Sebastian here. I’m a good looking guy if I say so myself .. and everyone tells me that too. Well, after five years of living a good life and being well cared for my family up and left me at an animal shelter. I know, go figure. Then when they took me to the shelter one of them had to go off and say something to the shelter employees about me being a good stud dog! Well, that didn’t go over and I can see why … the shelter was full of fellow dogs: big ones, little ones, lots of purebreds and lots of cool looking mixes. Like me they all just wanted to go home – any home.
This is what I looked like when I was dropped off at the shelter. Lots and lots of hair! The shelter staff decided, rightly so, that I was a bit much to take care of and that they had lots of things to do rather than deal with brushing me everyday … and, secretly, I think they wanted to be sure I was neutered. So I went off to a rescue.
Back to that neutering thing: what is with these people and their total absorption into making sure we are all spayed or neutered? Gees, after I was groomed my foster mom took one look at my precious equipment back there and says: “Sweetheart, those got to go!” She didn’t even get a good look till after I was groomed .. but wow, was I proud after I was groomed!
The groomer did a great job but she complained about me not having a ‘skirt” – like do I look like a girl? – and then no fall. My foster mom had to ask what a fall was! The groomer said it is this hair that falls down my nose .. and she started me up one! The groomer actually loved me: she said I was excellently behaved and that I’m a great looking Soft Coated Wheaton – duh!
My new owners have to be prepared for lots of grooming for me: the groomer says brushing daily and a trip to a groomer every 4-6 weeks! She says that if someone took care of me and that if a groomer knew what they were doing, I could look like the best Soft Coated Wheaton in the Midwest! Ok, maybe not that exactly but something like that.
My foster mom says there are things you will want to know about me: I’m great with other dogs and with cats. I am low key and for a Wheaton that is unusual. I have terrific house manners, I go potty only outside, I sleep on the floor in my mom and dad’s bedroom. Let’s see …. well, hey, I’m a great looking guy!
Mom says anyone wanting to adopt me should have some Soft Coated Wheaton knowledge for sure and be very aware of my grooming needs. She says I should not look like this ever again.
