Blue Jean

If you’re wondering how I got my name, that’s one of the few things I can tell you about myself. GPRA named me Blue Jean for my beautiful Husky-like eyes! Oh, and I also know that I am too thin. However, everything is new and scary, so eating while acclimating to my new surroundings is not a priority. Give me a little more time, and I will relax and make up for lost meals. The first time my foster mom took me outside, I hid in the first corner I found. And, when she brought me inside, I claimed the bathroom as my safe space. Since the door is always open, I hear my foster mom and brother talking. They always stop to pet me and say hello when they walk past, which helps to build my trust.
Here’s a list my foster mom wrote for me to share.
Things I learned in my first 48 hours with Blue Jean…
1. A severe thunderstorm with raucous hail and pounding rain is a non-event; a car passing the fence while Blue Jean is outside is terrifying. (Those things humans call cars are bizarre.)
2. She’s curious but not brave enough to follow through yet. (With time, my Pyr confidence will begin to shine through!)
3. Since she knows what “outside” means, Blue Jean seems house trained. She is also starting to respond to her name. (Blue Jean is a cool name. Thank you.)
4. Treats serve no purpose. (As I settle in and get more comfortable, I am sure healthy treats will become one of my favorite things.)
5. She’s wondering if she can climb or jump my seven-foot fence. (GPRA recommends that adopters carefully monitor their new Pyr’s outside time.)
6. She will probably be fine with other dogs and cats yet be timid and scared of noisy or super active kids until she settles in. She will thrive (slowly) with a quiet, patient, and experienced dog family.
7. She can lift the very tip of her tail into a possible, barely noticeable, nano-second wag. (With time, patience, and love, my tail will be wagging a lot more.)
Pyrly sweet and trying to be a brave girl, Blue Jean EmojiEmoji
