Oliver has been adopted on January 1, 2017.
Ollie is a 9 year young, neutered, purebred Kerry Blue Terrier in good health who was rescued by the Foundation from a puppy mill.
He is coming back into Foundation rescue because his owner is having health problems and can no longer care for him.
Oliver is being fostered in Georgia and is under evaluation. He is getting along with other Kerries in the foster's home.
We feel like he would really like to be an only dog.
A home with a fenced yard would be required and someone home with him during the day would be a big plus in Oliver's book. A retired couple with Kerry experience would be ideal.
This boy has been confined in the home for a while and is very much enjoying the opportunity to be "out and about" with more freedom. You can simply see the smile on his face in the pictures.
If you are on the East Coast or live further away but would be willing to make arrangements to meet with Ollie while considering him for adoption, please contact the rescue coordinator listed above. Oliver will not be shipped without a face muzzle to avoid any meeting issues.
April 7, 2016 Update
Ollie is doing great in his foster home! He is getting along with other Kerries, an 8 year old boy and is a people person. The foster reports that he only “wants to please” and stick close to family members. Because he is a slightly nervous dog, we think Ollie may do well in a home with a laid back female, or a home where is someone is home most of the time to give him the attention he craves.
Ollie needs to put a little weight on but we feel like he would be ready to go to a new forever home in May.
Could this handsome guy be the Kerry you are looking for! He would like to have his own people.
