Was fostered North of Philadelphia.
Ozzie is one year old, the brother to Scooby, rescued from an Ohio Amish miller in the Spring Break Rescue in May 2008. He arrived at his foster home north of Philadelphia, rarin' to go. This is one happy boy! Because Ozzie had been caged since he was born, we are just learning about his personality and will be updating his progress.
Ozzie is up to date on shots and will be neutered shortly. He's working on house training, but does not soil in his crate, so he's off to a good start. He responds well to the "aah-aah" sound for corrections. He will need obedience training, which is a requirement of all Kerry Foundation adoptions.
Ozzie loves the great outdoors and is happy to spend as much time as he can exploring his fenced yard or sitting on the deck looking around. His foster home has two resident Kerries and a visiting puppy and he has shown no dog aggression, although he plays a bit rough with the pup. He does love to steal their toys, take them out in the yard, toss them in the air and run around the yard with glee.
This is a sweet Kerry boy who loves to be scratched and has delighted his foster mom and dad with his Kerry antics. Terrier experience and a sense of humor are a must for his adoptive family. A securely, escape artist proofed, fenced yard and somebody who is home during the day to give Ozzie the attention he needs will be the best home for him. He would love an active family and could be placed with dog-savvy children older than 5.

I'm thrilled to share the good news that Ozzie, rescued with his brother Scooby from an Amish breeder earlier this summer, went to his new home this weekend.
Priscilla and David Harvey fostered Ozzie for several months, working diligently on housebreaking and basic training even while their beloved Cialey was losing her battle with cancer. So while the Harveys worked on getting Ozzie ready for his future and got a good understanding of the right home environment for him, we kept looking for that right home. This was truly a team effort, with Holly Monahan calling adoption applicants and then Morgan Federicks meeting the adopters to ensure that the home was a loving one and the fence was secure for Ozzie, the escape artist who runs like the wind without looking back. (Well, he looks back, but you can only see the whites of his eyes....you know the drill!)
Thank you to everybody involved in Ozzie's rescue and placement!
