A dog’s soul can determine his or her destiny. In Blue’s case, her spirit led her to a new life.
Notable dog rescuer Valia Orfanidou was driving by a Greek beach with her pets when she spotted a white and light-brown stray gliding alongside her vehicle.
Every time Orfanidou returned to the beach, she would see the well-tempered dog.
The stray was homeless and seemed unsatisfied and alone. While some abandoned dogs would hide in fear, she would walk right up to humans, hoping for some kind of attention.
The dog’s yearning for love hit Orfanidou hard. The rescuer decided it was time to provide her with all the attention she needed.
Orfanidou took in the stray and named her Blue, a reference to the calm shore where she was found. Blue was kind, quiet, and relaxed, which made it incredibly easy for her to get adopted by a family in Poland shortly after she was rescued from the beach. She joined the family’s pack of eight other rescue dogs to begin her new life, full of warm company.
Blue had a certain quality about her that caused Orfanidou to believe that she was meant to serve a bigger purpose than just being a family pet. Her kindness made her a great therapy-dog candidate. She could help humans with disabilities live in comfort.
According to a video posted on November 22, 2016, Blue will begin delving into the service-dog industry to see if it is right for her.
Hopefully Blue can put her rare personality to good, widespread use.
