Shots Up to Date
Blue is an approximately 1 yr old 50# tri-color Australian shepherd possibly Basset hound mix, who needs to gain another 10lbs. Blue was part of an unwanted litter in southern Indiana. Once the littermates got older, they started roaming to the interstate, so animal control got involved.
Blue was not very socialized with people, so was at an Indiana foster home for a month before coming to Rover Rescue. He went to his first Rover event last week and despite being nervous, by the end of the event his tail was up and wagging. Blue also enjoyed all the hugs and pets!
Blue is at the puppy stage of stealing shoes, chewing paper and books and counter surfing. He follows his foster brothers outside and loves playing chase and wrestling with them. With gentle encouragement he does go outside by himself and he will also follow his foster mom when she goes out. Blue might do best in a home with a confident canine playmate.
It's unknown how Blue will do with cats but he rides well in the car and will enter the car with gentle encouragement. Blue likes being massaged, which is easy to do since he's got very soft fur. Blue will need a gentle, patient family who can continue to build up his confidence.
Blue is neutered & up to date on vaccinations. If you feel that he might be a good fit for your family, please call Margrit at 630-820-1584. The adoption fee is $225.
