Fostered in Ohio
Jack is a healthy three year old male Kerry, currently living in the Cincinnati area. Jack is a sweet dog, good around people, including children. Squirrels, rabbits and cats – beware!
Jack’s owner died recently, so now he is in the same household as his brother. Jack needs a new home because he does not like his brother and dog fights ensure. Jack wants to be the alpha male, so he will need his new family to be firm, consistent and caring. Obedience training for Jack will be a must.
Jack gets along with female dogs and could is probably live with a female dog if the family is dog savvy, otherwise it would be preferable if he were the only dog in the household.
Jack needs a caring family with a large fenced yard where he can play. He also needs people who are experienced terrier owners and have the time, energy and patience to provide him with the love and training he needs. Jack will also have to be neutered by his adoptive family.

Jack is in a foster placement, away from his brother. But he needs to find his forever home soon as his foster family will not be able to keep him too much longer because of their busy schedule. Jack, who turned four in August, is a healthy boy weighing just under 40 lbs. He has been checked by a veterinarian (heartworm negative) and has now been neutered.
Jack’s foster family confirms that he is indeed a loving family dog, good with people of all ages! He is housebroken, a true gentleman in the house, and walks well on a leash. In his foster home he is smitten with (and submissive to) a 10 year old Kerry female. However, Jack really needs a securely fenced yard in which to play! If he sees anything of interest, he will try to dig or leap his way out. Once pursuing a distraction, Jack has no interest in coming back when called.
Jack needs a forever family (definitely no cats!) who will love him, watch over him, and continue to work with him. In a terrier experienced home it is likely Jack will get along with a female dog friend. So, if you are a terrier experienced family with a securely fenced yard (high fence please!), consider submitting an application to adopt this sweet boy.
Jack was placed in New York, in January 2010.
