Description

The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is a medium-sized, hardy, well balanced sporting terrier, square in outline. He is distinguished by his soft, silky, gently waving coat of warm wheaten color and his particularly steady disposition. The breed requires moderation both in structure and presentation, and any exaggerations are to be shunned. He should present the overall appearance of an alert and happy animal, graceful, strong and well coordinated.

Temperament

The Wheaten is a happy, steady dog and shows himself gaily with an air of self-confidence. They playful and alert and exhibit interest in their surroundings.

Origin

The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier was used as a herder, hunter of small game and vermin and farm dog in Ireland. Ireland is the Wheaten's country of origin. Though they are one of the oldest Irish breeds, its first public presentation wasn't until 1933.
