We're after a wheaten terrier (or wheaten terrier cross). We don't want a show dog or one to breed, just a good natured family pup that will get on with kids and other dogs in the village, and like going to the beach. We've researched a lot of breeds and this one seems to be the type that will fit in and be happy with us. Can you suggest anyone else who might be able to help us in our search?



I know it's a Wheaten terrier that you are looking for, but this rescue have this fabulous Kerry Blue girl looking for a home:

Just might be something you would consider

Breeders also breed pet quality pups, they should be a lot cheaper than their show quality equivalents but I have heard of some breeders selling all their pups at the same price regardless of pet or show.

Good point chris.

Sounds like I could have my work cut out for me trying to distinguish between ads.

We'll see how it goes sure.

Just to elaborate on this - Breeders shouldn't be breeding pet quality pups purposely, there are of course some born in every litter however it would be hard to tell behind a very obvious flaw if an eight week old pup is pet or show quality. A good breeder would also put as much time, effort and money into every pup in a litter and thusly would be charging the same for each pup as they all cost the same to raise. It is possible however for a breeder to have older pups or young adults which someone could purchase for a cheper price if they have proven that the dog was definately only pet quality.
