Meet An Adoptable Dog
Breed: Wheaten Terrier (long coat)
Weight: 47 lbs
Height: 19 in
Estimated Birthdate: 3/3/2013
Fence Needed: Yes
Location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC
Reason for being in rescue: Breeder release, breeder downsizing/ retiring due to health
Special Needs: Willie has an ear infection that we are treating. Yes, wheaten terriers are considered hypoallergenic
What kind of home would be best for me: Willie will need a highly active home with patient owners willing to teach him manners.
What is my personality like: WIllie is a dog with a huge personality! He is all about having fun and giving kisses. Willie is enthusiastic about everything in life with a curiosity that keeps him going. Unfortunately, he does lack basic manners and is not used to life outside of being a stud dog. Willie does need leash and basic command work, but he is treat motivated and willing if you can keep his attention long enough!
Willie co-existed peacefully with two female dogs (that he kept pregnant) but we know he can be dog selective. He would be best in an only dog home where for once he can be the best friends to his people without having to compete.
Willie is a bother to his feline friends and is just too much for them. Despite his age, he is still all puppy. He has so much potential and will make his humans happy!
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly but curious to everything else around him. Willie enjoys people but he is not used to being in the adoption center so at first he's too busy smelling all the smells. He is a confident guy and won't jump all over you but that is not a bad thing.
Tips and Tidbits: Willie is eager and ready to meet his new humans he will call his family!
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
