Bluefish may be shy when first meeting new people, but it sure doesn't take long for her to warm up to you. She'll put her head in your lap or your hands, and when you pet her, cradle her head and scratch her chin, she'll close her eyes and totally relax. It's adorable!

Now in foster care, this gentle girl is coming out of her shell. She loves her new humans and is playful and respectful with the foster's dog. She's even learning from him. She's affectionate when her foster mom comes home. She always wants to be near her, but isn't glued to her. She'll just want to crawl up on the couch to cuddle with her.

She's a slow leash-walker, sometimes pulling, but walking well. At home, she's picking up quickly on understanding "sit" and other commands. She is house-trained. She doesn't like being in a crate, prefers when her people are at home.

This easygoing, sweet girl will love a home with parents who are with her a lot and can take her on some slow walks and playtime. She'll also be comfortable with a doggie sibling. Come meet this lovable girl!
