Hank is a purebred male Soft Coated
Wheaten Terrier.  His DOB is 1/31/08

Hank is a owner turn-in. Below is some
information from them:

This is a very difficult letter to write and
decision to make, but after much
consideration we feel that the best thing
for Hank is to find him a more suitable
home.  Unfortunately, we are unable to
care for him in the way he needs and
deserves.  He is a sweet dog and has
been raised around 3 young children.  
When we got Hank as a puppy, amidst
a toddler and a busy family, we did not
have the patience and persistence to
housetrain him, therefore he is outside
most of the time.   We live on a farm with
an unfenced yard, which often presents
mud, stickers, skunks, and coyotes.  This
is a concern for his safety, as well as
extremely difficult to care for his coat in
the way it should be cared for.  He is
good with our kids, but his exuberance
is overwhelming for our 3 year old.  The
jumping is a problem with visitors of any
kind and particularly children.  He has
never bitten, but is very protective
of his food.  His exposure to other dogs
is limited, but has not been a problem.  
He gets along well with our cats, but at
times his play is rough with them.

We recognize there are other options
to rehome Hank, but we are impressed
with your organization and feel that he
would be assured of a good home.  As
difficult as this decision is to make,
ultimately we want what is best for our
dog.  I honestly believe he will make a
great dog for someone who can provide
him with the proper care and

Hank is neutered and up to date on
