When I was five we got a Wired Hair Fox Terrier, just like this one. His name was Mickey and from then on began my love of dogs!
ah, it's lovely when a photo brings back a sweet memory :)
Nothing like a portrait with your best friend! I beleive that is a wire hair terrior...I had one of these growing up...Fluffy!
I don't know much about dogs. I would call this Tintin's dog.
now you mention it, there is a Tintin look to this picture, maybe the shadows add to that impression.
