Please consider that many of these dogs have been abandoned, ignored by their previous owners, or turned in to a shelter, having little interaction with someone who cares about them. When adopted, they will need time to adjust to the changes in their life.
Billy is available on "FOSTER TO ADOPT" basis with someone in the Denver area who will continue with his trainer, and who does not need a dog who is social around non-family members.
Billy is a dog with lots of energy. He's a very playful, about 2 yrs old. He knows some basic obedience training (sit, down, wait, stay, and leave it). He is very energetic and needs exercise on a daily basis. He is very loving and such a sweet boy with his foster family. Billy sometimes plays rough with other dogs, but he has lived peacefully with both large and small (20 lb) dogs . He seems to do best with active/submissive female dogs. Billy is VERY PROTECTIVE of his pack and his turf, so he needs to go to a home without a lot of visitors. He would love a home with an active handler who has EXPERIENCE with this kind of dog . No children. He absolutely LOVES to chase squirrels up the tree. He also loves to play fetch with a frisbee and his recall is excellent, so this is a great form of exercise for him. He would also make an excellent protective jogging partner. Billy is an exceptionally smart boy who reads both people and other dogs well. An ideal setting may be an owner looking for a companion who will alert if/when strangers are present. Billy has just completed a board and train program.
