known for its loving
greetings, earning it the
nickname of the

Maggie is my Soft-coated Wheaten Terrier. She is 12 months
old, and is very playful. Maggie loves greeting people and playing in the
snow. We got her on June 26, 2009 from a breeder in Lancaster, PA

be a little rough, but when you need someone to cheer you up, she can
put a smile on your face.

The Wheaten’s Build
Wheatens are medium sized with long Terrier legs. When
Wheatens are born, they have a rusty brown coat. It’s only
when they outgrow their puppy stage, that it turns blonde. As
this happens, they develop a soft, luscious, silky coat. As adults,
they can have a long tuft of fur that covers their eyes, called a
fau. They can also have a long beard under their chin. Also, as
soft and sweet as this pooch seems, they still have those
Terrier teeth.
