2014 Rescue Kerries Placed: Vinny


© 2016 Kerry Blue Terrier Foundation

Rescue Coordinator: Kim Applegate 

Original Rescue Write-Up

I'd like to introduce My Cousin Vinny. He hails from the Show me State, and he has a lot to show. He is a love bug and a shy young man who is currently being fostered in St.Louis , Mo with two Lovely standard French Poodles.
All the dogs are getting along just fine in the backyard but Vinny doesn't know how to play. That could change with time. He is on the small size with natural ears and a tail that is very curly.

His foster mother reports that when she picked Vinny up Saturday morning he looked at her with those brown almond shaped Kerry eyes that said love me, pet me and take me home. He is on the small size for a Kerry.

Vinny is 6 yrs old Kerry-mix, a rather chunky boy, who loved his kibble a bit too much from what his Foster Mom tells me , so exercise is a must right now, to get him into that true Kerry shape. He is good natured, quiet, crate trained and leash trained. We are not sure how he is off leash as yet.

Vinny will probably be ok with older children but he prefers a quiet home. He doesn't mind being left alone for a 8 hr day , but he is a Kerry after all and does require exercise. He does love his people and would really rather be with you. A preferred home would be with someone who is home during the day to exercise him and he will require a fenced yard.

If you would like to give this big love bug some attention, and heavy petting, please contact me.
