Up for adoption in Texas and New England: Billy.
Billy is a one and a half-year-old beautiful black lab mix. We aren't quite sure what he's mixed with, could be a little hound or Great Dane? He has that tall lean look with a beautiful chocolate brown eyes.
He weighs 75 pounds, and has sleek black fur!! He LOVES to eat, which was helpful to put on a few pounds after coming from a high kill shelter in east Texas. When it’s feeding time he can barely contain his anticipation!
He responds very well to treats as rewards for training. He knows how to sit on command, walks well on a leash, is house trained and will be very easy to train for other commands.
Billy absolutely loves to be with his humans no matter what they are doing. He either watches closely, or lays down close by when he sees there is no food involved
for him. He loves to lay on the bed or a sofa and will snuggle with you up there if invited. Curling up with a good bone or toy is another favorite activity.
He loves to play with his foster siblings or chew on toys. He likes to chew on durable toys, like elk antlers, but also loves to pull apart rope toys. One of his favorite
activities is playing with other dogs. He really likes to roll around for some doggy wrestling or play tug of war. He has a foster sibling who is half his size, and he does
not play too rough for her.
Billy will be most happy with lots of exercise, attention
and love from a family with at least one other dog. He does well with older children in his foster home, but might be a bit big for younger children.
He is house and crate trained, and will eat his meals, and sleep in his crate if needed. He is such a love bug, he just wants to please his humans!
Billy loves to be outside for walks, doggy or people play, and potty breaks, but doesn’t really enjoy being out long without his humans, except to watch for
squirrels or if he has a doggy friend with him. He has lots of energy, curiosity, and stamina and would be great as a running or hiking buddy.
He has not met cats, but is very friendly and adjusts well to new people and dogs.
Billy has been neutered, he's vaccinated and microchipped too. Don’t wait too long!! He is
such a beautiful lovable pup, he will find his perfect forever home very quickly! Will that be with you? We hope so!
