Over 3,000 People Have Said No To Adopting This Dog


Blue was surrendered to the RSPCA in May 2017 when his owners could no longer take care of him. He’s a sweet, high-energy pup soon he was adopted by a loving family.  The shelter staff was over the moon. But several months later, Blue was sadly returned because the family said he was too strong for them to handle.  Now poor Blue has been waiting for his forever home ever since.


Blue has been in the care of the RSPCA for what seems like forever but actually, it’s been close to 300 days. Over 3,000 people have passed through the shelter and every one of them said no to Blue. No one can understand why he’s being overlooked.

“If you want a dog to go and sit and have a cuddle with, all the staff here go and sit with Blue,” Zoe Barrett, center manager at the RSPCA’s Suffolk East and Ipswich branch, said in a press release. “He is a real favorite for all of us — we absolutely adore him and just want to see him settle into a long-term home.”

“Blue is incredibly playful, so he has a lot of energy when he’s playing and running around, but he’s usually pretty calm otherwise. He wants nothing more than to hang out with the people he loves and get lots of treats whenever he can. ”

“I am a trained photographer and have taken pictures of Blue to try to help him find a home; he has been the cover photo on our Facebook page for months and has been advertised in our local media, but still no one comes forward,” Barrett said. “We’ve tried to enlist the help of other animal centers so new people can see Blue, but everywhere is so full that hasn’t worked either.”

Blue’s family is out there they just need to know he is here waiting.  If you are that family please contact the RSPCA so Blue can come home with you.
