Blue is a male lab mix, about 6 years old and 71 pounds, who was originally adopted from CARES a few years back. His family unfortunately had to surrender him back to us due to a change in living circumstances. Now this AMAZING handsome boy can't wait to find his new forever family!
Blue does great with all kinds of people, young and old, is fully housebroken, and has done great with all the dogs he's met here, too! He has been in one of our foster homes for the past couple weeks (since he seemed extremely stressed out in the shelter environment), and this is what they have to say about him:
"Blue is a super sweet and mellow fella with a heart of gold! When he came to us he wouldn't eat and seemed to be missing his prior family quite badly. After some fun hikes, road trips, and river swims, Blue has really bloomed. The beach is his happy place. He loves to run, swim, and fetch sticks. He can do short hikes but wears out after about two miles (he is getting more stamina all the time!)
He is fully house-trained and will whine at the door when he needs to go out, and he gives one bark to come back in. He knows "sit", "shake", and "down". His favorite treats are spam and Canadian Bacon, but he has recently started eating quality dry dog food and is getting much more energy back.
Walks are his favorite thing in the world. He gets SO excited when you say "walk" or take out his leash, but he also loves to cuddle on the sofa or lounge in the sunshine. He sleeps well all night and is not destructive. We have taken him on trails with lots of other dogs and he has done well with all people and canines. We have not had him around cats.
Blue will need lots of love and patience settling into his new forever home. He is on a temporary medication to stimulate his appetite, but hopefully as he gets into the groove at his new home he won't need this.
Blue is a fantastic companion, young at heart, and so incredibly sweet!"
Blue is an incredible pup who will make an incredible addition to just about any family, so call CARES today about meeting the fantastic mister Blue!
Blue is neutered, microchipped, flea treated, dewormed, and up-to-date on his shots. His adoption fee is $150.
