Meet Rigel (Blue Star) A.K.A Blue boy!!!! Rigel is a 17month old blue merle pup. He is neutered and up to date on his shots. He is crate trained and house broken. Rigel can be a little shy when meeting new people and is a little skittish around new environments. He is getting much better and recovers very fast, Rigel was not getting enough exercise in his previous home due to an illness and didn't get along with the other dog in the house.

Rigel can be a little pushy when he wants to play with other dogs and he wants to play all day. He is getting along with the other dogs in his foster home and is quickly learning which dogs want to play with him. Rigel is also learning how to settle in the house when he is not crated. He picks up cues from the other dogs when it is time to grab an antler and find a comfy spot to sit and chew. He also loves to snuggle up with his foster family for some loving.

Rigel is looking for a family who will have the time and energy to keep up with him. He loves walks, playing ball and chasing other dogs. He is super fast and can run for hours. He will pick up a ball and play by himself when no one else is available to play with. His new family will need to go to obedience class with him. He does know some commands but we are still working on his consistency.

Rigel has seen the cats in his faster house but has never stopped long enough to show any interest. The cats usually hide in the basement so he has never meet them face to face.

Rigel did live with children in his previous home and has meet a few in foster care and has done great with all of them.

Rigel is waiting for a family who is ready and eager to take on his sweet, silly active personality. He is being fostered in CT.
