Meet Beautiful Billy he is the biggest softy you’re likely to meet.
He loves nothing better than lying his head in your lap or cuddling up to you for a lovely long pat – and will let you know your work isn’t finished by nuzzling you or waving a paw to tell you to keep the attention coming! He is already so sleek, shiny, and soft that no one can resist his little snoot asking for some pats.
Billy loves his walks, trotting very nicely on lead, and housetrained himself within half an hour of arriving! He does get a bit excited when he starts off but settles quickly and does not react to other dogs he meets.
He has learned to come to his name within the house and to hop off human furniture for a treat on his own bed. He loves enrichment, especially licking peanut butter from his Kong toys.
He has made lots of progress showing good manners while people are eating too.
Billy also loves to play and will keep you entertained for hours while he shows off his soccer and tennis skills as well as his antics with soft toys! He happily trades in human things for a treat which is very handy too.
He is very bright and food motivated and loves to learn new tricks.
He sleeps on his own bed through the night very happily and is happy left on his own during the day for 4 to 5 hours maximum with some enrichment activities and his comfy bed to snooze on!
Billy would be best suited to a home with adults and teens as he has a significant sleep startle.
However, this is easily managed with some simple tips, like providing him with soft beds or a crate out of the way of your feet and encouraging him to use these rather than human furniture with lots of treats and praise so that you can “let sleeping dogs lie”. It is also important to call his name before walking past and wait for him to wake fully and come over to you before patting him. As soon as he’s awake, he is desperate for your love and affection and will return it in spades!
No to cats!
