A VINTAGE DOG BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT. Originally published in 1933, this extremely rare early work on the Wire Haired Fox Terrier is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS have republished it, using the original text and photographs, as part of their CLASSIC BREED BOOKS series. The author was a highly respected breeder of the day. The book's 144 pages cover all aspects of the Wire Haired Fox Terrier. Begining with the history of the breed, it moves on to discuss buying, breeding, feeding and showing amongst many other topics. There is a "Standard description of the correct appearance and scale of points" and a number of excellent photos of famous dogs of the day. This is a fascinating read for any Wire enthusiast or historian of the breed but also contains much information that is still useful and practical today. Many of the earliest dog breed books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. VINTAGE DOG BOOKS are reprinting these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. CHAPTERS INCLUDE: - I. - THE HISTORY AND EVOLUTION OF THE BREED - II. - THE "WIRE'S" POPULARITY - III. - SOME FAMOUS WIRE STRAINS, ANCIENT AND MODERN - IV. - CHOOSING A WIRE - V. - TRAINING THE WIRE - VI. - STANDARD DESCRIPTION AND SCALE OF POINTS - VIII. - PREPARATION FOR SHOW; AND SHOWING - VIIII. - THE BREEDING OF WIRES AND REARING OF PUPPIES - IX. - HINTS ON FEEDING - X. - HOW TO START A KENNEL -

Modern for 1933 Dec 26, 2005
It may be titled The Modern Wire Fox Terrier, but it was originally printed in 1933 London. Pictures are few, black and white and grainy. These are pix of dogs from that era. Info is great for background and history.
