Billy – AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION
Breed: Collie/Staffy X
Age: approx 12-24 months
Billy is a lovely and cuddly boy! He has the most beautiful face and loves to play and be with his human and doggy friends! Once he meets you he will be your best friend for life – he won’t leave you alone
Billy had a really rough start to life and has spent the last month learning how to trust humans and how to be a proper dog. He is doing so well and has come a very long way. He was toilet trained within a few days, knows sit, shake and down on command. He is good off the lead and plays beautifully with other dogs. He will always come back to you when out walking – although he is sometimes easily distracted. Billy is very food driven and will therefore be easily trained to fit into your family.
Billy will need:
– A home with experienced dog owners that have the time to let Billy learn family routines and to train him further. Billy is still nervous in new situations (especially with strange men) and will need humans that can recognise his stress signals and reassure him when he needs it
– A home where he will be a big part of the family. He will need humans that are home most of the day and/or can take him with them to work, etc as he has separation anxiety and doesn’t like to be left alone (he can be trained around this further). Billy will be adopted to a home where he can live inside with his family
– A home with children will be great for Billy – he loves kids but Billy may be best with slightly older children as he may steal food from toddlers, etc. He also mouths your hands when playing. This is in a gentle loving way of course but this may not suit young children and he needs to continue being taught not to do it
Billy is learning to be relaxed around the house, he has come a long long way and will now take himself to bed for the night and sit down with you while you go about your day. He does love attention and is learning that when his humans sit down for a cup of tea they don’t want to pat him and play with him constantly!
We love Billy and it warms our heart to know that he was rescued from a dire situation and will now have an awesome life full of love, walks and food! It has been so pleasing to watch him learn how to live a happy doggy life in such a short time! Give him a few months of learning how you operate and what is expected of him and I reckon he will be the perfect boy (well almost)
