Colors

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

Coat

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.

Problemas de Salud

Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers are generally a long-lived breed.They are susceptible to various heritable diseases, although are most known for two protein wasting conditions: protein-losing nephropathy (PLN), where the dogs lose protein via the kidneys; and protein-losing enteropathy (PLE), where the dogs fail to fully absorb protein in their digestive tracts, causing it to pass in their stool.  To minimize the risk of your dog developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a puppy from a reputable breeder.

Condiciones de Vida

The Wheaten is ideal for those living in an apartment, as it is able to obtain a good amount of exercise indoors or in a small yard. This breed, however, doesn’t respond well to heat. Though it can survive outdoors in moderate climates, life indoors (possibly with air conditioning) is most suitable.
