About Blue (west)

Pit Bull mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Hi, my name is BLUE - ID#A4366710. I am a neutered male, black and white American Pit Bull Terrier mix, and I weigh about 64 lbs. The shelter staff think I am about 3 years old, and I have been at the shelter since Jan 11, 2020. Blue is a shy 3 year old pup who is so handsome! He knows sit, and loves his tennis balls (actually, any ball). He will self entertain with them. Blue came in so scared and was not doing well, but he has shown a lot of improvement. Older kids are recommended, as he has a rough play style with other dogs. Might be too much for a small child. Here are some notes from volunteers who recently spend time with Blue: 3/20/2020 ENRICHMENT Canine was easy to leash and pull from kennel but pulled on leash on the way to yard. Once in yard canine found a jolly ball and started running around the yard with it. Mostly ignored handler but once canine tired a bit handler was able to pet canine and canine became more affiliative. Pulled on leash back to kennel, easy return. 3/22/2020 ENRICHMENT Canine was easy to pull from kennel. Pulled hard on leash but was not reactive. Once in front yard canine explored yard and self entertained. Canine enjoyed chasing jolly ball. After a couple minutes canine became more affiliative and solicited attention from handler. Pulled on way back but easy to return to kennel. 3/24/2020 WALK Easily pulled from kennel, utilized slip leash for walk. Canine got spurts of energy and would jump up on handler but would settle and continue walking. Affiliative with handler. 3/27/2020 ENRICHMENT Spent about 10 minutes on treadmill. Got right up on the treadmill and kept a nice pace throughout time. Blue is now at risk for euthanasia due to being at the shelter almost 3 months. Please consider this handsome little man for your next furry family member. 'URGENT' If you have no breed restrictions, please call ASAP = 520-800-4633
