Dog for Adoption: Billy
Ed’s note: Billy has found a new home!
Billy, a collie-husky cross, is quite a beauty, but nevertheless has had his share of hard times. When his former owners decided to move, they took Billy, tied him to a chain in the backyard and disappeared. Luckily, an observant and caring neighbor eventually realized that he had been abandoned, left to his fate and the likely prospects of death by starvation had someone not seen him. There are some who would say he was not only seen, he was being watched over. Billy, with one blue eye, one brown, and a beautiful long-haired coat, is sure to turn heads. About 6 years old and 20 kg, he is trained in the basics, house-broken, intelligent, calm and patient. Billy will undoubtedly make a dream companion. He is good with children and loves people in general but, being a collie, does not take well to cats. Billy is in Tokyo in a foster home and can easily meet up with any prospective owners interested in giving him a home, one that he can count on.
