Toby weighing up the odds

 

My name is Stephen and welcome to Delwires website, I have been involved with Wire Haired Fox Terriers all my life literally as on the day I was born my father bought me my first ever Wire Haired Fox Terrier called “Nellie”. “Nellie” was 14yrs of age when she died but those years where full of fun and friendship and in her memory  I have added a couple pages about her and some of her antic’s, so take sometime and read some stories of her fun adventures.
After owning a WHFT for over 60yrs, the first thing I would say to anyone who has never owned a Fox Terrier but is interested in owning one, is to read everything you can on the breed and even more so about it’s quirks.
They are super, funny, loving, loyal, intelligent & ignorant in equal measure but once you have owned one you won’t want any other breed. A little bit more about Fox Terriers, there are two types of the breed, the Wire and the Smooth haired some people like to describe them as two different breeds, this is not true! I have had and bred both and they are inseparable in regard to temperament, tenacity and that quintessential aloofness that only a Fox Terrier can deliver with such poise. The breed is on the small side of medium and has a wonderful loving temperament, they love exercise this doesn’t have to be excessive but it is important that whatever you do with a Fox Terrier it must be consistent as they love routine. People say that Fox Terriers don’t moult this is not strictly true as they shed their coat constantly but light grooming will prevent any problems, their coats or fur does not appear to irritate people with allergies to dogs, much like poodles.They are always at the centre of any social circle where everywhere they go, much like all our dogs, Gregarious, out going, fun loving socialites, home breed, well socialised and stuffed to the brim with love and fun! you will  never be alone when have a Fox terrier with you!

About us and our Dogs

We are a family dedicated to the dogs we keep and the puppies we breed, We live in a village situated on the boarders of Staffordshire and Shropshire and our dogs benefit from an abundance of country paths and open spaces.

The dogs are exercised on a regular  basis and they accompany us on most of our walks to the village shops and Paddy especially enjoys the occasional walk to the pub, where he meets up with lots of people and other dogs in the dog friendly bar of The George and Dragon!

“Paddy”  is an excellent Wire Haired Fox Terrier, with superb bloodlines, counting many UK and International Champions in them, he has 28 UK and International Champions in his first 5 generations alone, whilst still only scoring 7.1 in the Kennel Clubs inbreed coefficient, which makes him excellent for breeding.

He is a wonderfully well balanced and tempered example of his breed and he lives as a much loved family pet with our other dogs, he loves children, just ask my 3.5 year old grandson they are inseparable, he has a gentle nature with other animals and he is regarded as one of the Village characters.

Paddy, really has an everyone’s my friend attitude to life, with a natural sense of humor which people adore him for.

We have two brood bitch’s, “Autograph Rose at Delwires” and “Glymore Trixie at Delwires” both beautiful examples of the breed and our retired bitch “Delwires Fiery Fern” who again is a brilliant dog she has the poise of movement that when you see her walking it look’s as if she is taking you for a walk, her puppies have been tremendous and we keep in close contact with all our puppies owners and we are always happy to receive emails, photos and visits from them.

“Fern” came to us when she was just under 12months old and she had a number of issues created by her previous owner but with love and care these have pretty much vanished, she like all our dogs is a people person who loves fuss in great measure and is known to give you a couple of tap’s with her paw if you are not fussing and stroking enough.

