Default Wired-Hair Terrier? (pics)

We adopted a "wired hair terrier" from a kill shelter 2 months ago. He's a darling boy but we have no idea what breed he is. All the adoption papers say is that he is a "wired-hair terrier. Whenever I try to look up information on wired-hair terriers on search engines, I get results for wired-hair fox terriers. I know he isn't a fox terrier. I have no idea if he's a mixed breed or a purebred. Are there any other types of terriers that have the wire hair besides the fox terrier?

Name: Chester
Breed: Some type of terrier...
weight: 10lbs
coat: double coat

I think that he looks like a Norfolk?

to me he looks a little like a norwich terrier?? X Jack russel. I do see a lot of Jack in him, especially the ears, but might just be me I'm not real up on my terriers.

The "wire haired terrier" label from the shelter is actually just a descriptive term, it doesn't really have much to do with breed.

Fox terriers for example come as smooth and wirehaired, Jack Russell Terriers (or Parson Russell Terriers, as labeled by the AKC now) come in smooth, broken and wire coats.

After looking at the pic of your little cute, my guess is it's a JRT/PRT mix or maybe even a purebred one. I'd have to see more pics though.

SummerRiot, I was thinking that too - my dog's coat looks similar when it isn't stripped.

Here are some pics:
