Introducing Billie Jean, our gorgeous Lab cross American Staffy (we think). This dog really loves people, especially ladies, and is always happy to see you, hoping for a run or a trip in the car. Sometimes she can be unsure of men, but not all men, just some. She is 3 years old.
Billie Jean is a strong dog with an out-going personality, and she has been trained in the basics of Sit, Down, and Stay. Much of her training was also concentrated on walking well on the lead, and so long as she knows you are boss she walks by your side like a dream. She is a very intelligent dog, and she can read her people like a book, so if you’re a bit of a marshmallow when it comes to your dogs you may find her stubborn and eager to get her own way. She would be best homed with someone who knows how to be a leader, and someone who can manage a strong dog.
Billie travels well in the car. She likes to play with a ball and will run to retrieve it when you throw it, but she isn't obsessive with the ball like some dogs can be. She is housetrained and clean in the house, and likes to sneak in for a nap on the sofa when she can. She is also a great watch dog and her size makes her a good deterrent for burglars.
We haven’t seen this girl with children but wouldn’t anticipate a problem except for children under 5 as she could accidentally knock them over. We doubt that she would make friends with a cat. She is not always sure of other dogs and can on occasions be unfriendly to them. We think this is driven by fear and insecurity. Humans are her preference and so we would be happy to home her into a family where she is the only dog.
If you would like to know more about Billie Jean please phone Lynda. If phoning on a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday please call after 7.30pm and before 9pm.
