And now a few words from me:
Hi I’m Billy! I am a real people dog. I love attention, I’ll roll over so you can pet my belly. I am pretty easy going unless I hear a strange noise, then I’ll bark to let you know there is something going on. I like to spend my days napping, going for walks and I especially LOVE playing fetch. I do get a bit crazy with the ball, I make lots of happy barks and play growls while we play. I really like hanging out with my foster dachshund friends, but was nervous of bigger dogs I met. I would be OK as a sole dog as well. At night I sleep happily in my crate, and will sometimes just go in there for a daytime nap!
And now a few words from my foster family:
Billy is mostly house trained and does quite well on a schedule. He knows several commands, and it happy just sitting with us on the couch watching TV. We take Billy in the car to visit our family. He doesn’t like getting into the car, but once he’s in, he’s a great traveller. Loves his walks, loves to play ball. Whines and barks some when he’s first left alone, when we go out for a few hours. Seems to quiet down fairly quickly and is super happy to see you when you get home. He is a great dog and will make a wonderful addition to your family.
