2007 Rescue Kerry Placement: Bridget


© 2016 Kerry Blue Terrier Foundation

Bridget--6-year-old female residing in Norfolk, VA

Rescue Contact:  Dianne Ewing

Bridget was rescued in The Great Ohio Rescue on March 6, 2006. She weighed 19 pounds and came out of the puppy mill terrified of everything. Today she weighs 34 pounds and is happily spoiled, which we think she deserves after being in hell her first 5 years. She is the boss of the house, and lords it over her male Kerry housemate in typical Kerry girl style.

Bridget is in need of a new home, because she is uncomfortable around too much attention from young children. She nipped the ear of the family's stepdaughter when the stepdaughter was hugging her too tightly, and while there was no damage and it was an isolated incident, we feel it is in everyone's best interest that Bridget have a home with no young children. We expect her to do well with older children who understand dogs and how to treat them, and would give her her space when she needed it. She is fine with adults.

Bridget craves affection and is very sweet. She loves to take long walks and run in the back yard. She is still shy around strangers and other dogs she does not know. However, she loves her Kerry housemate, enjoys games of chase around the back yard, and should do fine with another dog. 

Bridget is crate trained and feels safe and secure in her crate, though she is never crated for more than a few hours at a time. She does not sleep in her crate at night, but prefers the end of her master's bed or her own bed in the bedroom.

Bridget is in excellent health, spayed, and a beautiful silver blue coat. She has been maintained on a special high fiber diet, which controlled her colitis when she first joined her family, and we would want her to be kept on this diet.

We are looking for a home within driving distance of Norfolk, VA, as we do not want to put her through the experience of air-shipping. This little girl has been well loved and cared for since her rescue a year and a half ago, and will make a lucky someone a truly loyal companion.


Bridgit was placed on November 12, 2007
