Blue is a beautiful, easy-going blue heeler/black lab. He is a very loving boy who enjoys the company of other dogs, and loves people and children. He loves to go on walks, and is very gentle on the leash. He loves his crate where he sleeps at night, and will even go in his crate on his own for some quiet time during the day. There are a few things that excite Blue, and one of them is that he loves to eat, and he is currently working on waiting patiently for his food (he typically barks and jumps at the dog gate to show his excitement!). He also gets very excited when he sees a cat, so the foster is not quite sure if he is good with them, or not, due to his excitement. Blue is wonderful with kids, and has had excellent behavior around his fosters’ four year old little boy. He is a mellow boy who loves to be massaged, brushed, and loved on. He will bark if there is something to bark at, such as a motion light going on in the middle of the night.
Blue’s only negatives are that he chews when he is bored, and will at times eat what he chews on. He is still young, so hopefully he will grow out of this. A good potential adopter for Blue will be someone/family that can spend quality time with him each day as a full member of their family. He is house trained, and does not “mark” outside. He will cry/whine in his crate if he ever needs to go potty during the night, which is rare. Blue is a sensitive boy who thrives on positive reinforcement. He sits, shakes, and often will sit straight on his hind legs hoping for a treat! He is adorable! Blue is around 2 years old, neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.
