Billy is a sweet boy that finds the world a scary place. He can be very nervous around new people and places unfamiliar to him, but once he gains his confidence with you it doesn’t take him long to show you his sweet and loving nature. Billy loves spending time with his handlers and loves nothing more than to receive gentle strokes while leaning into you for comfort. New owners will need to give Billy the time and space to become comfortable in his new environment and to not push him into situations he is uncomfortable with.

Billy loves to spend time outside in our enclosed areas and will have a sniff around and investigate his new environment. He can be quite the needy boy, so if you wonder too far away from him he will quickly be back by your side to make sure you aren’t going to leave him. Once he is satisfied with his investigations, he likes to follow close to his handler’s side. Although Billy has not showed any signs of aggression, due to his previous history in the home we advise that he wear a muzzle when out in public. We also would suggest that his new owners build a strong bond with Billy and teach him a reliable recall before allowing him off lead in open spaces.

Billy does seem to have some previous training under his belt, as he already knows the commands, sit, paw and can walk well on the lead.  He can get a little frustrated during training sessions and can get vocal when he is bored of commands – he would much rather be going for a walk! When teaching Billy new commands, it would be best to keep training sessions short and sweet.

Billy has mixed well with other dogs since being with us. He is happy to say a quick hello and then be about his business. He will ignore other dogs once he has greeted them and will happily follow his handler away from them. He has shown to be quite patient with energetic dogs and didn’t react or show any signs of aggression when a young dog had a nip at his muzzle. Billy is able to socialise with other dogs well but we feel that he would be best suited to be the only dog on the home so he can get all the attention that he deserves.

Billy is a very sweet boy who would love his new family to give him the time he needs to gain his confidence in his new home and understand it may take some time for him to fully trust in them. In the right home, Billy will make a wonderful, sweet and affectionate companion.

Can you offer this lovely boy a loving and permanent new home?
