This is Blue, who, along with his 2 other brothers, recently received a fenced-in yard, courtesy of Fences for Fido located in Portland, Oregon. This is a wonderful group of people who volunteer their time to build fences for dogs who would otherwise remain tethered/chained - day in and day out.
Being a 24/7 outdoor dog is not an ideal situation for any dog, but being confined by a chain and being outdoors is cruel and unsafe for the dog. Fences for Fido provides the safety of a fenced in yard for the dog(s) and sturdy shelter from the elements. Yes, the dogs get a new doghouse to replace their usually shabby one!
Here is a bit of information about Fences for Fido:
