2007 Rescue Kerry Placement: Culley


© 2016 Kerry Blue Terrier Foundation


Culley--3-year-old male fostered in Southern CA 

Rescue Contact: Janet Joers

Culley was turned over to the Kerry Foundation by his owner who discovered that he was more dog than the family bargained for. Fun-loving, exuberant, friendly, and energetic, Culley exhibits a zest for life and true terrier temperament. He needs a home who understands and appreciates his Kerry-ness!

Culley is a 3-year-old neutered Irish import, purchased by a puppy mill in the States, and sold to an unsuspecting family. He is a very sweet boy, friendly with everyone, and loves to play. He does well with other dogs, and is excited to meet them, enticing them to play. He is good with older children, having lived with children ages 8 and 12. He knows his basic obedience commands, but needs a refresher course to be on his best behavior. Culley is completely house-trained and very reliable.

He is a healthy boy, but recently suffered an injury with his bark collar. It was put on too tight for a week, and the prongs punctured his throat, causing abscessed wounds. Surgery was performed, sutures have since been removed, and he is healing up nicely. Culley wore a bark collar because he barked in his outdoor run when the neighbors or their dog were out, or when he was left alone. He is calm and quiet in the house as long as he is not separated from his family. Proper training and consistent socialization is expected to solve any barking issues or separation anxiety.

We are looking for a home where someone is there most of the time to give Culley the attention and companionship he craves. His energy level requires a fenced back yard and regular daily leash walks for good, solid exercise and mental stimulation. But most of all, Culley needs a family to love!



Culley was placed on 18-Jan-07.
