Arrival Story:
I grew up in a house full of terriers--Airedales and Wire Foxes. Now that I am married, I really wanted to get us a terrier of our own, but the right opportunity hadn't yet come along. Until one day... We were posting some furniture that we wanted to sell on Craigslist. I decided to look at the "free" section of Craigslist, just to see what interesting things might be posted in there. The first post I saw said "Free 2 1/2 year old purebred kerry blue terrier to good home." I was sure there had to be some kind of mistake...or the dog was in need of serious help. Well, lucky for us, I was wrong! Later that afternoon, we brought Tara home!

She was born to a breeder in Minnesota and comes from champion bloodlines. She lived with her previous owner in Manhattan, Miami, and the Dominican Republic before settling in California, which is where we found her. She is quite the well-traveled pup.
