Our Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier

After our Akita has passed away, I wasn't sure I wanted another dog, but after a year the house was too quiet. We started looking for another dog to fill the void. Our Akita was wonderful but she was 100 lbs and shed her fur everywhere. This time around I was looking for a dog that did not shed and was way under 100 lbs. My daughter introduced me to the Wheaton Terriers a few years ago and I never forgot that cute little dog. I told my husband, to look into adopting a Wheaton. He is great with research so I let him try and find a breeder for us. We first tried to find one in Florida, but none were available at the time. He did some more research and found Heartland Classics. After a few emails and pictures, we were hooked. We adopted a little girl and named her Brooklyn. She came to us the first week in January 2013. What a wonderful experience. She only had two accidents and was house broken in no time. We have four grand- children ages 6, 4, 3 and 1. She is wonderful with them. She plays with them and gives them kisses. We also have horses and the first thing I did when she arrived home was to introduce her to her BIG friends. She took to them immediately. Nose to nose and even kisses my horse. We are teaching Brooklyn tricks. She catches on so quickly. She is a smart and gets along with any dog, big or small, she just them all. We are so happy that we found Heartland Classics and are extremely happy with Brooklyn. She has added so much to our family.
