Hi, my name is Blue, and I came as an Owner Surrender. My owner could no longer care for me because of their medical issues. I currently weigh 30lbs.

The first time I met my foster mom and dad, I jumped right into their arms and gave them all the kisses! I like to play with them and my toys as much as possible. I LOVE chasing balls, playing fetch and catching balls, or just holding them in my mouth. I recently met a squishy ball, and -- I tell you -- that thing is the bomb, and you can see me over the moon in my profile picture! Don’t get me wrong, squeaky toys are okay too!

When I’m done playing, I am okay to chill on my own for a while. My previous owners said I adore my doggy play dates with other friendly dogs; I would love some canine buddies to run around and play with. They also took me on a very long car ride they called “vacation” and said I was a really good boy. Going new places is fun!

At night, I know the word “bed” and start to act a little shy and hide. That being said, if you lead me to my kennel, I will sleep there with no problems. And, I do my business outside very quickly! That's a bonus during these chilly days.

If you are looking for a super friendly, playful, cuddle bug who is always up for an adventure, I could be your dog!

If you are interested in getting to know me better, please fill out an adoption application . An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
