Billy

       

Meet Billy. He’s a 3 year old goofy boy who was rescued from an abandoned house in the city last summer. Billy is currently being boarding at a local facility because we do not have any open fosters. He is house trained, neutered and fully up to date on his vaccines. Billy does walk nicely on leash, but he is a very strong dog, so an appropriate harness is recommended. He can also be leash reactive at times, which can make walking in crowded areas a challenge. We’d prefer a home with a fully fenced in yard, so that Billy can run and play without the anxiety of walking with other dogs around. He really just wants to RUN and play like the goofball that he is.  If you are into hiking or running, he’d be perfect for you! We have started training classes to work on his manners and obedience skills. He knows most commands, like sit, down and stay/wait. Billy does have some separation anxiety, so a home where he isn’t left alone too long is best and a heavy duty crate will be needed. Most of all, Billy wants to be around people. He will need to be the only dog in the home, he is doing well with other dogs near his kennel and crate, but does show some reactivity while on leash. Billy loves frozen PB stuffed Kongs and soft pillows. If you are interested in our amazing boy – Apply Today!!
