2006 Great Ohio Rescue: JJ


© 2016 Kerry Blue Terrier Foundation


Jesse Jr. or JJ made the trek from Cleveland, OH to San Jose, CA and has settled in nicely with a good Irish family. John O'Connell is originally from Ireland and has always had a Kerry. When he lost Jesse Sr. recently to cancer the family set out on a search to complete their family and JJ has done just that. Settling in nicely JJ has the run of not one home but two as the O'Connell family have adjoining homes and yards with a gate in between which is sign posted as Kerry Xing!


Between John, his wife Mabel and their daughter Colleen, JJ finds that he has plenty of tummy rubs and ear scritches. Life couldn't be better.
