Within hours, you will love Blue, and he will love you! Blue is an incredibly gentle, sweet, loving, very mellow 3 year old blue Doberman currently residing in Charlotte, NC. Blue is a chill boy who is very affectionate and enjoys cuddles on the couch and following his foster parents everywhere they go. He likes to go for walks and is pretty good about not pulling.
Blue greets all the humans he meets with trust and love. Not tested with little humans, yet. Blue is sweet and easy going, so we suspect he would be fine with children. Cats? Unknown. Blue is nonreactive to lizards, bees and birds. Not squirrel tested, yet.
Blue loves to squeak his stuffed bunny and play fetch with a ball. If he’s debating not “giving” the ball back, he’s fine with you prying open his mouth and taking it. No hard feelings at all!
Dobermans ALWAYS get barked at by little dogs, right? His fosters knew from experience that (as a Doberman) it was not socially acceptable for Blue to bark back or bark first. He’s responded well to reminders to not bark first or bark back. He’s very receptive to training and corrections. #dobielife
Blue might occasionally, gracefully, jump on the counter to investigate what specialty meals are being prepared in the kitchen. A gentle reminder is all that is necessary when this faux paus occurs.
Blue LOVES to be pet all over his ENTIRE body. He’s also agreeable to getting soft massages as well.
Blue will mostly just carry and squeak his stuffed toys, but sometimes he will start investigating to see what’s IN it and how it tastes.
Blue lived in a backyard breeder situation, was recently neutered, and is recovering from his final heartworm treatment, so we are waiting for the hormones to dissipate to see how he really is with other dogs.
Blue suffered some weight and hair loss due to shelter stress, so he’s been eating high quality food 4 times a day (until he’s a normal weight) and being given supplements for his skin and coat. A high-quality food and supplements will be a necessity for the rest of this blue Doberman’s life to maintain his weight and skin health.
If you’d like a meet & greet with Blue, fill out an adoption application and we’ll get you approved pronto!
