Please meet Captivating Connie! Connie is a gorgeous 11 month old Kerry Blue Terrier. Sadly Connie joined us when her elderly owner was unable to look after her anymore. Is Connie the right dog for you? The Kerry blue Terrier requires an experienced owner that knows how to manage a challenging, intelligent dog, with all of the Terrier traits. They are notably very kind and gentle with children, and so a good fit for families with children of virtually any age.
They require lots of exercise and interaction with their families, and do best when they have a job to do and a role to fulfill, such as a working role, or participation in a canine sport. They are not among the easiest of breeds to own and manage, but are infinitely rewarding and very loyal when the balance is right. They are bright, intelligent dogs, that can be a challenge to train. They are prone to stubbornness, and can be unruly when they are full of beans, and so catching and retaining their attention is vital for successful training. When properly trained and managed, the Kerry blue is quick, tenacious and bright, and is a good fit for roles including dog agility, herding, and obedience classes. The Kerry blue terrier needs to be able to both play and run off the lead, and be walked on the lead several times per day, they are lively, energetic dogs that like to be outside.
The Kerry blue terrier is an active, lively and spirited dog. They are very loyal dogs once they have bonded with you, and are also good with other people and almost universally gentle with children, but they can be problematic with other dogs. They are bold, confident and can be stubborn, and may not be a good pick for the first time dog owner, or those who are unfamiliar with the traits of the terrier. They like to be active and have a role to fulfill, and require plenty of both mental and physical stimulation to keep them happy.
Connie is quite the regal little girl, she walks beautifully on the lead, nose down sniffing everything in sight!! She is house trained, she loves her food and walks, an active home is a must for her! Connie is a gentle little soul, she is a darling with not a bad bone in her body. She loves other dogs on her terms but can be bossy so would be best as the only dog or with a Kerry experienced owner. She is very much a little shadow, follows me everywhere and loves to snuggle up on the bed with me at night time. She is not destructive at all and is quite content being left for short periods. Connie travels perfectly in the car, because it almost always leads to an adventure!
This lovely girl would make a fantastic addition to any family as she is a lovely cuddly loyal companion. She is fine to live with children 6 years plus.
Connie is spayed, and chipped, fully vaccinated she is flea and wormed.
