Border Collie / Australian Sheepdog / Collie?

Black & Brown




Hi, my name is Blue, and I was named that because I have the lightest blue eyes anyone has ever seen. I came to the Rescue with my 4 pups who were only about 6 weeks old, but I am such a good Mom that I even accepted another puppy as my own. But now that they are starting to be adopted, it is now my turn to find a special family of my own.

I am a gentle and low energy girl who loves to be around people and get hugs and be petted. I will actually stand up on my back legs to hug you so you will pay attention to me if I have to. 😆

I look like a larger girl, but most of that is my medium-long hair as I am really only about 50-60lbs! I loooove being brushed, and the volunteers have been working on getting my undercoat thinned out since I am no longer living outside and trying to fend for myself. I am not really sure how to play with toys yet, but I do love to walk on a leash - and I am very good at it. I stay right beside my person, and I rarely pull on my leash. I will run beside you if you run, but I prefer to enjoy a nice relaxing walk in nature - or even taking a break to enjoy laying in the grass.

I am also quite smart as I have figured out how to escape from the rescue out the front door a few times...but I just go outside and sit to watch the cars go by. I don't want to run, just see what's going on. 👍. I am learning some commands very quickly - like sit and shake a paw. I do not care for being in a kennel as it causes me anxiety, but I love to lay at the feet of the volunteers if they are working on a computer. I take treats gently, and really just want to find someone who I can snuggle up with and feel loved. 💖

My ideal home would be one where someone is home most of the time, and enjoys a laid back lifestyle where we can enjoy each others' company either going for a walk, or curl up to watch a movie. A nice fenced backyard where I can lay and feel safe would be fabulous, and even another relaxed dog friend would be amazing! I would do well with a home with children, and since I really don't bother with the cats at the rescue, I also suspect I would be okay living with a cat. Of course, I cannot guarantee that until I give it a try. 🐱

If you think you might have a place for a gentle, affectionate and very loving girl in your home, please send in an application to adopt so I can meet you! Maybe you would like to take me out for a day of adventure so we could get to know each other better?

Paws & Kisses, Blue 🐾
