Was fostered in New Jersey
Maddie is a 2 or 3 year old Kerry girl who loves, loves, loves to play with her male foster Wheaten. She's a sweetheart of a cuddler with no bad habits. No chewing, shares everything with her Wheaten pal, and is gentle as can be. She's the perfect little lady!
Maddie was rescued with Lingus from a nasty puppy mill. She has been transformed into a beauty, with a lovely light coat and dark head. Weighing 31 lbs, fully vetted (heartworm negative, excellent full blood panel results) and recently spayed, she is ready to go to her forever home. Maddie is fostered in New Jersey.
Maddie has some fear issues, which is somewhat common among mill rescues that have had no exposure to normal life.. She needs a home that has the patience and ability to work with her to trust men and gain exposure to new situations in order to build confidence. She will likely overcome this quickly in the right environment and with lots of treats. She is great with the 11 year old son in the foster home, although a quiet home without a lot of traffic would be best. She absolutely needs a male dog for companionship and to show her the ropes, in addition to a securely fenced yard and owners who are home during the day. She's been neglected for her first three years and will never be neglected again.
Maddie has not had any housebreaking accidents in her foster home, where they take her out every few hours. This will need continued monitoring to ensure she fully understands that she needs to ask to go out.
This is one lovely Kerry lass with a gentle temperament who will become a treasure to her lucky adoptive family.
The first step in the adoption process is to submit an adoption questionnaire, which can be found at Available Rescue Kerries . We prefer that Maddie be placed within driving distance of New Jersey.

This weekend, Maddie, rescued with her brother Lingus from one of the most disgusting back yard breeders we've come across, went to her forever home. She has a fenced yard, an older Kerry boy named Andrew to show her the ropes, and very gentle, loving new owners who have all day to spend with her. Thank you to Stephen and Debby Marcus who visited the adopters and got to see where Maddie would be living. And also to Kathie and Ron MacFarlane who were instrumental in freeing both Maddie and Lingus from their 24/7 caged existence.
Maddie is placed.
