Bluejay is a very friendly and loving 6 year-old Flat-coated Retriever/Spaniel mix female who’s looking to make a fresh start in a new home. She came to us from an overcrowded county dog shelter with no history but it’s clear that she enjoyed way too much food and not enough exercise in her previous home. She currently weighs in at about 64 pounds, 20-25 pounds more than her ideal weight of 40-45 pounds. Now that spring is here, Bluejay is ready to take daily walks around the block to start shedding those extra pounds. She deserves a healthy lifestyle so that she has more energy to enjoy lots of adventures with her new family. Bluejay is very friendly with other dogs so would enjoy having a slim canine pal in her new home to keep her active. She has excellent crate manners so is very likely housetrained although we can’t guarantee that. Her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Bluejay. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
