About Mr. Blue Sky
Mr. Blue Sky is a dapper older gentleman who is looking for a home with people to cherish him in his senior years. You won't find this senior at an early bird special! He is too busy playing like a puppy. His favorite game is fetch. When he is not playing fetch he likes to snuggle and is very laid back.
Mr. Blue Sky is completely house broken and never begs for food. He is not interested in treats but will do anything for a toy. He never barks in the house and is friendly toward other dogs but does not want to play with them. Mr. Blue Sky is also a big Philadelphia sports fan and loves going on long walks. We don't think he should live with small children, but older, dog-experienced children would be fine. He is not a fan of cats.
He came to us very matted and dirty and to give him a head start on looking his best, we have shaved him all the way down. We expect that as a senior, Mr. Blue Sky will require regular vet care to him to ease into his twilight years in good health. At a minimum, his adopter should be sure to provide good dental hygiene and cardio care.
