Blue, our Adoptable Dog of the Week, will make every day happy for a lucky family. He’s an adult Dachshund and Border Collie mix from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Blue is already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Blue’s Tale:

Meet Blue!

He is looking for a new home as his mom had to move out of state and couldn’t take her animals with her. He is great with dogs, cats, and kids. He attaches quickly to his house companions humans or animals. Blue is a high energy guy – he loves to run and run – and never gets tired of playing. That’s why he’s the perfect brother to another dog.

Blue likes to go to the dog park, and go for long, long walks (currently goes for 3 mile walks and could easily do 6). He can be left alone in the house for short periods of time as long as he is with another appropriate dog. Blue really does not like to be crated much, and if he is, he needs to be in the crate with another dog (he sleeps in his crate at night with his doggie buddy). You’ll find him to be a good watch dog, alerting you to potential dangers… but he is all bark, and no bite!

If you’d like to adopt Blue, please visit People’s Anti-Cruelty Association.