I woud highly recommend Delwires Wire haired Fox Terriers and Stephen Delaney. We tragically lost our WHFT in early March due to health problems, I researched extensively because I wanted reasons to why my beloved Tess died at only 9 years old, the same name kept coming up, Stephen Delaney, I contacted Stephen and told him what had happened, Stephen gave me some excellent advice and invited my wife and I to a Delwire walk, although hesitant of attending without a dog, we went to what turned out to be a memorial walk for Stephen's retired stud dog Paddy Power, the respect everyone had for Stephen was humbling, I walked the 3 miles back with Stephen, listening intently to his wisdom and love of the breed, my wife and I decided there and then that we needed another WHFT in our life. Stephen put us in contact with Anne and Bryan whose dog Nancy had recently had a litter, we went and met Anne and Bryan the same day and selected our little girl puppy Cassie, she was 2 weeks old, Anne and Bryan invited us to see Cassie whenever we wanted to, they were absolutely fantastic to us, over the following 6 weeks we wnt to see Cassie as often as we could and Anne and Bryan were brilliant, sending pictures and videos and telling us about Cassie's personality and mischief, they just couldn't do enough for us. We are now the owners of the most fantastic, beautiful, intelligent, mischievious and most important healthy puppy we coudn't be prouder, so a big thank you from us to Stephen Delaney and Delwires Wire Haired Fox Terriers and also to Anne and Bryan.read more

Choosing the dog for you can be a hard one. But then finding a good breeder can be impossible. I count myself very lucky to have fallen for such a wonderful breed and a breeder whose whole ethos is around breeding the best, healthy dogs with little or no inbreeding. I’ve enjoyed all communication with Stephen who is so passionate about these dogs. We collected our little Milo on Saturday bred from Camiro. What a feisty little man we have. Beautiful markings, happy and best of all healthy! Charles the breeder and owner of the mum, Etty, was just as fab and passionate about these dogs. I cannot wait for this little one to grow up! And I will never buy elsewhere again! Thank you Stephen, Charles and all at Delwires for the fantastic work you are doing to keep this wonderful breed pure. I cannot wait to meet more at the next Delwires Walk. 🐾💗🐾read more

Once we had decided on the breed of dog we wanted we asked for recommendations for a breeder. There was so many people saying Stephan Delaney at delwires we decided to make contact with him. From the very start we new we had found someone with a lifetime of knowledge and love and welfare of the breed. Now we have our very own wft named Bonnie. Can highly recommend Delwires for all things foxy.read more

An excellent way for anyone new to raising or owning wire fox terriers to gain valuable information and tips on the breed from someone who has an extraordinary level of knowledge of the breed. Also the oppprtunity to share and view the antics these little rascals get up to. It is also an opportunity to meet other whft owners at specially arranged walks and meets. Well I have finally managed to acquire my Delwire puppy - Rasputin’s Revenge aka Razza. Thanks to Stephen Delaney for providing me with a well socialised and happy puppy, with a zero breeding co-efficient. I have only just taken possession of Razza, who is certainly well balanced. He slept in this morning until 7.45 am with no sign of any sort of distress, amazing since it was his first night away from his mum. He has taken to the puppy pads straight away and even managed to toilet outside. A truly amazing dog, which speaks volumes of how he has been home reared. He is so laid back, even the clay pigeon shoot in a nearby field didn’t phase him. He is an excellent example of how a fox terrier puppy should be, a credit to Stephen and a reward for all the obvious hard work he has put in to producing such a wonderful dog. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Stephen Delaney to anyone who may be looking for a WHFT puppy. Cheers Stephen.read more

We started our search for Stanley by contacting Stephen as we had a friend who had a gorgeous dog from him. Immediately I was struck not only by his knowledge of the breed, but with his obvious passion and love for the dogs and the pups he bred. He was very thorough in checking our expectations versus what the breed's characteristics are and once we had been on one of his organised walks, we were convinced that Stephen's dogs were the ones for us. He kept in constant contact during the waiting period and was excellent in reviewing litters and availability. I also have no qualms asking for information now Stanley is here and growing (rapidly). In summary, our family owes a debt of gratitude to Mr Delaney as we have a gorgeous, funny and totally loyal dog. Cannot recommend him and his dog's highly enoughread more

