2011 Rescue Kerries Placed: Bo


© 2016 Kerry Blue Terrier Foundation

Rescue Coordinator: Linda Lee

Bo is a healthy six year old male Kerry/Wheaton mix. He has a soft, wavy black coat with silver underneath, just like a Kerry, and the coat texture more like a Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier. He is very playful, with energy to spare, and will need daily walks and exercise in a fenced back yard - two things he doesn't currently have.

Bo is good with children and with other dogs (he lives with another male dog), as well as with cats (who he also lives with). He's a loving dog and demanding of attention. When bored and lonely, Bo may chew on things not his, or have accidents in the house, especially when he is left by himself. Bo knows "sit" and comes when called. He is currently doing well at obedience class.

Bo was posted for rescue a few years ago, but then his owner decided she could not part with him. Now she has come to the realization that she just cannot meet his needs for exercise and attention. While she hates to give him up, she knows a new home is best for Bo.

Bo needs a home with a fenced yard and a family that will give him lots of exercise, love and attention. Someone who is home during the day would be ideal for this sweet boy.

Bo is fantastic and having a great life. What a darling. What a great dog. My family and friends have all fallen in love with him, especially my 5 year old great nephew!
