The Scottie Dog News has had another request for information on where to get a wheaten Scottish Terrier, this time from a reader in Northern Ireland, who writes:
I noticed that you had a post a few days ago from someone in Canada looking for a Wheaten Scottie. We too are looking for one, but we’re in Northern Ireland – Wheaten Scotties seem to be rarer than hen’s teeth over on this side of the Atlantic pond. So, I was hoping you could ask your learned readers if they know of any Wheaten Scottie breeders in Ireland or Great Britain, heck, we’d even go to Europe to get one. Unfortunately travelling to the US/Canada is out, due to the requirement for a 6 month quarantine period.
Hmmm, in our in-depth research on Scotties around the world, we seem to spot a fair number of wheaten or white Scottish Terriers in Germany and France.
Elevage du Beffroi Mac Dermotte (scroll down) appears to have wheaten Scots along with westies, Sealyhams and Czech terriers. And Arabella’s Scottish Terriers in Germany, which has raised many a champion, definitely breeds Wheaten Scotties. And perhaps a well brought-up Deutscher dog would help set a good example for Maggie and Seány, shown below and described by their owner as “two highly disobedient, messy and destructive Scotties.” Ordnung, bitte!
European wheaten experts, comment away. For all our posts on “white Scotties” click on the wheaten label directly below.
