Raves for Rylie

Rescue Coordinator: George Hanna

Fostered in Georgia 

Original Write-Up

Rylie is a 7-year old neutered purebred Kerry Blue Terrier.

Rylie has just been brought into rescue. He is in the process of being evaluated. We do know that he needs a home without another dog and without small children.

Rylie loves car rides and swimming! Please see the cute pictures of this Kerry boy swimming through the duck weed!

Updates will be available during the process of evaluation.

If you would like more information on Rylie, please continue to check this site or contact Rescue Coordinator George Hanna at or 912-202-0678.

May 11, 2015 Update

Rylie is having lots of fun in his foster home. He does not know exactly how to play with other dogs but he is learning and doing well. He wants to play but does not really understand how that works. There are 2 videos below that show this guy is really getting with the program. He gets along with all the adults and the 8 year old in his foster home. We do not recommend Rylie for a home with younger children. He grumbles when the puppies jump on him but by and large, he is getting along with both male and female Kerries and older puppies. He just does not want them using him for a trapoline! He does not mind having guests and does enjoy the extra company.

We prefer that Rylie be the only dog in the household but will consider a home with a laid back female if the adopters are willing to crate him at night. He gets the night grumpies, is protective of the bed and is not overwhelming fond of sharing it.

Rylie moved to his forever-home in Georgia.
