| Quotation Mrs. M.
"The Wheaten as a dog is unusual in many ways:
the warm honeycoloured silken coat; the desire to please; the curiosity that makes him want to be in everything that is going on; the boundless energy and vitality; the infinite patience with children who can be trying at times; the bright intelligence; the non-shedding coat; the adaptability of the tough, hardy nature to all walks of life; the defence without aggression....
The Wheaten is not a 'coat trailer', but he will fight if provoked. A dog without spirit is but a poor speciman, and, if the fight is forced on a Wheaten, the aggressor stands a very small chance of being the winner." ((M. Holmes, The Softcoated Wheaten Terrier, pages 4 + 5).
