More about BLUE

Beautiful Blue came to Battersea through no fault of his own. He has a lovely history around people and dogs although does have a worried and sensitive side to him. Blue's previous owner had noted that he can be a bit shy and nervous with new people and we have seen this onsite.

When Blue first arrived he was worried and avoidant when unknown people were trying to handle him. He has since settled into kennel life and whilst he is still a little worried when meeting new people, has really bonded with kennel staff and is showing to be a bouncy and excitable boy who loves to play bow and get wiggly when he sees his people!

Blue has a nice history with other dogs and a solid foundation of social skills. Onsite we have seen the same playful and bouncy nature when Blue is interacting with other dogs. He did previously live with another dog where he did display some resource guarding over his food bowl. For this reason we feel Blue would be best suited to being the only dog in the home with his socialisation taking place in more neutral spaces.

Blue does have a sensitive side when it comes to formal handling showing himself at times to be quite uncomfortable with it. New owners will need experience with worried and sensitive dogs and will need to go at Blue's pace when first taking him home, in order to not overwhelm him.

Blue is a mongrel, but we believe he may be a Shepherd crossed with an Akita or potentially Husky. Some experience with these breeds would be highly desirable as to understand Blue and his traits. Blue is a lovely boy who is ready for a new chapter in his life and while he does have a nervous and sensitive side to him, once bonded he is the most loving and affectionate boy. He is sure to be the most wonderful and loyal companion in his new home.
