I hope to pet sit this blue dog from Southlake one day!!
Check out this dog my friend spotted at the Southlake Oktoberfest last weekend! If you look closely, you’ll see blue color of the fur, and this is not Photoshop. This half dog half wolf is naturally blue/white and is absolutely gorgeous!!
I’ll make sure to be on a lookout for that mysterious Blue Dog in Southlake! My pet sitters would go crazy to pet sit this beauty! I would probably have to do a raffle! LOL
From what I’ve been reading, blue color is the rarest form of dog coat colors. It happens as a result of dilution of one or more mutations within melanophilin gene. Then you add the fact that this dog is half wolf, and it becomes probably the most sought after pet sitting assignment of all times!!
It is the second time I encounter a wolfdog in my professional pet sitting career. A mix of a wolf and a dog (hence wolfdog) gives the pet owner the best of both worlds: the animal possesses loyalty and friendly companionship of a dog combined with charismatic looks and character of a wolf.
The experts warn wolfdog owners to be on a constant lookout when handling these animals at home, as one never knows how much wolfie-ness these pets have inherited. Those with higher “wolf-content” will be harder to train and may exhibit aggression tendencies. Some may need to be moved to live outdoors.
This gorgeous blue dog my friend met in Southlake was the most perfect pet one can dream of.
It was a dog to the core of its personality, yet the blue coat color and the charismatic look were like a magnet to anyone who loves pets. And as a professional pet sitter, I can’t stop thinking about the beautiful blue dog in Southlake just hoping that my phone will ring one day and we’ll get to pet sit him! That would definitely be an assignment of a life time!!
