As its name implies, the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is prized for its coat, which is soft, silky, with a gentle wave, and of warm wheaten color. Underneath, however, is a formidable dog that leaves no doubt as to his terrier origins. Square and medium-sized, he is happy, steady, self-confident and alert to his surroundings. The Wheaten is also versatile, competing in obedience, agility and earth dog trials.
A Look Back
Known for more than 200 years in Ireland, the "Wheaten" shares common ancestry with the Kerry Blue and the Irish Terrier, but was not owned by the landed gentry. They were the poor man’s dog, an all-purpose farm dog, given to patrolling the borders of small farms, ridding them of vermin, herding sheep and hunting with his master.
Right Breed for You?
Wheatens tend to be less scrappy than other terriers but they are true terriers and will be more active than many other breeds, enjoying plenty of exercise every day. They relate well to children and can adapt to city, country, and suburban life. The Wheaten is single coated and sheds minimally, but needs regular grooming to keep its coat mat free.
The "Momma's" have all there required shots and wormings and also the puppy's will have their first shots w/o Lepto as recommended- as well as all wormings! (see the diagram for Worming / Immunization Record in the "Puppy Contract and Health Guarantee" on our website)
The soft coated wheaten is a very smart dog. They do not bark a lot, are easy to train & are very loving. They enjoy being with people & are excellent dogs for children. They do not shed hair, so they are a good choice for people with allergies. Your wheatie will need regular grooming to keep his hair nice.
When the puppies are born, they are black in color. As they mature, they lighten to the color of ripening wheat.
Linda and I got Khaki 6 weeks ago. Tina Kaven could not have done a better job. We think this little girl is perfect. She is smart, calm, and easily trained. If you are in the market for one of these little friends you could do no better than to purchasing one on Tina's puppies.