Stephen I would like to thank you for making our family complete again! We are very happy with our new family member, Ginny fits in perfectly. I feel privileged to have such a wonderful dog and now be part of Delwires. The whole experience for us was brilliant, we watched the litter grow and had daily updates whether it be videos or pictures. I also know that I could ring Stephen or Debbie anytime for advice! What more could we ask for? I would recommend Delwires to anyone, not only will you get a beautiful puppy with fantastic breeding and from a loving home but you will also have a lifetime of support. Thank you again Stephen for putting your trust in us to have one of these amazing dogs, I personally will be forever grateful �read more

When we were informed we were to have a Delwires puppy we were very excited. These pups are much sought after due to the many years of careful breeding and therefore very low inbreed coefficient of every litter. We were invited to meet the litter on several occasions , also mum, the beautiful Amber and Sire Camiro, a magnificent dog. Stephen and Sylvia made us most welcome on each occasion and we were given as much expert advice and information we could ask for, Stephen's knowledge of this breed is second to none and his support continues after he hands over his puppy, we know if we have a query he will have the answer. We have had our puppy, one of the BA Crew for 3 weeks now and he slept through the night from the very start with no problems. He is such a funny, intelligent, inquisitive and lovable little boy, tearing around causing havoc one minute and then climbing onto your lap for a sleep. He obviously thinks he's right about everything (when he can be quite vocal) but understands the command "no" which I think must have been taught by Stephen from an early age. We are now looking forward to being able to take him out to meet other dogs and we're sure he'll continue to be just as friendly. Thank you Stephen and all at Delwires for all your very hard work and dedication, we feel privileged to be the owners of a Delwires Wire Haired Fox Terrier.read more

I shan't go into every single reason to why I would highly recommend Stephen and Delwires because I'd run out of plaudits. Initially talking to Stephen on the phone to gain information on the breed to meeting him on a delwires walk prior to my purchase, I was struck by the knowledge and professionalism of the man. Every person who turned up on that walk had a warm welcome, and as I was stood with him, every dog that disembarked from a vehicle, he knew by name and their bloodline. Needless to say I bought my beautiful puppy Luna, and I couldn't be happier with the process from start to finish. Summing up. And old-school guy who knows his stuff and more importantly cares.

After a long wait we have our puppy Tilly! What can I say she has changed our life! Wherever we go we get stopped which Tilly loves as she laps up all the attention. Stephen is alway there on the end of the phone to help with any question we have. Yes we could of brought a WHFT from somewhere else but I do feel reassured that our puppy has come from the good healthy line of Delwire's which Stephen is so passionate about! We are part of the Delwire family now and look forward to meeting other members in December when Tilly is a little older.read more

After a lot of research of breeders, we got in touch with Stephen and from then on we knew we were going to go with Delwires. Stephen's knowledge is second to none and he explained everything we needed to know about the WHFT breed. Stephen uses his knowledge to bring very healthy pups into the world and prides himself on the low inbreeding coefficient he achieves. Because you are getting a very healthy pedigree dog there is a wait but Stephen keeps you updated through every step until your puppy is born, where you then get regular updates on their development. In a nutshell, I am glad I got in touch with Stephen as I am now sat with the most gorgeous puppy who is going to be my best friend for many years and it is lovely to know I am now part of the Delwires family.read more

I always said if ever i was lucky enough to have another dog, i would love to have a WHFT in our lives, but didn't know how to go about it,so decided to go on line and do some research.The name Stephen Delaney kept popping up and i'm so grateful that it did. From our first telephone conversation, to meeting Stephen and walking his beautiful dogs Amber and Camiro, then later meeting and playing with the gorgeous paddy Power,we knew we were on the right track!!.Stephens dedication,knowledge and love of this breed is simply amazing.This beautiful Delwires puppy we call Dylan has just come into our lives and are we blessed, he is from the Brighton Boys Club, born to Imogen and Camiro and cannot begin to thank Teresa and Simon and of course Imi and Hattie for all the love and care for these very special puppy dogs!!

