Someone home all or part of the day to reinforce his housetraining
New family should consider a puppy training course to learn basic obedience
A fenced yard
You need to be sure footed as Blue is still a puppy and gets underfoot
Meet Blue! I call him Bleu Berry, Blue Boy, Little Boy Blue or whatever comes out each day. He is an 8-month-old Yorkie puppy and weighs 8 pounds now but will gain some as he gets older.
Blue is a great little guy! He loves to run outside to chase squirrels and explore the yard. He's curious and fun but being a puppy that means he will still try to chew inappropriate things so you will need to monitor him and offer toys in exchange. He eats his puppy kibble well and loves treats. He sleeps in a dog bed on the floor of the bedroom and has had a few nights in the big bed too. Blue has been around older gentle children and other dogs and seems to love them all. Remember Blue is still a Terrier puppy with sharp teeth and can get underfoot so he will require an active home ready for a puppy! He is playful with everyone! He has not been around cats.
His housetraining is going very well! Since he is a puppy, he needs to go outside every few hours to potty. He will need a family that is home to continue this work.
One of the not so perfect Blue things is that he gets nervous in a moving car. It may be just a temporary thing but on recent drives he drools a lot and has thrown up and pooped. So if you are looking for a traveling pup that is not Blue at the current time and he may never do well in the car.
He has not been crate-trained and because we like our SBRET pups to get used to them he is being introduced to it. It’s going well as long as his foster mom is there but he gets very upset (drooling, pooping etc.) when she is gone for short periods. Training continues. He can stay in a gated area or indoor expen for short periods when you are not home.
Blue is learning to walk on a leash and is doing well. It works off his puppy energy and teaches him to go potty while on the leash. This is going well but will have to be reinforced daily.
Blue is neutered and microchipped and is up to date on his vaccinations and is on flea and heartworm preventative. His adoption fee is $175.
