Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers at Barum

It has been decided that this website should include some pictures of our Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers (SCWT) - frequently known as "Wheatens".

We have had three:- Max (Maxwell) - who was born in September 1992 and died in October 2004.
Rosie (Rosie) who was born in September 1994 and died November 2006.
Now we are left with Barney (Barnaby) who was born in July 2004, but he counts as three normal Wheatens.

Details of the breed may be found on the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier club's web site:-

From a personal point of view we think the breed is fabulous as family dogs, being very friendly, happy and 'trainable-ish'. They have a fine coat which is easy to groom - they don't have an undercoat. Alas, they love water, and as their coat is not waterproof, they can seem to take all day to dry out.

The table below consists of a set of thumbnails. These are ordered chronologically. Clicking on these thumbnails will cause a larger image to be displayed in a new frame.
