2007 Rescue Kerry Placement: Martha


© 2016 Kerry Blue Terrier Foundation


Martha--1-year-old female fostered in OH 

Rescue Contact: Janet Joers

Martha lived her entire life in a puppy mill until now, when rescued by the Kerry Foundation. She is currently in a loving foster home where she is learning--and learning quickly!--all the joys of being a companion house dog.

Martha is only a year old, and came to us matted, dirty, and with eye infections. Today she is clean, groomed to the nines by a pro, and her eyes are well healed after treatment, with no ongoing problems. She must feel like a new girl!
This is a very sweet 31-lb. Kerry girl who will stick to you like glue, sitting by your feet or quietly cuddling in your lap. These are joys she's never had before. She's also tearing around the back yard at a dead run, enjoying her newfound freedom. Martha does well with other dogs, and runs freely with her male housepals.

Martha would do best in a family where someone is home most of the time to give her the human companionship she craves and never had. We expect her to do well in training, since she bonds so closely with her people. Described as "VERY nice" by her Foster Mom, we are looking for a very special family for this little one!


Martha, a mill rescue from Ohio, had been in foster care for several months while we waited patiently for a home that would be perfect for her. She now has it, again in Massachusetts, with a very Kerry experienced couple who have an older male Kerry. When I did the home visit prior to finalizing the adoption, I brought along Isobel so these Kerry knowledgeable owners would understand the soft temperament of a mill survivor. They fell in love with Isobel and said that is just the type of Kerry they want. And so the deal was sealed.
