Meet the amazing Abella! This adorable girl that we have affectionally nicknamed Billie is a 6 year old, 55 pound Pittie Mix. She’s looking for her forever cuddle buddy, could it be you?
Billie’s foster family have lovingly listed all you need to know about her!
– Billie loves cuddling up on the couch, the closer the better. She thinks she’s a lap dog and will always try to get into a chair with you. If she can’t, she’ll lay down on your feet or at least reach out a paw to make contact.
– She loves people and will walk up to friends and neighbors with her tail wagging. Spend more than a few minutes together and she’ll roll on her back to get belly rubs.
– She’s a smart girl and loves to train. Her tail wags non-stop when she’s practicing sit, lay down, paw, and especially come here.
– She is very food motivated and will do almost anything for a treat, but she’s also very gentle and will sit and wait patiently for her meals. She’s not protective of her food at all and thinks it’s a game if we need to pick up her bowl or kong for any reason. She loves to chew on bones and bully sticks.
– She isn’t the most playful pup, but a few times per week she’ll want to play tug with her favorite stuffed animals. She loves to chase and is learning how to let go of her toys for games of fetch.
– She loves walks, but only needs moderate exercise and is ready to go home after 30-45 minutes. She has never reacted to other people, bikes, or skateboards.
– Billie has separation anxiety and will bark when left alone. She is on medication and is training to get more comfortable, but has work ahead of her before she’s able to be left home alone.
– She is very afraid of other dogs and will react either by trying to run away from them, laying down, or growling & lunging. She’s made great strides through positive training and can walk by most dogs with a manageable reaction, but will need to be kept separate from other dogs. She also has a moderate prey drive so will need a no-pet household. If outside in a backyard, she will try to escape if she sees another dog walk by so the fence will either need to be very secure or she will need to be on a long lead.
– She is generally ok with louder sounds like traffic and fireworks, but will bark when she hears or sees other dogs through the window or if someone comes to the door. She will likely not do well in an apartment building, but you never know if it’s the right family!
