2013 Rescue Kerries Placed: Bailey (female)

Bailey….No, I am the Girly One!

Rescue Coordinator: Diane Collins

Rescue Write-Up

Here is another Bailey for us. She was turned over to a shelter when her elderly owner could no longer care for both her and the female Lakeland Terrier she lived with. Bailey was too big to be a lap dog and the most upset over the health of her owner so she drew the short straw and had to go. Kerry lovers were watching over the shelter and pulled Bailey on the same day she was to be euthanized.

Here are pictures of Bailey before and after a grooming. What that curly coat was covering was not pretty. Bailey had eye infections that had sealed both eyes, several large sebaceous cyst, including one that had ruptured and had an ulceration the size of a dime. Her temporary foster took her to the vet today for surgery and a good eye check. In a few days, she will be back to full health and ready to play. Her coat will be taken down so that it can grow in evenly. Bailey was not interested in looking like a checkerboard.

Bailey is a purebred Kerry who has been spayed. She has never had any major health problems. Her foster reports her to be good with Kerry males (see her picture with her Kerry boyfriend!) as well as a young Kerry girl. Bailey is 8 and her Lakeland companion was 6 so she has lived with another female dog. She does not like cats but has been introduced to the foster's grandchild and acted appropriately. She is very happy playing (nicely) off leash at the local dog part.

This is a sweet Kerry girl who has high hopes and standards for a new owner. She would like a fenced yard, companionship, someone to follow around, love and the return of loyalty. Bailey is ready for a new home where she can play and run with her unset Kerry ears flying!
