Billy is a real "people dog". He is very happy and friendly and loves the outdoors. He is the brother of Willy who is also posted for adoption. Billy is a very confident little dog that loves to play. He is also big on affection and loves cuddles. He would be an ideal family pet for an active family but will need further training. He is small in size but definitely not fragile. He is approximately 8 - 10 months old and weighs 17 lbs.
Here is what his foster family had to say:
Billy has sparkling brown eyes, perked up ears, and looks like he is always smiling. He is a very happy and affectionate dog who loves people, cuddling with you on the couch or with you at night in bed. He enjoys being hugged and giving lots of kisses. He is very active and loves going for walks, running and wrestling with his larger foster brother. He enjoys going for car rides to anywhere.
We are regulars at the leash free park with our dog and Billy. He has been fantastic with the other dogs at the park, both big and small. He has become friends with a few of the dogs at the park, one being a large female German Sheppard and another little female dog. He also follows his foster brother Tidbit around the park, and always has an eye on him or me. He does play with other dogs, chasing them and they chase him. He also greats people at the park and enjoys being petted and the attention.
Billy is not good with the cats as he always wants to chase them. Billy is a very light sleeper and wakes at the slightest sound or movement. I am sure this will lessen as he becomes more settled in his home. He can be bossy with our other dog and wants to take his toys and food. He also pushes our dog out of the way to greet us coming in the front door or if there is attention to be had or when we have their treats. I think because he has never had anything of his own, he is overly possessive at this point of both his things and his people. He may do best as the only dog in the home. We have been working with his leash manners but he will definitely need someone to continue.
Billy would do well with a someone or a couple who have the energy to keep up with him. He needs his walks and trips to the dog park. He is ready to go all the time. He has had some exposure to a few young children at the dog park, and our dog walker is 9 years old and just loves him. I am not sure how well he would go with very young children. He does not seem stressed when we leave but he does want to come with us. He would need some dog classes or someone who is experienced in training dogs. He enjoys all foods except for lettuce and carrots. He watches very closely while we eat and waits for some little bit of food to drop or come his way.
He has had some accidents in the house during the night. He does not let you know when he needs to go so we let him out in the yard often throughout the day and just before we go to bed. We have not crated him and I realize if we did, there would probably be no issues with house training as he is fine throughout the day.
If you would like to give Billy a loving home, please submit an application for consideration.
