Blue will be joining us tomorrow from another rescue who do not specialise in large breeds
so it was thought it would be best if she came to us.
Blue is from the pound.
She is 16 months old and has been living with 7 other dogs. She gets on with all the dogs
apart from one in the house - although they all run off lead together when out with no problems.
From her current foster mum:She is exceptionally friendly and loveable and so affectionate with people. She isn't food or toy possessive
- we have both taken food and toys off her, and so have the other dogs, without any signs of aggression.
She hasn't been destructive or dirty in the house and cries if she needs to go out for a wee or a poo. She
has been sleeping in a bed in the kitchen with Reilly, one of the other dogs. They do have a bed each, but are usually in the same one when we get up.
my husband has been taking all seven dogs (Blue and six of our own Labradors) out together without a problem.
They have all been off lead together without a problem. Blue's recall is good and if possible it would be good
if she could keep the name as she is getting used to it. She didn't have a name and so we called her Blue.
Blue will be speyed tomorrow and have dew claw removal
A good friend is like your favourite bra: Offers support, .

Blue is very high energy and needs an owner that can cater for her physical and mental energy needs. Blue has been over taught the Paw command so will give it as a matter of course when every something is asked of her. Blue will need work on dog manners and taught that dogs are not all play toys. All these behaviours were shown at the time of this assessment conducted by Shaun Aldridge (Ruff Diamond Dog Training); however these behaviours may change in different circumstances.
