To all Kerry lovers.
If you can offer Ben a place in your home and hearts then please get in touch with the rescue on the email address below.
Ben was put in a private kennels 3 months ago by his owners; only for them to ring the kennels last week and say they no longer wanted him back. Ben is currently being signed over to us for rehoming.
Ben appears to be good with other dogs (though in true Kerry style likes to be vocal at them when in his pen) and is a really loving and friendly boy. We don't believe he has ever been around children and so he will only be rehomed with over 10's as a precaution only.......no other reason.
Ben is up to date with vaccinations and the Kerry Blue Terrier Rescue will ensure he has a full veterinary check up before rehoming.
Whilst little is known about Ben and that the Kennels are taking great care of him; no dog deserves to spend Christmas without a family and so we would please urge everyone to help by sharing him to try and find him his loving forever home before then.
If interested then please email the rescue.

This is the stunning 4 year old Roah who is currently looking for her loving forever home. Roah has been in foster now for 3 weeks where she has made huge progress.
She is absolutely lovely at home; very affectionate, loves fuss and cuddles and is now playing with toys. She particularly likes small soft toys and has a tendency to cheekily steal the cushions off the sofa.
Roah also likes to help with all the household chores; cooking, washing, bedmaking and vacuuming and also goes in the study to help Martin with his work..... a real 'shadow' and loves to be wherever you are.
Roah is a really loving girl who's full history is unknown but she is now making good eye contact and looks to the fosters for guidance - something she didn't do when she arrived. She is a really quick learner. Roah sleeps on her own in her bed in the kitchen at night with no problems, she likes the car and is fine being left on her own for a while if you have to go out.
Roah now walks beautifully on the lead so long as there are no 'doggy' distractions around but she still is fond of other dogs or being introduced to them. She loves people and with the right family who have some patience and are prepared to manage and work with her socialisation she is going to make a wonderful addition and companion.
Roah really deserves her loving forever home. If you're interested in offering this stunning girl a home as part of your family the please email the rescue for an application form. firstname.lastname@example.org
The imaginatively named Kerry was in a rescue centre in Dorset when Mark found her for us. At over 10 years old she had already been rehomed once, hundreds of miles away, and sent (yes, sent not taken) back as ‘too aggressive at the vets, and unable to bond with a new owner’… and that was after just one week!!
After some long conversations with the rescue centre, and with some sterling support from Mark, the rescue agreed that they would consider rehoming her to us if we went to visit several times to ensure compatibility before taking her. As the 6 hour round trip was physically difficult, they finally agreed that if we spent the day there, and Kerry and my existing dogs were ok together, then yes, they would let me take her home the same day… Phew!
So we set off down to Dorset with Moya the 13 year old Jack Russell and Freddie the 10 year old lurcher, still unsure how they would get on and if it would be a wasted journey, but absolutely committed that we wouldn’t take Kerry home if any of the three dogs were going to be too distressed after their introductions.
With some trepidation I went to meet Kerry alone at first, and was delighted to see such a waggy tail and happy little dog. Despite her age and health conditions (untreated Dry Eye means she has limited vision now, and cysts and lumps and bumps everywhere!). Introductions to Moya and Freddie (and of course Graham, my partner!) went better than expected and we all spent the rest of the afternoon in the Sensory garden, with all three dogs running around happily together. In true KBT style Kerry put Fred in his place when he got too boisterous, but he took it well considering.
This is the adorable Flynn, an 18 month old Kerry Blue Terrier boy who is looking for his loving forever home after a far from perfect start in life.
Flynn started his life being chained up outside before being put up for sale on a selling page. He wasn't sold and soon found himself in a rescue kennel.
Sadly he didn't enjoy the kennel environment and someone thankfully stepped in and offered him a loving foster home where he currently is homed.
Flynn is a really loving and energetic boy who is looking his loving forever home. Whilst in foster he will continue to be assessed but he is currently looking for a home where the owner can spend some time to continue to socialise and train him.
He needs to be homed as an only dog or with a larger female (pending successful meet and greet) and with no children under 10.
Flynn is currently in the Republic of Ireland and will ideally be re-homed as locally as possible but transportation can be arranged for the right home. suitability checks will be carried out
The photo on the left below is how Flynn came into the rescue. He has now been groomed, neutered, vaccinated and has no known health issues.
Flynn deserves a loving family who can show him lots of love. If interested please contact the rescue and we'll pass on your details. email@example.com
This is the stunning 4 year old Roah who is currently looking for her loving forever home. Roah travelled nearly 500 miles to get to her foster home where she continues to be assessed for behaviour and temperament.
Roah is a very loving girl who's full history is unknown. She is happy sleeping downstairs but as soon as she sees the fosters in the morning it's fun time. She goes bouncing round the house from room to room jumping on the bed and certainly makes them all laugh. She's a real character.
Roah came to us as a girl who dislikes other dogs and under foster sadly this does appear to be the case though she has had a sniff without issue of few dogs. It appears that she has had little socialisation in the past.
She is a happy girl who loves a walk and has been great with all members of the foster family especially their 18 year old son. Whilst she didn't initially show any interest in toy play she is slowly getting to know how to participate.
Roah needs an experienced forever home with someone who can shower her with love and continue with her training and socialisation. The home also needs to be dog free and with no children under 10.
