Loves her bath! Enjoys walks. Likes to follow her person around and to be petted and get butt scritches. Travels well in the car.  Sweet quiet personality. Is crate trained and sleeps either in crate or on her bed. Valerie loves to just lie on the couch next to you.


Valerie is blind in one eye and may bump into your leg is she is walking next to you. However she sees just fine with the other eye. She has very few teeth left but eats just fine with her food softened with water or chicken broth. She has part of one toe amputated because of bone infection but is cancer free and walks  even better now after removal. Valerie sleeps a lot!!!

Ideal home would be with someone who is home most of the time, has no other animals, and no small childen around all the time. 

Valerie is reported to be very sweet and although not a lap dog, she will lie quietly next to you on the couch for hours. Until the recent falling out between Valerie and the other Kerry girl in the house, Valerie got alone with all the dogs in the home. She still gets along just fine with the others. 

Other Dogs: No

Cats: Maybe

There is no experience with cats. We suspect if the cat left her alone, she would leave it alone but have no first hand knowledge of this.

Children: Maybe

Valerie is a senior lady so her age should be respected. There is no experience with children in her current home but it is possible that a well-mannered child would be okay with Valerie.

Valerie has many of the "senior" things: she is blind in one eye, she has only a few teeth left, she has had part of one toe amputated, she sleeps alot but overall she is a sweet lady who just wants to be part of your life and be petted. 

If you are interested in VALERIE, please fill out our Adoption Request Form (ARF). For more info, contact Stephanie Moore,

If you can't adopt, please consider becoming a Kerry Angel.
