  • APS Dog of the Week - Billy

    Ahhhhh, fall. The air is crisp. The leaves start to turn colors. And I finally get a break from this southern heat. The double coat thing was pretty amazing in Chicago, but yikes. I tell my people they should have to put on two sweaters when they take me for walks so they can empathize.

    I digress. Fall doesn't officially begin until Sunday, but here in Durham, we've been having some incredible fall-like days recently. I can't think of a better time to add a new furry member to your family. Think of all the time you could spend outside playing and training and playing some more!

    So if you're ready to adopt a dog, why not check out this week's APS Dog of the Week Billy!

        
    Name: Billy
    Breed/Gender: Hound-Pit Mix/Male
    Age: 5-6 months old
    APS Kennel: 2
    Description: Friendly and energetic! He has lots of personality and enthusiasm, and is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. Billy is looking for an active family who’ll give him exercise & playtime, and take him to puppy class :-)
    APS Volunteer Thoughts about Billy: Billy is such a great puppy! He’s friendly, energetic, and lots of fun! He loves to run around and play with toys. He’s also really smart and he likes treats, so he’s easy and fun to train. He already knows “sit,” “down,” and “twirl” and he has started to learn “stay” and “leave it.” He always makes me laugh during our training sessions because he’s so goofy. Every time I ask him to do “down,” he looks around for a minute and then suddenly flops onto the ground. It’s really cute! Once he gets all his energy out, he’s happy to snuggle and get his belly rubbed. Billy will make a wonderful companion for a family that can give him the love, affection, and mental and physical exercise he craves, and I know he’ll give lots of love in return!  
    Barley's Thoughts: Hmmm...5-6 months old and you already know a trick I don't? What is this "twirl" thing? It sounds fancy. I like fancy things. You've inspired me to take advantage of this cool weather and ask my mama and pappy to teach me how to twirl in our back yard. They seem to like when I do tricks because I get lots of lovies and treats...suckas. If you want to romp around beautiful Durham with handsome Billy, be sure to get to APS of Durham ASAP!
