2009 Rescue Kerries Placed: Kate


© 2016 Kerry Blue Terrier Foundation

Rescue Coordinator: Tracey Fulmer


I'm Kate. I'm a 3 1/2 year old, spayed female and looking for a home where people will love me and hug me. My previous home wasn't able to give me much attention due to an illness in the family. They struggled with the decision to let me find a new home, but in the end, decided it was the right thing to do for me.

I'm puppy-like and up for lots of playing but I love a snuggle on the couch, too. I can run really fast and roll in the grass so a secure fence is a must. (No electric fences due to a history of breaking out in her previous home.) At my foster home I am completely house-trained and stand by the door when I need to go out. My foster folks say I'm a good eater and not fussy. I know how to sit and walk on a leash.

I'm a big girl (not overweight, but statuesque for a Kerry gal) with beautiful eyes, a tiny tail, sideways ears and have much love to give. You'll appreciate that I get along with other dogs and kids (age 5+) and should go to a home with another dog to play with so I'm not isolated. Also, since I didn't get much attention in my first home, but have blossomed with all of the attention I receive from my foster family, I will need owners who are home during the day.

P.S. Don't forget the toys!!

Kate is fostered near Philadelphia. She will only be placed in a home within driving distance of Philadelphia.

On September 8, 2009, Kate was adopted by her foster parents.
