Plenty of Pets

Billy is a five-month-old boy who is believed to be a Labrador retriever- terrier cross.

He is currently in a foster home with other dogs, cats, and older children. He once nipped at a smaller child in his original home, so he needs a home where kids aren’t too young.

Billy is housetrained and enjoys cuddling and going out for adventures. He responds well to positive reinforcement and loves treats and attention. He’s up to date on vaccines and parasite prevention and is microchipped. Having him neutered when he is about nine months old will be a condition of his adoption.

Billy weighs 13 kg (28.6 pounds) and will be a medium-sized dog when full grown.
