Billy's Story...
Billy is a male Lab cross and is about 2-3 years old. He came to be at the NHS through an animal cruelty investigation. He loves to play with is dog friend Bob in the front pen, but has not been introduced to other dogs just yet. He also LOVES cats and will rub up against them if they let him. Billy does know how to sit, but is so energetic that he doesn’t stay in a sit position for very long! Because Bily is so energetic, he also tends to jump up a lot, but with proper training, he will make a great addition to a family with older children (12 years and up). Billy has been at the NHS since July 3, 2007.
This pet is already house trained.
