Appearance
The Soft coated Wheaten Terrier is a medium sized dog, and has a short but sturdy build. He is well proportioned, and has a square shaped head. The coat of the Soft coated Wheaten Terrier is black at birth but gets gradually lighter, and by the time he is two it should be a lovely, wheaten color with a wavy appearance. The coat is soft and silky in texture. The Soft coated Wheaten Terrier is around 17-19 inches in height for females, and 18-19 inches for males. These dogs weigh in at 30-35 pounds for females, and 35-40 pounds for males.
 

Temperament
The Wheaten is a self-confident, happy, inquisitive, and alert dog that is known to be less aggressive in nature than other Terrier breeds. He does enjoy activity, however, and is ready and willing to learn.

He is lively and affectionate and maintains a puppy like attitude most of his life. This is a breed who thrives on human companionship and is considered a family dog in the sense that he is devoted to his entire family rather than an individual. He is also excellent with children with his patient and tolerant nature.

 
History
The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier originated in Ireland more than two centuries ago and was bred as an all-purpose farm dog and family companion. He was known as the poor man's hunting dog and used to kill vermin, as a herding dog, and a watch dog.
 
Health
If you are considering a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances. The SCWTAC recommends that all breeding stock be tested and cleared of any hip and eye disorders. Breeding of any dog should not be done until after they have been proven to be free of evidence of significant hereditary diseases
