Kerry Keeps her Crown at Col. Potter!

Written by a CP Intakes Coordinator

Kerry, a beautiful 7 year old Black Brindle Female


Please welcome little Kerry, the most Beautiful New Girl in town!  Kerry is 7 years old – for one more month only, but a girl needs to be discreet about her age, you know.  Kerry is a wee Black Brindle at 15 pounds, but she’s a real bombshell, with a definite mind of her own, we are told - and that’s good, ‘cuz that’s the way, uh huh, uh huh, we like them!

Kerry came from loving owners who themselves had just rescued her from being a casualty in a family dispute.  They gave her sanctuary and intended to give her a fine home.  Once she was safe, unselfishly, they realized that with two other dogs at home, a big personality like Kerry would not get the attention she needs.  Inquiries were made and these caring people surrendered Kerry to the care of Col. Potter.  Kudos to them!

Kerry is 15 pounds and full of spirit!

Kerry is named after County Kerry in the southwestern region of Ireland.  The name comes from an ancient tribe named the “Ciar.”  In old Irish, Ciar means black or dark brown.  Now isn’t that appropriate for this Black Brindle beauty?? Foster Mom is delighted!

So here she is, a new member of the Col. Potter clan!  Let’s give a big hearty welcome to Kerry, our very own Rose of Tralee!


"The moon through the valley her pale rays was shedding, when I won the heart of the Rose of Tralee"

Oh to win the heart of a Rose of Tralee - the most beautiful girl in the whole of Ireland, or the world, such is the spread and appeal of this prestigious Irish beauty pageant inspired by that very song.  The Rose of Tralee is held in the Co. Kerry town of Tralee each August and has evolved into much more than a simple beauty pageant. From its humble beginnings in 1959, when the festival budget was just £750, the Rose Of Tralee has emerged as one of the most important events in the Irish social calendar, second only to St Patrick's Day for its colour, fervour and popularity. And that's only because St Paddy's Day is declared a public holiday!

Col. Potter Needs a Few More Runways for our Beautiful Contestants!
