Blitz, Blitzer, little buddy – call him what you will, just don’t call this delightful nugget late for dinner! Breakfast and dinner are his favorite times of the day!

Second City found Blitz at a local shelter when it participated in the recent Clear the Shelters event. We don’t know how Blitz ended up at the shelter but what we do know about him is this: he has the happiest disposition, the best dinner dance moves you’ll ever see, and is a devoted companion following you room to room (and, yes, that includes the bathroom).  

Weighing in at 40 pounds, Blitz is a 5-year-old Border Collie/Retriever mix – a little of this, a pinch of that – blended to playful perfection. He loves being outside rolling in the grass, snoozing in the sun, or playing chase with his canine foster sisters. If you want to call Blitz, just whistle and he comes running. With a mischievous twinkle in his eye and a tail that wags non-stop, Blitz is always up for fun.

Blitz stays in his crate when home alone. He sleeps on his own dog bed at night along with his canine foster sisters. He is a sweetheart with modest needs: two squares a day, walks (loves to be outside), an occasional belly rub, and a comfy place to sleep.

Blitz is a sweetheart with looks, sweetness, and personality to spare. He will make a delightful addition to any family. Come meet Blitz this Saturday!

We love our dogs. We want happy lives for all of them and are looking for the home that provides the best fit for each dog’s individual needs. Please understand that there may be multiple families interested in this dog. Come to the show to find out if this dog is the right fit for you — it's helpful to bring all family members and current dogs.

Also, please know that the breed mix listed is simply a guess. In most cases, we don’t know their background. We encourage you to base your decision on individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on our guess.
