Appearance

The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is a medium-sized, compact and squarely proportioned dog. It is a
strong dog that moves gracefully. The head is shaped like a rectangle, rather long, with a short, strong
muzzle, jaws that are able to seize and grip prey well, and large teeth. It has a defined stop. The ears are
v-shaped and fold forward, level with the skull. The teeth should form a scissors or level bite. The
almond-shaped eyes are hazel or dark brown. Light or yellow eye color can occur but is a breed fault in
the written standard. The nose is large and black.

Temperament

The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is an alert and happy animal - graceful, strong and well-coordinated. A
playful and friendly terrier. They make great watch dogs and bark at the arrival of guests. They are
usually very loving with children and get along reasonably well with other dogs (provided they are
socialized when they are young). They should be socialized at a young age to get along with cats.

History

The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier was used as a farm dog, herder, and hunter of small game and
vermin in Ireland, which is his country of origin. Though it is probably one of the oldest Irish breeds, its
first public presentation was in 1933. The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier was first imported to the United
States in 1946 and officially recognized by the AKC in 1973.
