We currently are in desperate need of foster and forever homes for a number of Kerry Blue Terriers who are looking for loving homes in the UK and Ireland. Three of these dogs are currently in boarding kennels and whilst they're being well loved and cared for it's not an ideal situation and is also a costly one for the rescue and they really need to be in a home environment. They have been in kennels for 2 months now.
The rescue covers all costs with regards to foster homes and all you need is the ability to show the dog lots of love, exercise and to work with the rescue over their care.
In addition to the dogs above who are looking for foster homes we also have a number of other Kerry's currently looking for their forever homes. They can all be found at
We are a nationwide rescue and for that perfect home we can transport the Kerry's anywhere in the UK or Ireland. If you would like to register your interest then please contact the rescue at firstname.lastname@example.org for an interest form.

It is with a heavy heart that Murphy's owners have asked the rescue to find 7 year old Murphy a new home whom they have had for 4 years.
Murphy is Dog Aggressive and his owners have taken many steps to ensure that he and other dogs are safe and this must be clearly understood by any potential owner. He is also uncomfortable around young children
Murphy is a very chilled out dog when he is with you cuddled up for the evening, he will make anything his chin rest and makes himself comfortable in his basket or on the bed.
If you work during the day or leave him for hours on end he will not be happy and will wait in the window for you, but he won’t wreck any furniture and will be very happy to see you when you return.
He responses to sit, down, off, up, here, come, wait (stay), paw, choose, no, leave, drop commands and takes good instruction from a strong leader.
Murphy enjoys toys but there is one condition to adopting Murphy that is you also take his stuffed crocodile soft toy, it is his most treasured toy in the world he even had it when he came to us.
Murphy is exceptionally territorial, he will bark when he hears noises and protect you with his life. If you invite anyone to your home, he will demonstrate his bark. With introductions you must instruct him away and sit whilst leading your guest in, once approved he will be very chilled and accept many belly rubs from them.
After you get to know Murphy he will be very tolerant of you, you can relax, rough-house or play chase, but he is not good at fetch.
Murphy will only be rehomed as an only dog and with no young children and needs a firm leader but he will shower you with love and become the most amazing and loyal boy you could wish for.
If interested in offering Murphy a long part in your heart and home then please contact the rescue for an interest form on email@example.com
The 30th September 2017 saw the end of the Kerry Blue Terrier Rescues first financial period.
Right from the outset we felt that it is important to be transparent on how the Rescue is operated and funded and so it gives us great pleasure to share with you our first annual reports.
If anyone has any questions or queries regarding the reports then please contact one of rescue team members below.

Joe Moriarty is going to be running the "Perkins The Great Eastern Run" on Sunday 8th October.
He is running this half Marathon on behalf of The Kerry Blue Terrier Rescue, to raise funds for this wonderful breed who come into rescue.
The Rescue is very close to his heart because of the fondness he has for this amazing breed thanks to the Kerry's we have owned over the years.
Joe has only been running and training for this half marathon for less than 4 months and what started off as a joke between him and his friends soon became a serious thought for Joe.
So please donate something, doesn't matter how much, to The Kerry Blue Terrier Rescue and support Joe on this great event.
Thanks all. Xx
The Kerry blue terrier rescue UK are delighted to announce that all Kerry's rehomed through the rescue will now come with 5 weeks free pet insurance - Regardless of the dogs age.

Inspired by Christine Forrest's husband Tommy, Andrew Rattray is going to do a similar thing to raise money for the Kerry Blue Terrier Rescue.
Andrew is going to be 60 on September 29th, and to mark the occasion he's decided to climb Scafell Pike in the Lake District........and he's going to take Eve Somers's Kerry Blue Jimi, who is 7 and a half, with him.
Scarfell Pike (England's highest mountain) is 3,209 ft above sea level and so the hours Andrew and Jimi spend hill climbing on Dartmoor will hopefully pay off.
Jimi is now classified as a veteran, so the two of them hope to get to the top and back down safely and raise as much money as possible for the Kerry Blue Terrier Rescue.
They will be travelling up to Cumbria from Cornwall on Andrew's Birthday, and he plans to climb Scafell Pike with Jimi on Sunday October 1st 2017.
We will keep you updated with all the plans and preparations as they happen.
Please donate something to the Kerry Blue Terrier Rescue, and show your support for their wonderful efforts on behalf of all Kerry Blues in need. XXX
Well it's fair to say that when the rescue started out we believed that we would possibly rehome approx. 10 kerrys a year in the UK given how they are such a vulnerable breed.....sadly we were wrong.
Since May 2016 we have rehomed 30 Kerrys (August 2017) and have 5 more currently looking for their loving foster/forever homes.
The Kerry Blue Terrier is an amazing and rare breed of dog who once owned have massively loyal supporters. They are a brilliant family dog and love (and need) lots of stimulation and exercise and some can be feisty with other dogs but will always show you an amazing amount of love, companionship and loyalty. Once you've owned a kerry, their spirit never leaves you.
We are currently looking for loving homes for this amazing breed. If you are interested in finding out more then please contact the rescue on firstname.lastname@example.org
