2008 Rescue Kerries Placed: Sophie


© 2016 Kerry Blue Terrier Foundation

Sophie is not with the Kerry Foundation. This is a courtesy post for the Bright Futures Pet Adoption and Rescue organization in Columbus, Nebraska who is currently fostering Sophie and will be placing her. 

We suspect Sophie is a Kerry Blue Terrier based on the information and pictures provided by the rescue and the fact that a known puppy mill in the area has not been able to sell their Kerry pups (and thus likely dumped her since she was picked up as a stray). This is the information Bright Futures provided on Sophie:

Sophie is 15 inches tall and appears to be 6 to 9 months old, so she will get a little bigger. This girl is a dream boat. She is very quiet and well behaved, gets along very well with other dogs and cats and she is housebroken. Please do your homework if you are interested in Sophie. This breed is not for everyone. A fenced yard will be required. Sophie still needs to get in to be spayed, heartworm tested and vaccinated and we hope to get that done ASAP. She will be available for adoption after that.

Sophie was placed December 6, 2008.
