Additional Details:

Blue is a rare blue, relatively large male greyhound. He is a beautiful, deep gray color with a gorgeous blaze of white on his chest. Blue is a wonderful boy and will make someone a great pet. He is well-accustomed to living in a house and has not had a single accident in his foster home. He shows no interest in chewing on things and only shows passing interest in tempting items on a countertop or table. Blue listens very well to his humans and quickly responds to a firm "NO!" as well as a happy "let's go" or "come along, Blue".  Blue loves people! He wants to wrap his body around everyone who approaches him and seems to think that everyone wants to approach and pet him. He has that fantastic greyhound personality that loves and wants to be around people but is not needy and readily goes to his bed when his foster mom is busy. Blue loves to bury his head in people's laps and hug them with his body for attention and petting. This is really a wonderful boy! Blue does great on a leash and loves going on walks. He is nervous when walking around traffic but does not panic. He has been nervous traveling in a car in the past, but is doing better at that now. Although he still seems a little nervous in a car, he is now asks to go in the car and is doing much better riding in a car.

Blue has had an unusual life for an ex-racing greyhound. After a short period on the Palm Beach Race Track, he was, unfortunately, in a hoarding house for a few years with around 40 other dogs and cats. He has a lot of scars from living with all the other dogs so we think he was picked on. Although he is not aggressive with other dogs approaching him, he can be very defensive if another dog starts something. Because of this, we think that Blue will do best in a home without small children or other dogs. If you are interested in Blue, let us know and we will tell you all about his background. Blue is a wonderful, happy boy who bounces a little with happiness and then quickly settles down for hugs and petting. He will be a wonderful addition for the lucky family that chooses him.

Blue was adopted and returned several times after we got him in addition to the times he had been adopted and returned to the initial group that placed him. Blue's foster mom decided that Blue was just meant to stay with her and adopted him in August of 2014. Blue was with her for nearly 2 wonderful years, before he passed away in June of 2016. Rest in Peace Blue! We are sorry the rest of your life wasn't as good as the last 2 years.
