Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier

Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier


Height: 17-19 inches

Weight: 30-40 lbs.

Life Span: 13-15 yrs.

Breed Group: Terriers

Overview
The most sedate of the terriers, the soft-coated wheaten makes a first-rate companion with its happy, steady personality. Wheatens are wonderful, playful family dogs that can adapt to city or suburban living as long as they are exercised daily and given the human companionship they need.

They are eager to please and do well in obedience training. They love children who treat them gently, get along with other animals, and are generally friendly with strangers. They may bark as an alarm, but unlike other terriers, the wheaten is not yappy.

Appearance
The wheaten's soft, single, golden coat is more abundant than the coats of other terriers. Pups may be black at birth and young dogs display black tipping up to one year of age.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
The wheaten should be brushed and combed daily and trimmed every three months. It is an energetic breed and requires long, brisk daily walks and romps and playtime with its family in a safe, secured area.

Origins
The soft-coated wheaten terrier originated over 200 years ago in Ireland, where it was used as an all-purpose worker, guarding, droving, herding, and hunting.

Special Alerts
It is especially important to obtain a soft-coated wheaten terrier from a reputable breeder.

Breed-related health concerns: progressive retinal atrophy, congenital kidney problems, allergies.
