Personality Color: blue

Blue dogs are easy going and easily adapt to new situations. They are generally calm, may be playful but not overly exuberant, and will likely be happy doing just about anything with you. These dogs will be a good fit for just about any home, and would be great for first-time dog owners.

Aubergine spent some time in foster, here’s what the humans have to say about her:

We had such a wonderful time fostering sweet Aubergine for the past 3 days. She did great with kids  (9yr and 12 yr old). She is both playful and snuggly.

She warmed up to us and was very affectionate right away. If you pet her, she loves to lean on or even sit on you and gives lots of kisses! If you sit with her on the floor, she’ll roll over for a good belly rub.

She didn’t bark unless there was a delivery person at the door.

She slept through the night on her dog bed next to our bed.

She happily went into her crate and stayed there with no issues while we were gone for a few hours.

She is totally house trained. And is very calm and mellow inside the house.

She did well on a leash walking around the neighborhood, but would sometimes get overly excited when greeting other dogs. She can pull hard and is strong when she wants to be!

She loves chasing squirrels and balls in the yard. She definitely got her zoomies out off leash and is super agile and fast!

She also loves chewing on hard toys. She played an amazing game of hide and seek with her rawhide. She took it on a tour around the house, then hid it somewhere, then after a while would go find it and hide it again somewhere else. What a clever cutie!

Aubergine is very food motivated and seems willing to learn commands. She can get a bit jumpy when excited, but did fine around our 9yr and 12 yr old kids.

Here’s what some other humans have to say about her:

Aubergine is an amazing dog. We had the pleasure of having her for 2 nights at our house, and she was extremely adaptable to her new surroundings. She loves people and other dogs and was incredibly tolerant around our 19 month-old son (she let him pull her skin without reacting and gave him kisses!). She is easy on leash and does not pull at other people, dogs, or cars. She went on both runs and walks and while she enjoys running, she is just as happy to walk and sniff. She loves to cuddle and to chew on toys. While she would enjoy a playful dog companion as she likes to play, she likely would also be happy as an only dog if she could interact with dogs through playdates. In one word, she is easy. We were taken aback by how well she does in the car, house, and outside. She is crate and potty trained, and she is good at recall. She also has the cutest snore when she sleeps and snort when she sniffs! On top of all this, she is a beautiful girl. She deserves a home where she can get lots of love and exercise.
