About the Coat Type
The tight wire coat type has the same structure of topcoat as the broken coat type, but it is accompanied by more undercoat as well as increased length and density. When the coat is short, a coat growth direction is visible, but when the coat is long, the coat growth direction becomes less clear. There is no visible coat growth pattern, whether the coat is short or long, and if a coat growth pattern is visible on a breed with a tight wire coat type such as the Wire Fox Terrier, it has been created by trimming. This coat type is considered determined, with an even coat growth all over the body. The density and restricted length of the undercoat and the closed appearance of the topcoat set this coat type apart from the broken and scruffy wire coat type.
