History/Foster Comments:

Blue was found as a stray up North in Manitoba and brought to Ontario during our northern rescue mission trip.
Blue is trusting & comfortable once he gets to know you. He is initially cautious and hesitant with new people and will require some time to open up and show his true personality.
He is still very much learning his manners and obedience and can be jumpy/mouthy which is why a large breed experienced home would be best for him. He is a big boy and quite strong!
Blue shows signs of having separation anxiety and gets distressed when his people leave. For this reason, we think he would do best with someone who works from home or is home most of the time!
