GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Students at a local elementary school had a special visitor Friday. He’s big and blue and loves clues.

They were rewarded for helping a homeless dog by a special appearance from Blue the dog from Blue’s Clues who read to them and visited for the afternoon.

Students at Orchard Avenue Elementary raised money for Blue, a local dog who was once paralyzed but can now walk thanks to the money they raised.

Blue is now a happy, healthy loving dog and is ready for the next stage of his life. Fourth grader Austin Rush says, "He is now up for adoption and he could use a real loving home that would take care of him."

If you would like to adopt Blue, stop by the Roice Hurst Humane Society or give them a call at 434–7337.
