Jiggs

Dog aggressive ... food aggressive ... too much enery for previous owner in current situation. Showed some separation anxiety by barking when owner was away. Had been allowed to misbehave without correction and now exhibits some poor habits which due to his young age should be easily rectified.


Jiggs

Found on RescueMe website by Sandra Scott who reached out to owner to introduce the KBTF and what it could do for Jiggs. The owner aggreed to have KBTF find Jiggs a foster home. Brad and Heather Taylor visited and assessed Jiggs to verify his breeding and temperament. Calls went out to potential fosters near Jiggs ... one was located that same day (thank you Eileen Andrade) and arrangements were made for Jiggs to relocate to his new foster and likely forever home. His first vet visit found him to be a sturdy healthy Kerry with a long bright future ahead of him. Good job everyone!


Jiggs

Smart, playful, typically stubborn and not fond of being "told", likes going in the car until he spots a dogs, like toys but literally rips them to shreds, loves tummy rubs, requires lots of attention, can be clingy, likes to put his head in your lap, he'd be thrilled if you pet and rubbed him all day. He's nice to other people unless they had a dog. Loves to jump over things ... might be a good agility dog.

 

Update:  Jiggs is blossoming into a fine typical Kerry boy now that he's gotten used to his new surroundings and is guided by his firm Kerry savvy foster parents. He'll make a great companion dog for the right owners.
