Looking for a best friend?  Blue loves his people and wants to spend as much time with them as he can! Food is his second favorite thing; he is highly food motivated so training comes quickly if you have treats.  He does not let being a tripawd slow him down; he enjoys being outdoors, going on walks, running and playing with his doggy foster brother.  Blue is a true heeler with a high herding drive and tries to herd smaller animals and humans if not trained to use his instincts elsewhere (like with a ball).  For this reason, we are recommending that he join a family without kiddos so that there are not a lot of littles running around and causing his instincts to go into overload! 

Blue can be a little nervous at first with men but warms up.  He loves to chew, so appropriate toys are a must!  Blue is good with other dogs and enjoys family time together but can get a little jealous of others (again, just like a heeler!). Blue would probably do best in a home as an only dog or with another dog who is more laid back than he is about sharing toys and attention; he wants to hog everything sometimes! 

Blue is house and crate trained and does great once he figures out the routine.  He truly is a sweet boy who just wants a forever family of his own!
