The name Ziva means Light - the one that makes the way illuminated. And indeed it is - it is our light, it is our roadmap, it leads us into an unknown one and makes life worth living.

Her love, her envy overwhelmed not only us but also all she touches because her life motive is simple: she lives today as if it was the only day.

We realized quite early that Ziva changes everything she touches, she has a strong terrier character, but also a great amount of love and patience for people.

We tried hard to develop her doggy traits to the maximum: sniffing, digging, crawling into holes, stalking and hunting….we also worked on socialization, spending time with different people and children.

We  are quite proud of Ziva’s relationship with people, especially children – it’s a quality she transferred to her babies, and we designed special methods of socialization for the puppies from our litter A, who are not just well adapted to life with their new families, but also have  quality foundations for entering training process for a dog in therapy and helping people or children.

Wheaten Terriers have always been with people and their sensibility to people’s needs is natural and innate. Our Ziva is additionally sensible to emotions people have and can very distinctly differentiate between different states people are in. all of Ziva’s babies have been prepared in such a way in the litter.

This natural sensibility in Ziva, as well as the circumstances, impelled me to have Ziva help me in work when I work with people and children. With her character and sensibility Ziva best suits children and low energy people (as are the elderly, people in a state of loss, depressive people).
