TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
To quote from Chicago … “We love Billy” - he is such a cool dude and we are pretty sure that he could put on the razzle dazzle if he needed to! And with a racing name like Vanderbilt it’s obvious that he is a high class sort of a dog!
Billy retired through injury and so probably won’t be a dog who wants to walk for miles, but if you are looking for a companion who will look lovingly at you and not argue about the remote control then give Billy a try.
This gorgeous boy has been out of kennels a few times, but still needs more socialisation and some guidance as to what he needs to do when.
He can pull a little bit, but is ok walking on a shorter lead or on a harness, so we think that should be manageable. Billy has been described as curious and inquisitive but not reactive, he walks calmly, but can throw a few zig zags in there too! Once he is more used to being walked for leisure we are sure this will be fine.
Billy visited the home of one of our volunteers as we thought he might be cat workable...sadly, he's not 🙀.
Although he was very excited at first, sniffing EVERYTHING and keen to explore the garden. after about 10 minutes he became Super Chill Bill 😎 and plonked himself down for a rest.
He then went for a walk along the canal where he walked really nicely, paid no attention to the ducks and walked by a little terrier with hardly more than a glance.
Our volunteer went on to say, "He’s a real sweetheart and it was lovely to hang out with him for a few hours."
Billy is kennelled with a girl and has met other dogs out and about and there have been no issues. He is learning how to manage life after racing and is being introduced to cafe culture and home life - so far he has been brilliant!
If Billy is the dog for you, give us a call on 0121 426 4810 or contact us to make appointment to come to our kennels.
