Blue’s compromise

Last month, I wrote about Blue, an elderly Australian Cattle Dog who was facing an uncertain future in Elephant Butte, New Mexico.

This week, it was announced that the town officials had reached a compromise with Blue’s nominated owners (Blue was abandoned early in life and formed connections with some residents more than others).

Blue will be exempt from the city’s leash law, but his owners will need to keep him contained on their commercial property through the use of an electric fence.
