Foster comments: Bleu is the sweetest dog you’ll ever meet and she is ready to settle down as a single dog with a kind and loving dog savvy family. Bleu has had a tough start to life, being passed from house, to shelter, to foster, to foster, but she is ready to find her fur-ever home. Bleu is an angel inside the house. She loves to sleep, cuddle, nap, give kisses, sleep, get belly rubs and cuddle. She especially loves cuddling up in her dog bed. She is fully housebroken, very respectful of house rules, loves any attention she can get and is sweet and kind to everyone she lives with. The only indoor training Bleu is in need of is learning when to stop giving kisses, as kisses are her speciality. Basic obedience commands are also a work in progress, but are coming along nicely (sit, stay etc). Bleu is a low-medium energy gal and benefits from multiple short walks a day. She’s lost some weight since her journey to Canada began, and she’s now a slimmer, trimmer and healthy 64lbs.Bleu has had a rough start in life being passed from home to shelter to foster which shows her resiliency given she is a very sweet, loving and happy dog. Bleu is very well behaved and calm inside a home. She is house trained and nondestructive so although she is crate trained she does not need to use one. She is extremely affectionate, loves to give kisses and thoroughly enjoys belly rubs and lots of attention. Bleu is friendly with all people she meets. She is smart and knows basic obedience like sit and stay. She is a strong girl and is working on her leash manners. She is medium energy and requires several walks a day. Bleu use to get along well with other dogs until she was attacked by another dog causing her to become leash reactive to them. She gets excited when she sees another dog and will pull, lunge and bark. As a result a strong confident handler who has previous dog experience would be best for Bleu. She needs a person/s who will be dedicated to ongoing training and who will be committed to helping her overcome her reactivity to other dogs so she can one day get back to where she was before she was attacked. This is going to take time and patience on behalf of her new family. Bleu would do best in a home where people will put her needs first and will walk her during times when she does not encounter a dog on every corner or who will take her places where there will be a lesser chance of interactions with other dogs until her reactivity has lessened. Bleu truly is an amazing dog and she will make an incredible companion. There really isn’t much more you could ask for in a dog and whoever is lucky enough to adopt her is going to be very happy they did.
