About Wheatens

“A Wheaten.” “From the land of mysterious druids, wailing banshees & impish leprechauns comes this bundle of joy”. He has a typical happy-go-lucky Irish outlook. He loves children and thrives on human companionship. Extrovert and exuberant, he is willing to go anywhere at any time. He requires a little patience to train, but is eager to please."

His coat, when natural, needs very little care: described as the colour of ripening wheat, it is soft and silky and suits his jaunty approach to life. A sturdy dog who is hardy and unexaggerated in any way, he makes an excellent house pet.
