We noticed Blue when one of the volunteers was driving by on her way to work. There in the cold morning frost was Blue, chained to a tree and helplessly staring out into space with no shelter, his water dish just beyond the reach of his chain. After some investigating we found out that he was being fed only occasionally by a neighbor who took pity on him, which is why he was so emaciated. Thankfully his "owner" surrendered him to us and Blue has been grateful for his freedom ever since.
Blue is a complete and absolute joy!!! He is so happy to be with people and, true to his breed heritage, he is very smart . . . which makes his chaining even more painful to think about. As you can imagine, he is loving life beyond a 6' chain! His foster mom says, "He is very social with other dogs and does well on and off leash in dog park settings. He comes when called and always circles back to check on me when we are at the park. He is becoming such a great companion. " He loves to run around with the other foster dogs at his house, and he is even learning basic obedience like to sit and stay -- he is highly intelligent. Also true to his breed characteristics, he herds the other dogs and sometimes the little kids at his foster home so we feel he is best placed with older kids in the middle school and teenagers who are less tempting to try to "round up". He bonded with very quickly with his foster parents who welcomed him with open arms so we know he'll bond very quickly once he is with his Forever family. He just wants LOVE!! Blue is highly intelligent and very active, so he will need space to run and play or someone that is a runner, or the opportunity to do obedience and agility so he can get the mental AND physical exercise he craves. He loves to run around the back yard and play chase with all the other dogs and he's a voracious learner as his foster family adds more tricks to his repertoire. Blue is about 9 - 10 months old, he weighs about 35 pounds and he is a very healthy boy. We think he's a Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler-mix because of his coloring, his size and his high intelligence.
