Hi everyone! My name is Blue (although I am really more of a luscious honey in color- the only blue you will find on me is my collar that I currently don!) I am a beautiful blend of Weimaraner and pit bull. Despite my stunning good looks, I was surrendered to the NYC animal shelter because my previous owners didn’t spend time teaching me good doggy manners. They didn’t take the time to walk me or get me the exercise and mental stimulation I so desperately needed, so like any guy with my puppy charisma, I became destructive in that home. Everyone at the shelter loved me, I was well behaved and was able to show off my big boy doggy skills, like “sit” and “give paw”. My charm wasn’t enough to keep me off the dreaded “to be destroyed” list though. I got sick, and they were going to kill me for that.
Thanks to a wonderful lady who saw my potential to be an awesome canine companion, I was rescued in the nick of time. She knew how much I love all people (kids too! But because I am not so great yet with curbing my exuberance with people, I should go to a home with older kids that can withstand my effervescent personality and charisma). If you let me, I will sit in your lap and smother you with my glorious doggy kisses!
I am a very smart boy who knows sit and stay (I take treats ever so gently!), I am housetrained, but I do like you to stay with me in the yard while I “do my business.” My leash manners are improving, but I still pull with excitement when I see other dogs out on my walks. I haven’t quite fallen in love with my crate, I would rather be on top of it than in it, but I am learning that it isn’t such a horrible place to be since it keeps me safe. I would do best with a patient person who is willing to continue to work with me on these things so that I blossom into a well-mannered adult.
Some of my favorite things are frozen raw beef bones, going for car rides, playing tug with my ropes, and wubba kong toys. Oh, and when you have to leave the house, I would appreciate if you turn on classical music for me to listen to, it helps keep me calm.
I would love to be a part of an active family who can get me out on hikes, or I can definitely be a great running partner! If you have other canine members of the family, a meet and greet would be in order. I am charming, loveable and ready to be your best friend! Please ask about me today! Hugs and wags, ♥ Blue
