Blueberry is both dog-friendly and people-friendly. She participates in morning Play Groups, running around and wrestling with a group of 5-10 other shelter dogs. Blueberry also falls in love with every person she meets, and would play and roll around in the grass all day if she could. In person, she is absolutely over-flowing with happiness. She is a loving, and wonderful dog who just deserves a chance.

She does have an injury or possible cancer that has left her incontinent. She will need her bladder expressed twice daily (very easy to do) and will need to wear diapers or be set up in an area where she can be cleaned easily when she defecates. She has to have a foster to get here and be seen by our clinic. Depending on what the vets find, she might be considered a hospice case and would just need somewhere safe and loving to live out the rest of her days. Can you take her in?

According to a previous foster through her other shelter, "Blueberry has been amazing at home. She needs to go to an experienced dog-owner, but it does not take that much extra work to care for her. She has been great with all the big dogs, with no issues. She is curious about the little dogs and tries to play, but I keep them separate because they are older, and she is a rough player. She acts just like a normal doggy with some special needs. I express her 2-3 times a day (Morning, Lunch, and Bedtime). She is inside/outside (with doggy door access to a "dog room). I put a diaper on her before bed and change it in the morning. Since she spends most of the daytime roaming outside, I leave her without a diaper, and go through 1-2 the couple times she decides to hang out inside. I am out of the house a lot of the time with a full-time job, and she has been fine left alone outside with the other dogs. She has been very happy, friendly, and loving while she has been here!"
