The Soft-coated Wheaten Terrier (Irish: An Brocaire Buí) is a pure breed terrier originating from Ireland. These dogs are hypoallergenic, and are more easily tolerated by those allergic to other breeds. Wheatens typically have one of two coat types: Irish or American. The Irish coat is considered to be the breed standard. It is generally more silky and wavy than the American coat, which is thicker and more "wooly". Wheatens are generally friendly and playful, and tend to get along well with children and other dogs.
