Life is merrier with a Kerry Blue Terrier

2008 Rescue Kerries Placed: Keegan


© 2016 Kerry Blue Terrier Foundation

Was fostered in Ontario, Canada 

Coordinator: Linda Grisley

At the end of May the “Spring Break” rescue brought 4 Kerries from an Amish dealer in Ohio into our Rescue program.

Keegan is a 5 year old male, initially identified as an “equal opportunity humper”. Obviously a successful stud dog, his foster home (with 2 females) was not deterred from accepting him and have sent glowing reports:

Someone is going to get a wonderful Dog!

This little guy (and I mean little, he is very small) is absolutely a dream. All he wants is to be touched. He will go out of his way to be beside you and snuggle in. He gets along great with the other dogs. He has not snapped at all when his romantic advances have been aggressively rejected. He is an extremely quick learner. He has learned that when the girls say no they mean no and he understands when we correct him for the behavior. I do not think this is going to be a significant problem at all. He is outside with them all the time now and is paying no attention to them other than to play.

He doesn’t bark at all and doesn’t seem to even whimper (so far). He is a very active dog who is always on the move but is very happy to settle down with you on the couch. He has absolutely no interest in the cats, despite their best efforts to get his attention. It is like they aren’t even around. No problem with new people, males or females, young or old. He comes when he is called and will sit (with help, so far).
He does need house training, but I have no doubt that this will be fairly easy. He is mostly marking, but again is responding to corrections. He is very good in the crate and has no problem spending the night in it. He acts very much like a young pup and as such he would definitely suit an active household. He is scheduled to be neutered this coming Wednesday (June 18).


Keegan was adopted by his foster home in September 2008.
