Welcome to Jelson’s Wire Fox Terriers (JWFT). We are Mike and Donna Johnson and have been showing and breeding Wires since 1986. Currently, we live with six Wires in our home in Fargo, North Dakota. Our dogs are well socialized and are well-rounded members of society. JWFT also actively shows in conformation, obedience, agility and Earthdog events. Visit “Our Wires” to get to know our dogs and their accomplishments.

Breeding Goals

We breed with emphasis on temperament, conformation, and health — to be enjoyed by the Wire enthusiast whether for conformation, obedience, agility, or as a family companion. The goal at JWFTs is to only produce high-quality Wires that are structurally correct with excellent movement and wonderful temperaments. We never breed specifically for a sale.
