Soft-coated Wheaten terrier
The “Wheaten” has a special connection to St. Patrick’s Day, having first appeared in the show ring at the Irish Kennel Club Championship in 1937. The name of this breed describes the characteristics of the coat—soft, silky, with a gentle wave. Underneath is a formidable dog that enjoys plenty of exercise every day. Most Wheatens are natural greeters and extremely alert in their surroundings. They are quick learners and love to travel with their owners.
