This is Blue. Blue is an extremely special dog in his own right as they all are. Blue is highly intelligent. He is the dog you have as partner in life. He listens. He loves fetch. He loves car rides. He loves stuffed lobster toys. He loves humans and children. He will do whatever it is you're doing. You're just feeling like lounging, no problem. Blue will be right next to you without interfering. Want to drive to Starved Rock and go for an adventure? You got it. Blue is with you. Blue needs a confident dog owner. He likes to share his intelligence with the masters as opposed to the newbies. Which I completely understand and feel the same on the topic... To each their own. Sorry, newbies. Blue is non reactive to dogs when on leash unless someone is acting out of control when then curiosity seeks us all. Blue starts training this week to be introduced to others dogs. He was originally labeled as only dog however Blue has shown much interest in wanting friends. Adopting Blue also means one on one training included. I love this dog an incredible, incredible amount. He's been my foster almost a full year. I would keep him if I thought my pack was beneficial to his success. I have a bitchy old lady and three teenagers that are constantly testing my boundaries along with theirs. In my heart this not the fit for him. Blue deserves his own life with someone who loves him and has time to make him a priority. PLEASE help us make that happen before winter. I cannot express enough that I cannot live through a another winter living a double life. I wake up in complete anxiety and just dive into a bad mood being rushed from the moment I open my eyes. I have many things I want to accomplish and many, many animals I want to save. I need my time back. Please help by sharing or contemplating helping me in some way. I would love for Blue to remain in my life with visitation rights but I need someone to open their home and hearts and not only gain an incredible, beautiful friend but help save many more lives as a result. Tomorrow is my 35th Birthday and this is what I wish... Our rescue community to help us move on to the next chapter. Please contact me for further details. Thx!
