|Profile Information||Everyone meet Blake!! Blake came into care with his 6 siblings at around 3-4 weeks old. He was so tiny and full of worms (yuck). He was in care for about a month when a few of his siblings started to get sick and later tested positive for distemper. This meant that Blake had to be held in quarantine for 2 months to ensure he was okay and we have great news, the long legged Moose is officially ready for adoption!!
Blake is such a happy puppy! He is fully house trained but please remember in a new environment and with a new schedule he may have to be retrained 🙂 He is crate trained and sleeps through the night. He LOVES his big brothers so Blake will need a home with another playful dog to play with. Blake LOVES his toys and sometimes forgets that all the stuffies are not his so often tries to play with out kid’s stuffies, lol. He currently lives in an acreage setting with 2 horses, 1 donkey, 2 goats, 3 other dogs ranging from 18lbs-110lbs, 6 cats, and 3 children (ranging from 8-11). Blake definitely likely to chase all things small so if your cat isn’t a fan of dogs Blake may not be a good fit, lol. He doesn’t do anything once he gets to our cats but he definitely likes to chase them. Blake has been camping (before the quarantine for distemper) and goes on many leashed walks in town. He loves to sniff everything so ensure you give yourself extra time.
Blake is very food motivated and will literally bounce his way to his kennel at meal time. He is really good at waiting for his cue before actually eating though. He knows how to sit and we are working on lay down right now. His recall is great except for when he decides that what he’s doing is more important but he loves his people so much that 99.9% of the time he comes when called. Blake likes to jump a little bit but we are working on that and he’s so smart that I believe it won’t take long for him to catch on!
Blake is a very special pup at our house and will be incredibly hard to give up but if you think he would fit well in your home please send in an application and come to meet with him. We can’t guarantee his ears will be one way or another because it seems to change with the wind, lol. He is being fostered just east of Didsbury.
