Wheaten Terrier

The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is a Native Of Ireland.

Breed History

The actual origin of the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier cannot be found in printed record. Recurring reference to a terrier soft in coat, wheaten in color, and of a size to fit the Wheaten of today, lends credence to the belief that the history of the Soft Coated Wheaten began long before records were kept and when the challenge of "best dog" was most often settled in a "fists up" confrontation between the owners. Of necessity these early dogs were bred for their working qualities, with shade of coat or exact measurements of small consideration and no record.
