By Animal Friends
Blue is a handsome 5-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier. When he is on leash, he may be the most well-trained dog at Animal Friends. His exceptional and impressive "watch me," "sit," "leave it," and "down" skills are due to intensive training efforts by a dedicated team of volunteers.
Through 7 months of rehabilitation, Blue learned to love and trust people. Today, he loves and is loved by so many volunteers and staff members! This is remarkable because he was rescued from a terrible situation. His bleak past caused an initial distrust of both humans and other dogs. An unfortunate accident resulted in a situation where Blue's reactions led to the death of another dog. His systematic education and current on-leash behavior makes a repeat of this unlikely, but adopters who fall in love with Blue's lovable, cuddly, kissable personality will need to make a commitment to keep him and other dogs he may encounter safe.
Blue is looking for a family who has experience with Pit Bulls or other bully breeds and who will continue to explore his appetite for positive reinforcement training. We would like to work with the person or family who adopts him to ensure that his placement will be a loving, lifelong success. Blue is sure to amaze his new family with his loving nature, his trust, and his willingness to please.
