Blue B is a super friendly boy who arrived with us recently due to his previous owners no longer being able to give him the attention he needs.
Blue B is currently settling into his foster home in Hampshire, while he recuperates from surgery to his left hind leg. His foster parents have said he’s only been here a couple of days, but is settling in nicely, and his wound is healing well. He is a super chilled boy who loved to see his volunteer walkers every day – as this meant walkies.
He does get a little excited when he knows he’s going out and sometimes chews his lead, however he hasn’t ragged it. He walks lovely in the company of other seniors and is more interested in his surrounding than he is the other dogs.

We think Blue B would possibly be OK to be left for short periods of time, but would really love to have someone home the majority of the time. We are told he is a dog friendly boy and has lived with a calm older female for a short period. With careful introductions, he may be able to live with another dog. Due to his size we would like children to be 10 years and over Blue would not be able to live with cats or other small furries.
Blue B has received a full health check and was given a clean bill of health. He did have a large lump on his back left leg, the vet checked this out and recommended it to be removed due to its size and the skin covering it was a little thin. We have had this removed and he is recovering in foster. The vets have advised the mass was a cyst.
Blue B loves to go out for walks. He is quite strong on the lead, but is a good boy and doesn’t react to much when out and about. We are currently working on increasing the length of his walks to help him loose a little weight and increase his fitness. He really loves his walks and interaction with his walkers, his tail never stops wagging.
Up until Blue B went into foster, he had only travelled short distances with us. He has travelled in the back of the van and in the boot of the car. He has sat nicely, he was a little bit vocal, but soon settled down. He travelled to his foster home on the back seat with his foster mum sat next to him, which he loved.
Blue B had his health check a few weeks ago and he behaved amazingly at the vets. All the staff loved his calm friendly nature. He was not bothered by other dogs in the waiting area..
Blue B is vaccinated, microchipped and neutured.
He is currently in foster in Worcestershire. He 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 B and all money donated goes directly to helping all the Senior Staffies in our care.
