Are you looking for a four-legged friend who has endless love and snuggles to give? Well, then Blu is your guy! This six-year-old boy is eager to please, easy to train, walks beautifully on a leash, is potty and crate trained, and works on obedience like a show dog! Blu would do best in a home without young children, and he does startle easily. He came to BDR in rough shape but is well on his road to recovery. Blu is on anxiety medication. His foster mom is spending time working with him, and his progress is remarkable. Blu is a higher energy dog and even a little bit of a trickster! Initially, we thought Blu was wholly deaf; he is hard of hearing, has a ruptured eardrum but can hear some things (including commands).
He does have anxiety which is being treated with trazodone. We saw a behaviorist for this, and it made a small impact. She thinks he may be recently blind and thus the anxiety.
Blu tested well with other dogs at the shelter and has lived with other dogs. He is currently being treated for a skin infection (staph) and has some dental concerns. He is receiving excellent vet care, and he is a favorite among staff at the vet. He handles new situations well and would be a perfect adventure buddy!
He knows: sit, stay, lay down, wait
Walks like a show dog on a leash. Has excellent manners (doesn’t bark, waits for permission before getting on the couch, has been here 3 months and ZERO accidents in the house or crate).
Does well in the crate.
Knows how to run on the treadmill.
He is such a good dog! He and I have trained every day and he will make someone very happy.
Blu is forever in our hearts.
