ADOPTED - BILLY, 5 month old male Kelpie x - Black & Tan
ADOPTED - ON TRIAL ...
BILLY was surrendered to Casino Pound and then transferred to ARRG. Billy is a true ‘street kid’ spending most of his spare outside time locating ancient bones. Clearly he has had to scavenge for survival before coming into the safety of ARRG.
He is a well-behaved youngster with few expectations and a submissive nature. Billy is always up for a walk and a play with his foster carer and the other three dogs. He has learnt basic commands; “sit” and “down”, however being a pup can’t be left unsupervised near a garbage bin and delights in moving things especially shoes. Nothing has been destroyed to date. Typical pup behaviour.
ANTICIPATED WEIGHT RANGE:25-30 kg
(Currently approximately 13 kg at 5 months of age.)
- Gets on beautifully with other dogs of all ages (he does pester the senior members of the canine family)
- Sweet and gentle
- Short, easy to maintain coat
- Happy on his own/outside and can be left alone as he does not share his mates love of car rides
- Garbage bin raider (typical pup behaviour)
- Not keen on car travel, yet!
- Not tested with cats
- No interest in chasing cattle or donkeys but will bark at them
You can view a video of BILLY on our Facebook page.
