The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is medium-sized, compact and squarely proportioned. It is a strong dog that moves gracefully. This breed was used as a farm dog, herder, and hunter of small game and vermin. It is a playful and friendly terrier.


Puppies are born black, but lighten to the final adult wheaten color by about two years of age.


The coat is abundant, medium-long and falling in waves. Brushing can make the soft coat fuzzy, so using a brush is not recommended. Instead, frequent, even daily combing of the long, profuse coat with a medium-toothed comb is recommended to keep it free of tangles, beginning when the dog is a puppy. This breed does not shed in the spring and fall, but loose hair should be combed out of the coat from time to time. A well-groomed dog will shed very little. This breed is good for allergy suffers.

Health Issues:

Prone to flea allergies and protein wasting disease (PLE and PLN). To minimize the risk of your dog developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a puppy from a reputable breeder.
