A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Friendly is Blue Moon’s middle name and with David Bowie eyes, a freckled nose and that big ol’ mushface, he’s the kind of handsome that draws a crowd wherever he roams. After some earlier shyness he’s now ready to meet and greet right at the front of his den and like most requests Blue initially refuses, with the bribe of a treat leashing him is a breeze. He’s keen to get out for a walk so he can take care of business and though he does pulls hard, he’s a good listener and will show off his ‘sit’ for a tasty reward nibbled gently from my hand and we’re told he knows commands for come, stay, lay down and give paw too! 8 years young and full of fun, Blue’s eager to play and happy to share his toys and he’ll plop his ample butt down to wait for my throw but bark to let me know that if I’m too slow he’s coming up to get it himself…then follow through with an impressively athletic jump to prove it! On the bench he snuggles tight into my side and though I wasn’t lucky enough to score any belly rubs (his former owner’s favorite thing about Blue was how he rolls over) we did share plenty of petting and even a brief smooch. Blue has shown some leash reactivity to dogs (though he plays nicely with the ladies) and we’re told he’s also scared of cats (he actually runs away from them!) so any introductions to new four-legged friends should be handled slowly and with the utmost care for Blue’s feelings on the matter. In his former life this good boy was well fed, well groomed and well loved so in an active home with plenty of the same he’ll continue to thrive and delight for many happy years to come. Blue Moon is waiting at the Manhattan Care Center with a forever home dream in his heart, will you be the one to make it come true?
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
Details on my behavior are…
3/22: When introduced off leash to the female greeter dog, Blue Moon is a bit tense, follows, sniffs.
