July 12, 2016 Update
Lady's owner was an 86 year young person who could no longer take care of her due to health concerns. Lady has never been to an obedience class or had a teeth cleaning. She hasn't been walked/exercised in the last year. Lady was released to the KBTF on 7/4/16, where she was picked up from previous owner's home in CA and transported to NV, where she is being fostered and assessed.
Lady seems to be very happy and loving, constantly wagging her tail. She also is a snuggler and thinks she is a lap dog. She took to the male foster parent right away. She can be stubborn at times, as all Kerrys are but nothing that can't be overcome in obedience classes. She is also fearful of loud noises. She has nipped at people in the past but it was when someone came uninvited on to the property.
Good with other dogs; healthy and current on vaccines. She has been great on a leash, when running or walking. Lady is not reactive on leash to other dogs or bicycles.
There were a couple issues between Lady and the resident male Kerry in the foster family. She was constantly "bugging" him for attention. They seem to have worked it out and now play together.
Lady has not been around children so it is unknown how she would get along.

Very often, a person who fosters a Kerry, falls in love with it. This is what happened to our Rescue Coordinators in Nevada, Matt & Sue Buehler. Lady was adopted by her rescuers. A lucky lady indeed!
