In terms of its origin, the Wheaten terrier is the oldest of all the terrier breeds known to the dog breeding community. They are common in ancestry to Kerry Blue and Irish terriers that are a staple in the terrier breeding world. 

Originating in Ireland, they were known as the “poor man’s wolf hound” since they were not popular among the rich. They were used as guard dogs, and to herd cattle.

The breed began to die out in 1932, so Irish breeders attempted to keep the bloodline going.  As of 1937, the Irish Kennel Club recognized the soft-coat Wheaten terrier as a breed unto itself. By 1939 the breed was imported to Great Britain and by 1943 was finally recognized as a breed by the British Kennel Club.
