Bleu -Ready for Adoption- North West!

It absolutely breaks our hearts to see one of our dogs come back to us. While we know not every new chapter can lead to a happily ever after it still makes us unbelievably sad to welcome them home.

Bleu came back into foster extremely shut down and nervous.

With gentle reassurance and loving encouragement Bleu has very slowly begun to open up into the most wonderful and happy little bulldog who comes alive whilst playing.

She thoroughly enjoys a good squeaky toy, and her favourite toy is a ball.

She will happily bring you the ball when she wants to play and leave it for you to throw.

Bleu has really enjoyed having the resident pug’s company while in foster.

She can pull at the beginning of her walk, in excitement but calms quickly and walks well alongside the resident dog.

Of course, she is a typical bulldog and can be stubborn and has an epic sulk when she wants to, whilst trying not to fall asleep.

Dogs name:



3 years old.

Can live with children:

Yes, older dog savvy Kids.

Can live with dogs:

Yes, smaller laid-back dogs.

Can live with cats:


Current location: Wigan, North West. 

Things to be aware of:

Bleu does like her own space when relaxing or sleeping and any children in the home must understand to give her space and leave in peace. Any young children must be supervised as Bleu has the potential to knock them over, especially if startled.

Bleu can be afraid of new noises this will stop when she is settled in her new environment.

Bleu is also afraid of plastic bin bags, mops and hoovers, she will run away, to try and hide. But over time this should calm down with gentle reassurance.

And as a typical Bulldog Bleu isn’t a fan of having her face, ears and folds cleaned but with patience and gentle reassurance she will allow you to clean her.

Any resident dog must be laid back, calm with no possessive behaviour towards toys. New owners must be prepared to introduce them slowly and we can guide them through it.

Bleu has the occasional head tremors the charity will advise her new owners how to deal with them.   

The ideal home:

Bleu needs a family willing to give her all the time and patience she may need.

She is best suited to a calm laid back family with older dog savvy children. One she can enjoy long walks and adventures with, and also snuggle up in front of the fireplace for relaxing evenings.

Children of an age where they understand her needs and will leave her alone when resting or sleeping. Bleu appears to get on better with smaller dog breeds in the home but is just as suited to life as an only dog.

Other comments: 

Bleu really is such a lovely dog she desperately needs a family to call her own.

She wants to be loved and will shower her new family with love and affection in return.

She just needs some time and patience and her own space in the beginning, and she will soon make a lovely pet, given the right circumstances.

A little of Bleu’s story below,

Bleu has found her way back into the arms of GBSR UK.

As you will remember, Bleu was rehomed in October last year but sadly, after her meds were stopped and her diet changed, Bleu’s behaviour started to change.

It was clear she was becoming very unhappy, and she was no longer the chilled out, happy wonderful Bleu that we rehomed.

RBU means rescue back up and we provide this for the life of any of our GBSR dogs.

Thank you so much to our fabulous volunteers Sharon and Wayne for road training Bleu.

Beautiful Bleu is now being cared for by her new foster fur sister, Babs the Pug and her new foster dad Wayne in the North West.

Bleu has lived with a dog before, but Wayne is taking introductions slowly to alleviate any further stress for Bleu.

Bleu will be having a vet check in due course. So without any further ado please give this gorgeous young girl, Bleu a very warm welcome back into the folds of her GBSR family.

Poor Bleu, she had really been in the wars.

As you know, we are trialling CBD oil for her mild Epilepsy, and she recently had 2 days free. But yesterday she had 2 incidents so today her dosage will be increased. If anyone has used CBD oil for their dogs, you will know it’s essential to gradually increase the dosage until we get to a point where it works.

This poor girl was spayed and her wound started weeping blood through the dressing within hours of being home so the following morning she was raced back to the vet there was something very wrong!

That same day, Bleu underwent further surgery and another GA to repair the wound as the tissues under the skin had breached causing a rupture.

Fast forward and her post op check-up was not the news we were expecting

Bleu’s abdominal wall was so weak, again her internal organs are breaching so she needs yet another operation, this time using mesh to hold her organs in place. She really hadn’t had the easiest of times. But throughout it all she had such a beautiful nature.

Bleu is a shy and nervous young girl who appears to enjoy the company of women more than men as she will often shy away from them, not in an aggressive way. She is loving and playful and enjoys her chew toys (she is a toy destroyer), playing fetch and being chased. The children in her foster home hug her and play with her without any problems, she loves the attention.
