Azul in Kim's backyard in November 2015Azul's story: Azul's family bought him from a pet store as a cute little puppy. As he grew older (and bigger), the family realized they didn't have enough time or space for him, so Azul spent most of his days in the backyard. That was fine until the family learned they were going to have a baby AND that they had to move from their current home. While Azul's mom was packing her things, his "grandmother" called us to see if we could take him in. The following day, she dropped him off with his food, bowl, crate, and dog bed.

He has been in a few foster homes and has done well in all of his home environments. Physical and health notes: Although fully “mature,” Azul is a very active dog and in excellent physical condition.
