Bleu the rescue boy so happy now he is safe from harm

Labrador cross Bleu was dumped on the streets and struggled to cope in that competitive world.

His skinny frame was seen regularly walking around the village all alone. He was scared of humans but he formed the habit of attaching himself to one woman in the area.

He often followed her home and would tag along behind as she gave her own dogs a walk in the morning and evening.

He then vanished for nearly a week before the woman heard he had been found lying close to death in a garden after being hit by a car. He also showed signs that he had been attacked by other dogs.

He was rushed to a vet where he received emergency treatment and after he recovered, he was parceled off to the dog park for a period before they decided to put him back out on the street.

The woman he befriended was shaken by this decision and so she arranged to take him herself and foster him while she sought a permanent home for him.

Bleu is brilliant around the home and joy to be with

She then asked for help in finding the handsome Bleu a permanent home of his own.

Bleu is now living with three other dogs and three cats while in foster care and he has settled down very well.

He has a very soft gentle nature and he is just grateful for this second chance of life, and he is so trusting of humans.

He has been living in the house and we suspect this was a new experience for him. At first he got into the habit of chewing everything in sight and ripping up his beds.

This issue was quickly addressed through chew toys and discipline and as a result he has become an excellent house guest.

He is now great in the home and great with the other dogs. He is still a little wary when meeting a new dog for the first time which is understandable given his experience of the dog attack.

The look of love is in his eyes

He can bark if approached by a new dog while on the lead but after initial introduction though he is fine with them. This anxiety will ease over time as he begins to feel more secure.

He is fine around the cats although he can try to chase them from time to time. A sharp word and he soon remembers his best behaviour.

He loves people and greets strangers with a smile and a waggy tail. He loves his walks and is great on the harness.

Bleu is such a happy boy now that he is safe

He loves his chewy toys, bones and to sleep in a big bed.

Most of all though he loves his cuddles and kisses and his favourite time is having a snuggle with his human on the sofa.

He also adores his time on his walks and the chance to run around and play. In short he is an absolute joy to have around.

Bleu has recovered from his accident but he still shows signs of weakness in the back leg that was injured. He can lift it if it is over exerted. We are monitoring it with our vet and while we hope this limp will improve it is possible he will always stay this way.

It doesn’t stop him racing around though and does not hold him back in any way.

Bleu is such a handsome young man

He is coming up to a year old and will be around 14-15 months old by the time he is ready to travel to the UK.

The task now will be to find just the right home for him and a home where he can get all the cuddles and care he wants and needs.
