Max

We found out about Heartland Classics on a trip to Chicago, where we bumped into a dog and her owner. The dog, an Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, had a wonderful temperament, and the owner told us she had gotten the dog from Heartland Classics. We contacted Barb, and arranged a visit. Barb did not know which puppies we would want to see, and all of the puppies we asked to see were clean and, of course, adorable. After spending over an hour, visiting with the puppies, and talking to Barb, we settled on "Freddy" (Max, now). We received new photos every two weeks, until he was ready to leave. We asked to see his parents when we came to pick him up, and Barb said, of course. We did see the parents, Gil and Felix, who were quite active in the yard. We spent more time with Barb and "Freddy," and Barb patiently answered all of our questions and gave us great advice. We have now had our Irish Wheaten, Max, for two weeks. Our vet said he was perfectly healthy. Barb and her team did a great job in socializing him: he responds well to people and other dogs, and is very willing to be touched and handled on all parts of his body. He is very smart, very sweet, and a great companion. Thank you for, Barb, for being the "human" source of our wonderful dog.
