Famous Wheatens

July 8, 2012

When the Irish Softcoated Wheaten Terrier Club was officially formed in Ireland in 1937, there were 18 dogs and 19 bitches entered into the stud book. All wheaten pedigrees go back to these original dogs:

Barrington Boy, Blarney Boy. Bully’s Corner, Captain, Fenian, Flesk Boy, Grip, Jack, Kilbarry Boy, Killian’s Rambler, Major, Mickey, Mug, Nailor, Prince, Scotland Nigger, Soldier, Spot

Blarney Rose, Comic Lass, Girlie, Irish Rose, Jess, Julie, Kilcully Lass, Loo Lady, Merry or Merrey, Monastill, Moyne Lady, Nell, Peggy, River Lass, Rose, Rose of Rochestown, Sally, Sport, Vix

There are many excellent examples of Irish Wheaten Terriers. Other than a few minor changes here and there, the standard for the breed remains the same as it has been since 1937, so these dogs are all representative of quality wheatens for more than seven decades.
