I am currently hoping my foster pups get adopted by lady whose 12-yr old wheaten passed away from cancer about 6 months ago. She says they definitely DO jump- not necessarily on you, just jump in general- and are well known for the "wheaten greetin' " . She says there's nothing quite like coming home to a dog who is so thrilled to greet you that he'll jump up to eye level a few times to say hello.
If you DO continue to look into the wheaten terriers, this is a rescue in Kansas dedicated to wheatens that she sent me.
Some of their stories are heartbreaking, but they're all such sweethearts its KINDA hard to say no
