Blue is a gentle creature. She is slow to warm up, but earning her trust is well worth the wait.
She lives in a foster home with a cat, a dog, a three-year-old, and a baby. She shows a curiosity for the cat, but no aggression. She even tolerates an occasional ear or tail tug from the three-year-old. And she loves stealing kisses off the baby.
She is housebroken, but not very good at telling mom and dad when she needs to go out. She does great on a leash and LOVES daily walks through the orchard. However, when she catches a scent, be ready to hold on tight! Her tail starts wagging and she is on a mission.
It has taken two weeks for her to adjust and she is still coming into her own. She was very nervous at the start. Her tail was tucked between her legs and she had the saddest look in her eyes.
She refused to walk up steps or stairs and had to be carried by mom and dad. So any potential adopters may need to be prepared to carry her until she adjusts. (She weighs 65lbs.) We suspected it might be arthritis, but she is doing much better. So much better that she has learned to jump over our baby gate to say hello to the cat!
She has no interest in toys or treats--not even peanut butter in her kong toy! We have tried. She is just content lounging on the couch and being lazy.
She is very low maintenance and would make a great family dog.
Blue is currently being fostered in Gardners, PA but can be moved to MD.
She is 9+ years old, but still has so much life and love left in her.
She is fully vetted. She has had all her shots. She is on heartguard, glucosomine tablets, and a flea/tick preventative. She is also microchipped. All she needs is a forever family to spend the rest of her doggie days.
