Billy is a 9-week old Pug cross who is being fostered in Worcestershire. He is a typical puppy, full of life and mischievous and with no fear at all. His life revolves around eating, playing and sleeping and he is accomplished in all these arts. Billy will not be rehomed until he has received both vaccinations – the dates of which will be discussed with the successful applicant.
People – Billy loves all humans and sees them all as play buddies and personal slaves. He meets a different person most days and loves them all. Billy would love to live with children but they must be sensible children who are aware of a dog’s needs and who are prepared for those needle-sharp puppy teeth in the early days.
Dogs – Billy loves the company of other dogs
Cats – Not tested with cats but young enough to learn
In the home – Billy is a puppy so prospective families should be aware of the challenges that having a new puppy brings such as housetraining, restless nights, chewing to name just a few. His tail wags all the time. He is very outgoing, into everything. He was first out of the crate, first down the step, first up the garden, first into mischief, first to the food bowl. He loves to shred newspaper. He runs towards you when called (providing what he is doing isn’t more interesting!), tail wagging and loves attention.
Out and about – Billy has not been out into the wide world yet but his new family will have to be committed to training and socialisation in many different situations. One thing Billy does enjoy is racing around the garden in his foster home so a decent sized secure garden is a must.
Type of home – Someone around much of the time with plenty of time to spend training and bringing Billy on. A household where they understand that to get a good adult dog a lot of time needs to be spent with the puppy while they are growing. He is a bright dog and will benefit from lots of opportunities to learn and try new experiences. He loves company and we would like to see him with one or more other dogs in the home to play with and learn from. Obviously, a secure garden because he is very inquisitive and moves very quickly. It is a condition of adoption that Billy attends puppy socialisation classes and you will be asked about classes available in your area.
Please remember, if you have a dog and it is not neutered, it is against our policies to re-home a dog with you.
Billy is chipped, vaccinated and up to date with his flea and worming treatment. Billy is too young to be neutered so it is a condition of adoption that his adopters arrange to have him neutered as soon as he is old enough. A discount voucher is available and follow up checks will be done. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet him in his foster home in Worcester
