These playful, intelligent dogs have the energy to keep up with a large family and are always excited to try new things. They are often calmer and easier to manage than other terrier breeds, allowing them to adapt to many different kinds of living situations.
Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers are fairly adaptable dogs that can be comfortable living in smaller spaces. They do best when they are allowed to live indoors, close to their family.
Although Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers have a long, luxurious coat, a lack of undercoat means that they do not shed as much as you might expect.
Wheaten puppies are born a dark brown and lighten to a shade of wheat by the time they are two. It’s one of the things that makes the puppies just too cute!
While all Wheatens may look the same to the those not familiar with the breed, Wheatens come in two coat types: “heavy” and “Irish.”
