Billy is a stunningly gorgeous 9 year old long-haired German Shepherd boy who is in a foster home in Northampton, waiting for someone to offer him a loving permanent home. Billy doesn’t like small dogs and isn’t keen on staffies, but he adores any other dogs and he only barks if they bark at him first. He would enjoy living with another dog – a medium or large dog – provided they got on well when they met.
Billy hates cats and definitely can’t live with them and shouldn’t be let off his lead near cats. However he seems good with all other small furry animals. Billy loves children and could live with well-trained ones aged 5 upwards. Billy’s favourite pastimes are walking, sleeping, playing, being around people, being fussed, and being let off the lead when walking.
Billy will settle well in a house with a male figure as he bonds better with men. He wants a family that likes walking, who wouldn’t leave him for more than half a day, and that has prior experience of big dogs. He would love it if you would take him away with you on walking days. You will need to enjoy grooming long-haired dogs. He needs a cat-free home, but he doesn’t take any notice of other small furry animals, including rodents, rabbits etc. so could live in perfect harmony with any animals except cats.
Billy is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and has been wormed and flea treated. He is in very good health and has no current issues at all.
