Hi! My name is Billy! I'm about 11 months old. Did you know puppies can grow up in shelters?? Well, if you didn't, now you do. Me! I lived for about 6 months in a TX Shelter after being dumped on the side of the road with my siblings. This can make us have some funny quirks! Like, I didn't know what it's like to live in a house (stairs are WEIRD). What snuggles are (But I LOVE them now). How to walk on a leash (I flopped around like a fish...I'm getting better).
My "flight" response is freeze. I've gotten a TON better as I don't pee in fear anymore. My foster family went slow with me and gave me lots of gentle pets and TREATS!!! DID YOU KNOW ABOUT TREATS?!?! Anyways, they have told me I am making quick progress on learning to be a bone-a-fide family member!! I like to nibble on them to show my affection (my siblings and I did that, so I just kept on).
I am incredibly tolerant of other dogs and little kids. I mean, we're all just out here trying to survive... but recently I've been learning what LOVE is. It's WAY better than just being tolerated! I am fully on board to be the bestest companion for my new family because I have a LOT of love to give, and I am over the moon for any little bits I can get.
Recently, I have started to show my foster family my silly side. Like- GOOSE! Hehe gets them every time!!
I am good about using the doggie door to do my doggie business. I sleep all night QUIETLY in my kennel. It's heavenly for me as living in a shelter; it's NEVER quiet. My mom told me I'm a good boy for being quiet, ha jokes on her, I can FINALLY sleep peacefully in a soft, warm bed with my favorite toy (just mine, no one else's!!).
Overall, I like to see myself as an easy-going go-with-the-flow sorta pup. Honestly, I'm just happy with the bare minimum and tolerant of whatever you need to do. Anything else would just make me the luckiest puppy in the whole world!!
If you have patience, lots of love to give, and are ready for the bestest friend you can imagine I may just be the guy for you!
