Wheaten Terriers: These Playful, Versatile Dogs Are a Great Choice
If you never heard of the breed before, don't worry; I hadn't either. But to let you know what they are like, well, of course, like most of the terriers, the Wheaten terrier (often called simply Wheatens) were bred to be hunting dogs.
Because they were bred as hunters, they are very agile (they can certainly get up and down hill's a lot quicker than most of their owners). They are also bright and alert like other Terrier breeds. One thing most owners have notices is that the Wheatens are more balanced than some of the other Terriers, for this reason they were used extensively in Ireland as general purpose farm dogs.
When you see a Wheaten running in open fields you can see clearly they were well suited to working on farms. They are instinctive animals, and are often seen herding cattle and sheep on the green valleys of Ireland. They are equally good for controlling vermin (aroung Poultry farms). They are great companions of fishermen too. Finally they will put off anyone tempted to invade your property.
Let me give you a rundown of the facts that you need to know about Wheatens:
Breed Family: Terrier
Where To Keep Them: Inside (recommended), and if Outside (within a fenced area).
Fur/Coat: Single coat of medium length, silky and soft, wavy
Colors: Black coats that lighten about the age of two when more softer colors of beige and yellow appear.
Height: Wheatens are typically between 30cm and 45 cm approx 15 to 20 inches.
Weight: A Wheaten normally weighs in at somewhere between 12kg to 30kg approx 30 to 45 pounds.
Wheatens are calm, not usually excited (unless they sense threats) so they are quiet. If someone is breaking in they will bark. They tend to match the mood of their owner(s) and home. Its important if you take on a Wheaten, to know they require time and effort, these are dogs that need training, but are great company.
Breeders should be aware that the typical health issues with Wheatens are:
Fleas, Allergies, Addison's disease, Heat stroke, PLN and PLE
As I mentioned before this soft coated terrier originated in Ireland. It is not certain of the exact date of their origin, but they are one of the olders breeds in Ireland. They have been used as farm dogs, or working dogs - so they have a great temperement to herd other animals, they are also capable hunting dogs.
From their origins in Ireland, they have travelled as far a field as America by the year 1946. This lovable dog has become popular both as a pet, but also as an entertaining dog. Though Wheatens have typical hunting instincts, they fit in well as family pets (with proper training and attention). Like all terriers you will find they develop close attachments to their owners.
