Molly O’Connell, who is the Health Chair of the SCWT Club of America, has contacted our Club with a request to British owners of Soft-Coated Wheaten Terriers asking them to support the continued development of the SCWT Endowment database, which holds information about Wheaten Terriers worldwide.

This database is key tool to helping breeders and owners of Wheaten Terriers around the world, ensure the ongoing good health and development of our breed. Without the input of information from owners and breeders, it cannot make the most of its potential.

Please read Molly’s letter and support this initiative if you can. Molly’s letter can be seen by clicking on the following link, which will open in a new page – SCWT Endowment Database Letter.
