Blue is a male Beagle-mix who is 4-years-old.

Blue is a 4-year-old Beagle mix we have up for adoption via the Empty Shelter Project! Learn about Blue’s journey from his perspective. 

Hi. My name is Blue. I found myself at ESP just in the nick of time as I was about to be euthanized at a high-kill animal shelter. During that first car ride out, I had no idea where I was going. I did not know then, it was just my first taste of newfound freedom. Ever since that day, I have been so happy to be out of the shelter; and during that time, I’ve rediscovered what it’s like to be a dog.
My foster mommy and daddy have worked very hard with me, and I’m happy to report that I’m doing very well with my potty training and have even learned to sit! We’re still working on shaking hands, but they think I will learn it in no time. Here are some of the things I like about living in a home. I enjoy cuddle sessions on the couch and playing fetch. I especially like tennis balls, and I would chase them all day long if I could.

Blue is very affectionate and also loves to play!

Not that I’m very high energy. I enjoy playing just as much as the next dog, but I also love being by my foster mom’s side while she’s cooking, or snuggling with my foster dad while he’s watching the game.

However, as much as I love my foster mom and dad, I can’t help but feel like I’m missing something. I know they love me, but it’s just not the same. I want that feeling of unconditional, forever love. The kind of love you get when you know you’re in your furever home. I want a family to call my own for the rest of my days. I want nothing more than to be able to give up my foster mom and dad so that they can save another life, because they have more than saved mine. They gave me a chance that no one else wanted to give.
One more thing. I must be an “only child.” This means I have to go into a home where there are no other animals. However, I do great with people, adults and children alike!

While Blue is not great with other animals, he gets along well with children.
