Blue has come into the care of Homeless Hounds following the sad passing of his owner.
Blue had a terrible experience with dogs in his past life, before going to live with his late owner. This has made him understandably wary and unfriendly with other dogs. He will need to be the only pet in his new home and we would prefer him to live in an adult only home where he can feel relaxed.
Blue is a very loving and very playful boy and full of life for his age. He’s good at simple commands such as ‘sit’, ‘lie down’ and ‘give paw’. Blue loves spending time with his humans and really enjoys cuddles and naps.
After taking Blue out for a walk, one of our volunteers said… “Blue is lovely to walk. He pulls a bit at first then has a lie down when he gets tired. We passed dogs and horses today (at a good distance) and he did not react. Blue pays attention when you talk to him and takes a treat nicely. He enjoys a pet and cuddle. Blue’s got a great smile!”
Blue is great in the car on the way for his neuter and was well behaved in the vets until they needed to administer the anesthetic. He was very stressed and required muzzling. The vets believe that he is sensitive to pain and treatment in the surgery because of his history. But we have been able to soothe a small graze he’s sustained with dabs of sudacream and he’s been quite happy with us doing that. We ask that his new family understand that Blue was badly treated in a previous life and that he deserves the absolute best now with plenty of gentle care if he hurts himself.
Blue can be left home alone for a few hours without any signs of stress but he isn’t house trained, so that’s a new trick that he can learn when he comes to live with you.
In spite of Blue’s sad early years experience, he’s still a delightful happy boy. Please consider offering Blue his perfect forever home full of joy, love and cuddles
