August 2011

Patrick is being fostered by George Hanna, the Rescue Coordinator for the Southeast.

Patrick has adapted well to his foster home and runs and plays with 12 other dogs - including puppies and unaltered Kerries. He has had no issues. At night he stays in thekKitchen with 7 uncreated dogs.

He spends the weekends at work with me in the grooming shop running, loose with about 30 dogs each day going in and out, including meeting all the humans with no issues.

He also spent the weekend with our 3-year old son and loves him dearly.

He spends 4 days a week in Florida traveling with me and two other male Kerries and a puppy. He is never crated and is very well behaved and great manners in the car. Patrick loves car rides.

Has been out socially on and off lead including the Savannah night life downtown.

Patrick just needs a loving home and an occasional treat.

He has been dramatically different that what has been described when he was turned into KBTF.

He is a great mature Kerry, deserving a great mature home.

Patrick died of an apparent aneurism a few days ago. Just dropped dead while playing happily with George's puppies. It sounds like he was an absolutely great kerry boy, and I'm glad he had a few months in George's care, where he was clearly happy and felt secure.
