2007 Rescue Kerry Placement: Bo


© 2016 Kerry Blue Terrier Foundation

Bo, 1.5 years old , Minneapolis, MN

Bo is a Kerry/Wheaten mix, bred in a puppy mill and purchased as a present for the buyer's sister. Unfortunately, the sister didn't want him (she already had a dog, and was going through a divorce), and he was returned to his current owner. Unfortunately, the current owner doesn't have time for him (she has another dog and a 3-year-old toddler), and the Foundation is trying to find him a qualified home.

Bo is a 1.5 year old male and has a soft, wavy black coat with silver underneath, just like a Kerry, and the coat texture more like a Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier. He is very playful, with energy to spare, and will need daily walks and exercise in a fenced back yard--two things he doesn't currently have.

Bo is said to be good with children (the 3-year-old pulls his ears and tail and he "doesn't mind"), good with other dogs (he lives with a male), and good with cats (who he also lives with). He's a loving dog, and demanding of attention. When bored and lonely, Bo may chew on things not his, or have accidents in the house, so training is necessary, along with crating when he can't be supervised. Yes, he is crate-trained and does well when confined for short periods. Bo also knows "sit," and comes when called.

11/2007 Update on Bo:

Bo was adopted by her foster family.