How lucky are we and to be part of this lovely family called Delwires, so looking forward to meeting up for walks.Feeling very blessed,thank you.Dylan was meant to be....Love Nick & Cherry xxxread more

We wanted a dog to bring into our family home, with young children. We chose delwires, after much searching, as their puppies are reared in family homes. We met Stephen and his dogs (of who Camiro is the dad of our puppy- Peggy) were really happy with the situation and paid our deposit. We found out that week we had a girl puppy allocated to us from a litter nearer to our home. We met with Jo and Dan the owners of our puppy's mum and first saw Peggy when she was 4 weeks old. It was obvious in that meeting she was being brought up in a lovely family home, being handled by children. At 8 weeks we brought Peggy home. She was insured, vaccinated, and microchipped. I can honestly say it's been easier than I thought. I really believe this is because she was reared in a family home with experienced breeders. She's fit into our family really well, and my boys adore her. I haven't had to contact Stephen for help (as yet) but know I can should I need to. The Facebook page is great to see them all growing up. You really do feel part of a community. I'd highly recommend Delwires.read more

I can't possible begin to say how wonderful my experience has been with Stephen and the process of getting my lovely Delwire puppy. Stephen is amazingly helpful and always seems to have time and energy to help with any question. Most importantly, Stephen is passionate about providing the best quality dogs in all aspects, health, temperament and they are most certainly some of the most perfect looking Wire Fox Terrier puppies I've ever seen. My puppy has an amazing temperament, has already proven himself to be good with people of all shapes and sizes (even the little ones), and has coped amazingly with his long journey to Aberdeen. He has even managed to cope with an anxious first time dog owner and within three days of coming home, is very nearly house trained and has already learnt to sit on command! Thanks again Stephen and family for helping me to finally realise a dream, 19 years in the making.read more

We recently got our little pup Hooper from Delwires and can thoroughly endorse them. Stephen Delaney was excellent at advising us from the start of our journey to getting our first dog. His love and knowledge of the breed is outstanding and his enthusiasm amazing. We met the handsome Camiro, Hooper's dad , and then were put in touch with Debbie Wattley the owner of the gorgeous Roxie, Hooper's mum. And what a great mum she is. We cannot thank Debbie, Kevin & the girls enough for the magnificent job they did in raising Hooper and his sister and brothers for the first 8 weeks of their little lives. The experience was fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience as did the pups.Debbie daily sent videos and pictures of the pups via WhatsApp and FB so we saw the progress they were making, which at the early stage they change very quickly. All the pups were healthy and lively. Thank you all again. What is great about being part of the Delwires community is during the first few weeks especially,we know that Stephen is there whenever we have any questions, he has seen and experienced most things with the breed and is happy to pass on his knowledge and guidance for which we are very grateful. You are also part of a bigger group of WHFT owners who also can share their experiences. We look forward to meeting up with others on future Delwires get together walks. Yvonne and Fionaread more

I wanted to write a review about Delwires - more importantly, Stephen. Of course my Poppy is a Delwire pup herself and she met Camero professionally when she was around 2 years old. (This was my first experience of doggie breeding.) I have only ever had fox terriers, one smooth (bitch) and two wire (both bitches). The night before the birth I slept on the floor in the kitchen beside her 'safe place' and at 07.45 I heard the first pup arrive and within 2 ticks I was on the phone to Stephen - he was calmness himself of course and I was just stairing at the wonderment of it all! I did help a little and was thrilled that the first born was a bitch (Daisy). After that every 20 minutes another was born until the 4th - and eventually got a coffee between 4th and 5th pup. Daisy, Hector, Hector, Hettie and Asta. Stephen was on the phone ensuring that everything was in order (but I was frazzled). I had to write down the markings so I could remember the order they were born and of course, sex them! Well I have never seen puppy bits and was unsure of the sexs because I didn't realise that boy bits were soooo close to cord and lady bits were soooo large on little puppies! Well I know now! But three little girls - that too was a huge surprise. Stephen is a true professional. He tells it as it is and is ALWAYS on hand to help in any way he can. He KNOWS fox terriers. Do not hesitate to ask anything you need of Stephen regarding a Foxie. If you buy from a Foxie bred from his doggies - you will get a tip top doggie and the co-efficiency of your pup will be the very best achievable, to be assured of the most healthy of puppies. Delwires is the only place for fox terriersread more

