Family-Friendly Wire-Haired Dog Breeds to Consider 

These working dogs may have attractive crinkly coats and unique traits like bushy eyebrows, beards, and mustaches,  

but they weren't originally bred for show; rather, they hunted larger animals like rodents. 

They were actually better able to withstand the branches and thorns they faced while pursuing 

their prey through the underbrush because of their wiry coats, as stated by the American Kennel Club (AKC).
