2007 Rescue Kerry Placement: Colleen


© 2016 Kerry Blue Terrier Foundation

Colleen--1-year-old female fostered in Tulsa, OK 

Rescue Contact: Janet Joers

Colleen was turned over to Kerry Foundation Rescue because her owner was unable to give her the exercise, attention, training, and playtime she so very much needed.

This beautiful girl is petite (under 30 lbs.) with a lovely coat, and as lively as you would expect a 16-month-old "pup" to be. She's very active, loves to bark at squirrels and strange noises, and play is her middle name. Despite early lack of socialization, she interacts well with other dogs (but not cats), especially the male Kerry puppy in her foster home. The two of them bound in and out of rooms and all over the back yard, running and playing nonstop. This is a happy little girl with energy to spare!

Colleen is very, very affectionate and seems to know no stranger, kids and adults alike. She came to us with almost no training, but is learning her commands, and is being tutored by several well behaved Kerries. She will need someone who's ready to train her through the basics, and formal basic obedience class is a must (as it is with all of our Rescues). Initially she exhibited some submissive urination, which is no longer a problem, but training will give her the confidence she needs to overcome this entirely.

Colleen is in excellent health, spayed, house-trained, crate-trained (she will sleep in her crate if asked to, but prefers the bed), eats like a lumberjack, and is very bright and curious. She will make a fabulous companion for the right family.


Colleen's ideal home is one where someone is there most of the time to give her the attention and training she needs. Her energy level requires a fenced back yard and regular daily leash walks for good, solid exercise and mental stimulation. She would appreciate a doggie companion, but most of all, she wants a family to love her.
