Kirby is a Welsh Terrier we adopted from K9 Rescue
in the fall of 1997. He was a stray they told us they saved from
the pound and so they knew nothing about his past. Kirby is in
good health and we think he's about 7 or 8 years old. I believe Kirby
may have been abused before he came to live with us. Whenever I
would reach down to pet him, we would flinch and pull away from my
hand. He was also very aloof and didn't like to be cuddled or
petted. That was then! Now, Kirby is a very sweet and loving
dog who believes the world revolves around him...and he's right!
He loves to play with his toys and splash around in his pool during the
summer! Like your typical Welsh Terrier, he will protect his
territory (our yard) by barking like crazy but once your inside the
fence with him, he will try to give you big, sloppy wet kisses!
Kirby loves to spend as much time as he can outside no matter what the
weather sniffing things and barking at falling leaves. But he also
is content being cuddled on the sofa or sleeping on the afghan on the
loveseat. He used to love to sleep and cuddle with his buddy Max.
