TO BE KILLED 2/21/2019
Bullying isn’t just person to person. Bullying can happen to animals too. BLUE was cruelly teased & taunted by a teenager who would wave his toy in his face & not let him have it. Blue deserved a better life. He at least deserved a family who taught their bratty kids to not tease the #dog
& be respectful & kind of their sweet, affectionate friend. This was not supposed to be Blue’s life, or his fate – abandoned at a #kill
shelter because his family failed him and didn’t care enough about him to treat him kindly. Blue is very friendly, affectionate & sweet. He is shy with new people, but once he has a few minutes to size you up, he is waggy and welcoming. Blue will need some training to help him now – calming exercises like “down stay” and “place” so he can be calm in the face of chaos or distractions. He could also benefit from learning the “drop it/leave it” command so that he learns that when a resource is taken, it is always given back. Blue deserves an experienced family who will give him a quiet, calm & structured home where he will be able to decompress, & relax…a place of love & patience & respect… Try #fostering
