Billy Bob is pure gorgeous magic all wrapped up in a soft coat of velvety fur. He wasn’t always this lovely though- he was rescued after being lost (or left) for weeks out on a trail – he was skin and bones and crusty skin – he was out there dodging traffic, skittish of people, and didn’t know where to turn.
Luckily he was trapped and brought to us!
Fast forward a few months of TLC in a foster home- he’s basking in all the love he can get. We are guessing him to be about two years old, 70 pounds (ish) full of hope and bouncy puppy energy; Billy Bob is a healthy guy, 99%housebroken, and well-mannered in the house (though still has some puppy behaviors). This handsome boy will listen to you and look to you for guidance.
He alternates between happily bouncing around like a maniac, showing off his fav toys, and then coming over for adoration, hugs and cuddles. He likes his dog friends that he has in his foster home, but alpha males are not a fit for Billy. He will be happiest being a solo dog who he can have playdates with after proper introductions.
Billy Bob is stranger wary and can display protective behavior and will take time to warm up to new people. Though once you are in his trusted circle you are his most favorite people. He will thrive with training and a steady routine.
Please note: We are looking for an experienced mastiff or strong breed home (who understands and has experience with stranger wary behavior) in a suburban/rural setting. Dog-savvy teenagers and adults would be best for him.
Here’s the thing, every bit of time and effort put into Billy Bob will be repaid a 1000 times as you get to witness his huge beautiful stellar heart shine its fullest. If you think you will be a good match, please fill out an application and a volunteer will contact you. (PB)
