"Blue” shows off his talents at the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home while awaiting a new home in London, England. “Blue” is one of only a few dogs who have spent their second Christmas in Battersea. Battersea Dogs & Cats Home was founded 150 years ago and has rescued, reunited and relocated over three million dogs and cats. The average stay for a dog is just 28 days although some stay much longer. Around 550 dogs and 200 cats are provided refuge by Battersea at any given time.
