Heirloom Wheatens
Greater Denver Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Club.

The Greater Denver Soft Coated Wheaten Club is committed to the well-being of the breed we love, the purebred Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. We understand that sometimes a new home must be found for the dog and are here to support that process.

While listed on the website of the National Club (, our club's rescue activity is limited to our local geography only. For inquiries regarding dogs from out of our area please refer to the National Club's Rescue Chairman, Nancy Butler, 505-433-5009,

Given legal and manpower restrictions, we have developed a re-homing process for the dogs that the GDSCWTC Rescue deems are appropriate for placement. We are different from some other rescue organizations in that we do not take dogs from the current owner before a new placement is found. We do not have foster homes available for the dogs we are working to re-home or other dogs in transition. The dog stays with the current owner until placement with the new owner.

We do not re-home dogs that have aggression issues toward humans or other animals. All dogs must be spayed or neutered.

Our Re-Homing Process:

Before we commit to re-homing a dog, we conduct thorough evaluations of the dog and the situation to determine if the clog is appropriate for placement.

Owner Interview: Current owners of the dog must thoroughly complete the surrender application. The names and phone numbers of the dog's groomer and veterinarian must be provided. We then have a conversation to determine what has occurred that requires the surrender of the dog. A home visit may be required. Legal release documents will need to be signed by all adult members of the household.

Select the appropriate form.
