From Julie of Portland, OR

My husband and I had our hearts set on adopting a Wheaten Terrier... the only problem was that we couldn't find any that seemed to fit the bill near our home in Portland, OR. So, when an adorable Wheaten mix showed up in in Golden, CO on I called right away and reserved him. By the time my husband came home from work I had rented a car and had our things packed. Twenty hours later we met our soon-to-be-dog and he was absolutely insane!

I had never seen a dog so crazy in my life and both my husband and I were worried that we may have driven all this way to still be dogless. But once we got him outside and got him to relax, we knew he was the one for us. There is nothing like a 20-hour car ride home to get to know your new pooch!

He loves his life here in Portland. He is so well-behaved on our long walks around the city and I've also taught him tons of tricks. He is fitting in with us perfectly and we couldn't be happier. He is still a little crazy though, so his name, Chaos, fits him just right.
