Lilly's Story...
Lilly is a friendly, enthusiastic, loving girl. She is social and affectionate with everyone including children of all ages, other dogs, and cats. She loves to play and enjoys the company of other dogs as well as her people. She is a young adult approximately 2 years old and weighs 35 lbs.

Lilly has a true Wheaton’s heart and is a happy, playful and friendly terrier. She has loads of spunk and would make a great family pet for an active, fun-loving family. She would love to be part of a family with respectful children that would enjoy romping and playing with her in the backyard. She also enjoys playing with other dogs so another friendly canine in the home would be great. Lilly would be fine as an only pet but would need someone to ensure she got at least a good walk each day as well as playtime with her person and lots of cuddles. Cats are no problem in the home as she has little to no interest in them.

Lilly is self confident and loves to be in the thick of things. She is curious and friendly with everyone and would be a fun family companion. She can be a bit timid when she first meets a new man but quickly overcomes it. She loves to go for outings whether it is in the car, off to the dog park or just a stroll around the neighbourhood to meet new friends.

Lilly has a puppy attitude that will probably remain throughout her life. She has lots of spunk and is very light-hearted. She is like a Teddy-Bear and loves affection. As she loves to play and really loves people, she would do well with toy based training and lots of positive reinforcement. She is sweet tempered and self confident with little to no fear of anything.

Lilly was dumped in a kill shelter where they sprayed the kennels down with chemicals while the dog was still in the kennel and she received some burns on her feet but they have healed nicely. For this reason however she has not been kept in a crate. As her foster mom works a normal work week and she has been left loose in the home, she has not as yet learned how to signal that she needs to go out but is well on her way to being fully house trained.

Lilly is an intelligent girl and in just a short time has learned to sit for leash on/off, and to sit for treats. We are working on “wait” on walks and “stay” in the car. She will come in the house when called. Lilly loves to go for car rides, and is learning that she has to sit or lie down while we are travelling. She gets very excited when we reach our destination, and is learning that she has to wait to get out. We are also working on her leash manners but at this point she is still wanting to say “hi” to everyone we meet on our walks. She is a very happy and friendly dog that thinks the whole world is here for her to explore and get to know.

If you think this fun-loving girl would be a good addition to your family, please go to our website at and submit an application for consideration.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lilly, a Hamilton Wheaten Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Wheaten Terrier for sale in Hamilton, or seeking a Wheaten Terrier dog from a breeder in Hamilton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hamilton already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Hamilton breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Wheaten Terrier breeders who help with Wheaten Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Hamilton paves the way for another one to be saved.
