2012 our first Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier was imported from New Zealand for showing purposes, and for our foundation to future breeding, from genetic & conformational sound bloodlines.
The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, or simplified, the Wheaten originated in Ireland and is possibly one of the oldest Irish breeds.
They are related to both Kerry Blue & Irish Terriers. They were known as the "poor man's dog" working on farms as herders, protecting the border and as hunters of vermin & small game.
The Wheaten is strong, agile, well-coordinated, playful, spirited, alert, happy & friendly. Usually very loving with children and get along well with other dogs. They have a puppy attitude that remains throughout their life, with a sweet-tempered, docile and self-confident attitude, and are very intelligent, so will generally grasp quickly what is required of them. Wheatens have a straight-forward nature and need to be handled in a straight-forward manner. Wheaten bond closely with their family and seldom bark unnecessarily.
Wheatens have a glorious silken, wavy coat of varying Wheat colour which is in full bloom once reaching maturity, and is a 100% 'non-shedding' coat type.
