Five boys and one girl! My sweet Brook gave birth to her puppies on Saturday, March 31, 2018. All puppies and mom are healthy and doing well.
It is important to me to produce healthy, well-balanced puppies. My puppies are home raised in a smoke-free environment and receive exceptional care. I insist that no puppy will leave for their new home until they are at least 8 weeks old. They are well socialized and I provide a 2-year health guarantee for congenital life-threatening defects. If you are interested in an Anloch Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier and feel that a Wheaten might be the right breed for you, feel free to contact us for more information.
The controversy of tail docking
Today, the practice is more a tradition than a health consideration. In fact, dog registries in Europe and some Canadian provinces forbid tail docking. Historically Wheaten Terrier tails were docked for several reasons including aesthetics. For many years a docked tail was part of the breed standard of the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier and was required to be it docked in order to enter conformation shows.
I have chosen not to dock my puppies tails for the following reasons:
It is not required by the breed standard
I do not want to cause any trauma to the puppy or mom
A Wheaten with a naturally long tail is just as happy as the docked one
It is an archaic and unnecessary practice
"Happy Wheaten Owners"
“We adopted Desiree a few years ago from Monika at Anloch’s Wheaten Terriers.
She was 6 years old at the time. Desiree fit right into our family. She is great with our children and is a joy to have. She has a special ability to watch over our children. Desiree makes regular visits to our school and to some retirement homes where she brings joy and laughter to young and old.
We highly recommend Monika’s wheatens because of their wonderful temperament and happy go lucky personality.”

"Over the last 17 years, we have had the privilege to own several of Monika's wheaten terriers. (Kiwi, Charlotte and Pippin)
Every one of them has been wonderful. Their jovial personality and wonderful disposition make them great companions. They fantastic with our grandchildren and love everyone.
Monika takes great of all of her dogs and we highly recommend her wheatens".
"I own two wheatens from Monika (Frankie and Sebastian) and have always appreciated their beautiful personalities. Both my dogs went to obedience school and learned to be great travel companions. My younger dog Sebastian accompanies me on my travels as a sales representative. He is certainly the best ice-breaker I could ever have. Monika's dogs are great ambassadors of their breed."
