Meet Reilly, a young Kerry who recently suffered the indignity of being identified as a "small standard Schnauzer" when he was pulled from a shelter. We don't know about this lovely boy's background: there is a chance that he is a Kerry mix but he looks and acts like a full blooded Kerry (albeit without set ears, and with a short tail and a Schnauzer haircut). The vet thinks he is between one and three years old.
Reilly has bounced around a bit, but landed with Schnauzer rescue who contacted us. He plays well with his male and female Schnauzer friends, and has a wonderful calm temperament. He settles very quickly when new people enter his world, contentedly chomping on a bone. He is a happy, confident, crate trained little guy who quickly learns new routines and walks well on leash. He isn't dog aggressive, but does resource guard so if he shares a home that will need to be addressed.
Now, the fair warning. He was placed in a home prior to coming to KBTF, and the assessment read "He does not know right from wrong. He jumped on a table to see out our front window, undeterred by the knick-knacks that covered the table." The home also identified him as an escape artist. Our rescue coordinator observed him joyfully counter surfing and shamelessly rooting around in a bag that had dog treats and toys. If you are willing to take the risk on this reported juvenile delinquent, he will require training classes so that he learns the finer points of doggy morality.
He has the usual Kerry puppy energy, and needs a large yard in which to run. He shows great interest in barn hunting, and can even come equipped with his own rats thanks to Schnauzer rescue. He needs someone who will be home during the day, and who wants to pursue barn hunting or agility.
