Jiggs ... is ready for new adventures

Jiggs is a wonderful young energetic neutered Kerry boy that came to the Foundation through an owner surrender. Jiggs was an only dog throughout his first 2 years but a series of family changes found himself moving from Washington state to California with his owner and joining a family with 2 boxers. The adjustment to a multiple dog situation proved too much for Jiggs and his lady owner put Jiggs up for re-homing on the pet adoption website . The quick eye of a Foundation volunteer saw Jiggs and reached out to the owner immediately to see if KBTF could offer a Kerry savvy foster to Jiggs who was showing signs of dog aggression in his current situation and could end up in a worse place if someone not knowing the Kerry temperament were to try take him. Jiggs is now with his "foster" family in Northern CA who are reporting he is a happy healthy boy with a very bright future.

Finn -
Finn is a 5 yr. old neutered male living in Victoria, BC. He came from (what I consider) a disreputable breeder, arriving at his new home at 2 years of age emaciated, untrained and fearful. He adjusted to his new family with no problem, integrating into their lives smoothly and accompanying the male owner on every possible outing, including sleeping under the dentist chair during an appointment!
Unfortunately, Finn was attacked by another dog on a walk and as a result has become so much more fearful that he is showing dog aggression. The owners have worked closely with an experienced trainer but with much heartache admit they are not in a position to give him the amount of training and management he will require.
This is a lovely dog… for the right owner. He is loving and happy, in great health, and though not food motivated, he loves his toys. He will not be considered for any but the most responsible and experienced owner who can work with him daily on his fears, and manage him in public with confidence.
Finn needs to be an only dog in a home with no children.
If you can offer this boy a chance to be your best friend, please contact Linda Grisley at lgrisley@shaw.ca
