About this Breed

The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is a medium sized dog that is very squarely and solidly built without appearing to be heavy or chunky. The breed is very athletic with a good bone structure through the legs and body providing strength as well as the ability to move quickly through all types of terrain. The legs are relatively long for the size of the dog and well furnished, making them appear a bit larger than they actually are. The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier has a rectangular shaped head when viewed from almost any direction. The muzzle is shorter and very strong looking and covered by longer hair or slight bearding that makes the muzzle appear wider. The nose is black and rather large, covering the end of the muzzle. There is a definite stop between the muzzle and the eyes, and the eyes themselves are dark brown to hazel and lighter eyes are considered a fault of the breed. The longer hair of the eyebrows may fall forward over the eyes and the bushy hair on the eyebrows really highlights the facial expressions and eye movement. The ears are rather wide and the bottom and form and inverted triangle that are folded forward so the ears blend into the rounding of the skull. The curly, longer hair on the side of the face blends with the hair on the ears. The neck is short and strong and flows into the sloping shoulders. The chest is moderately deep and wide and the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier appears substantial when viewed from the front. The topline is level and the tail is carried upright when natural or docked. Traditionally the tail has been docked rather long but this practice is no longer allowed in many countries. Even when natural the tail should not curl up over the back. The coat of the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is a single coat that is very thick but not coarse or wiry like the other terrier breeds. The coat is to be wavy but not curly, and it also cannot be straight. The puppies are born with a dark apricot coloration that gradually fades to the wheaten color when the dog matures. There is a slight amount of blue or gray shading permissible on the ears of the mature dogs but this is the only deviation from the solid wheaten color that is allowed in the show ring.