We love Delwires. From the moment we read about the loving, family home-based ethos and met Steve, who is so experienced and knowledgable about the breed, the approach just felt right. It leads to beautiful, healthy, happy and well-adjusted puppies. We were able to name our pup, Genevieve, as soon as she was born and then visit her several times in her first 8 weeks. We looked forward to every visit. By the time of our second visit she was coming to her name which Steve has been using from the off. Now we have picked up our little bundle of fun and joy and we couldn't be happier. We have been incredibly impressed with Delwires and the whole process has been great from start to finish. We feel very reassured to have Steve available to dispense advice at the end of the phone if needed, and we really look forward to staying in touch with the wider Delwires family in the future through the Delwires WHFT walks - great fun, good company and all those WHFTs together are quite a sight! Thanks for everything and all the best Steve. Mark and the girls.read more

Going through the process of buying a puppy with Delwires has been one we’ll treasure forever. From the initial call and visit Stephen took the time to talk to us about the breed and introduced us to his lovely crew. When we decided to go ahead Stephen updated us every step of the way, from conception to birth and beyond. We have not found another breeder who cares as much as Stephen. Stephen is willing to share with you his time and knowledge with no expectation but should you be lucky enough to come away with a puppy from this wonderful breeder you will also come away with a friend and a whole community of support.read more

We have now had Gertie coming up for a couple of weeks and she is shaping up to be a great dog.

When we finally decided we were going to have a WHFT (started thinking about it 30yrs ago!!) we thoroughly researched the subject. I have no doubts whatsoever that there are some very good and responsible breeders out there, but the more we read, the more we were convinced that Dewires was the way to go. I can't thank Stephen Delaney enough for all the advice and support we have received leading up to bringing Toby home, and I'm certain it won't stop there. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Delwires to anyone, and hope you are as fortunate as we are to have 2 totally devoted breeders in Stephen Delaney and Adam Davis (Lily's owner)to call upon for advice. Keep up the superb work!!read more

I've enjoyed watching and looking at your site for awhile. I currently live in my city centre flat. When I buy a new house that will have a suitable garden I'd love for some support in buying a new puppy or even two. We cannot wait! Keep up the good work 😉read more

And now I have one of Paddy's puppies...... at last - finally a companion for my beloved Pippin, my 5 year old FT.read more

We didn't just just come, hand over money and leave, it was a long process and along with our wonderful Granville Claude we have made firm friends with lovely lovely old school decent people who ,like us, look on their dogs as family. And that's just what it is, a lovely extended family of Wires and their owners. I look on Stafford as my new get away from it all destination!read more

March 2013 I gave Delwires (Stephen Delaney) a call with an interest of owning a Wire Fox Terrier. I have always had terriers, including current family pet Rosie (Welsh Terrier) so had a good understanding as to what the breed was all about. From the first call to Stephen he was fantastic, i must have been on the phone to him for over 30 minutes! I realised immediately his passion and love for this breed. His Ethos of only producing Fox Terriers with a low coefficient score which results in the healthiest family pet you will ever own! July 2014 after some wait, lots of visits including Delwires walks we finally collect Eddie, which we were fortunate to come from Paddy and Trixie well worth the wait! Eddie is now almost 13 weeks fully house trained, walks off his lead, comes when called and sits when told, absolutely incredible! Without doubt the most stunning, loyal and healthiest dog i have ever owned. A real true testimony as to what Stephen and Delwires are all about. Look forward to many Delwires walks in the near future...read more
