Entered the shelter as a strayA volunteer writes: Handsome Blue starting wagging his tail as soon as he saw me approach. His eyes looked up imploring me to take him out next. There is no resisting this face so out we went. Blue was all wiggle butt as we waited for the elevator, letting me know how excited he was to meet me and make new friends. He ‘went’ as soon as we were out the door so is likely housetrained. Blue walks nicely on the leash checking up with me as we walk. His coat is a beautiful gray with white accents and gray polka dots in the white. Handsome boy!! Blue posed for his photos like a pro making wonderful soft eye contact. As I whistle he tilts his head for better focus – love that concentration! Blue is a low key kind of a guy, only coming into my lap when invited and then nuzzling his head as close as he could. He lay quietly as I stroked him, paws curled up, head tight in my lap. He is soooo delicious. As we walk, and then stop to ‘talk’ some more, Blue gives me a full body hug, face smiling at me gently. Blue cries in his kennel; he needs a new family to love and take care of. He is easy to be with, gentle and sweet and will make a wonderful BFF. Please ask to meet him and give him that chance. Blue. He’s waiting.Formal behavior evaluation: “Experienced/No children: Blue pulls on the leash. He was sociable toward the handler during the assessment – soft body, waggling tail. Blue was calm and relaxed during handling. He was distracted, focused on objects in the room rather than the handler during the tag test. Blue ate faster, was stiff and very difficult to push out of the food bowl, but did not growl, snap or bite. He took the toy and rawhide away, body language was stiff. Blue rushed in quickly during the dog-dog test, but showed no aggression.”AVAILABLE FOR DIRECT ADOPTION at the Manhattan Animal Care & Control in NYC (326 E 110th Street, New York, NY 10029) (shelter website: information on HOW TO ADOPT please view our note:
