Blue came to us from the pound. He has been in the pound kennels for a while. 
Blue is currently at our Worcester kennels, where he is settling into our daily routine. He is a gentle shy boy, who takes a while to get to know you, but once he does, he loves you. He loves being told he is a good boy, and he really snuggles into your legs. 
Blue hasn’t really shown any interest in toys or balls, but this could just be due to the kennel environment. He likes the meaty treats and is very gentle when taking them from you. 
Blue is a dream on the lead, he walks by your side, and you don’t know he’s there. He loves a good sniff in the hedges and undergrowth. We walk Blue on his own, due to him being reactive. Kennels are quite rural, so it’s lots of lane walking and he has been a good boy walking past dogs in their gardens. We have given him lots of space, and he has walked past the dogs happily. 
Blue has only travelled a couple of times with us, and every time he has been a good boy sitting nicely. 
Blue has had X-rays recently, as he appeared to be a little stiff whilst out walking. The X-rays show the possible onset of arthritis in his chest/tummy region. The vets have prescribed Galliprant, which he takes once daily, and this seems to have helped. All of the other results from his bloods and full health check have come back normal. 
He has possibly had a bad experience at the vets in the past and has been known to try and bite, therefore will need muzzle training for all vet visits. He is a super boy who has not shown any aggressive behaviour in his interactions with the walkers in any other situation during his time with SSC. 
Health issues: 
Blue has had a full health check including blood screening, all of this has come back healthy. Upon arriving with us, Blue did have a upset tummy, but we feel this was due to lots of changes for him. He also appeared to be lame on his back leg, he has had X-rays, and the vets could not identify anything irregular in his back end/hips. He is currently being tested by the vets for arthritis, once we have a clear picture, this will be confirmed. 
Ideal home: 
The type of home we would like this lad is one where someone is home lots, he is a quiet shy boy, and would thrive on a one-to-one relationship with his special human. 
Due to coming in from the pound, we are unsure if he is house trained, or if he would cope being left for periods of time. Blue would 100% need to be the only pet in the home, and will need 6ft solid secure fencing, as we know he is dog reactive and would definitely react to cats and small furies. Ideally in a low dog populated area. 
Standard information: 
Blue is vaccinated, microchipped and neutured. 
He is in kennels in Worcester, but can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, pending a successful home visit. However, any adopter should be willing to travel to meet him twice where he is at that time. 
There is an adoption donation of £120 for Blue and all money donated goes directly to helping all the Senior Staffies in our care.
