|Another surprising addition to our rescue family, Kerry was pulled and at Crossroads just about the same time we found out about her. Our thanks go out to Joe, who went to the shelter, met Kerry and just had to save her.
After having some time to settle in, Joe wrote and said: "I really like this dog. It took a few days for her to come around but she came out of her shell. She's a little on the soft side, not shy. Seems to be good with the other kennel dogs beside her. Good Eater." High praise from a man of few words. Thanks to Joe for taking photos of Kerry.
Kerry will be making her way to Phoenix on Sunday. She is spayed, needs to be updated on shots and will be microchipped (if not already) prior to adoption.
UPDATE 2/11: Kerry has arrived in Phoenix. We had been told that she was "small dog aggressive," but her introduction with Annie went off without a hitch.
UPDATE 2/12: In a word, Kerry is a sweetheart (so far). Joe was spot-on with his appraisal of her. She's "soft" but not timid; LOVES petting and affection of any kind. We had been told that she was not good with small dogs, but her introuction with Annie went off without a hitch, with both dogs walking off as if to say, "I really don't care." We're looking forward to getting to know this girl better.
UPDATE 2/19: Kerry saw the vet today for her initial exam, weigh-in and vaccination update. She weighed in at a hefty 79.8 pounds! Everything else checked out just fine. The vet guesstimated her age to be 2+ years and pronounced her in good health. She does have some tartar on her molars that we're hoping will be taken care of now that she's on quality food. She's also obviously been chewing on something hard as her teeth show unusual wear for a dog her age. All-in-all, Kerry passed her physical with flying colors. She is now up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped and ready to steal your heart.
UPDATE 2/20: We kitty tested Kerry today and she did great. She first met Kevin (being held in someone's lap). She was then shown Hermione (who was on the floor and dashing to get away); Kerry did not even try to chase her. Good girl!
