BILLY=neutered male Feist/AustShepX...dob: ~August 17, 2016...weighs in at just 16lbs A LOVELY little man, playful & active(both breeds are highly-active breeds), LOVES to run and then happy to 'hang out' with family, in the evenings before bedtime. Crate-trained, leash-trained, great with other S)M dogs. Best supervised with larger dogs, until he gets to know them well. Maybe not the best candidate for random dog parks or homes with cats...might get too excited around fast/playful LG dogs or scaredy cats. Excellent watch dog....but, NOT a guard dog!!! Good with older, respectful kids...NOT GOOD WITH sugar-infused/hyper children! He doesn't need to learn bad habits from children who are prone to be 'bouncing off the walls' as dogs WILL pick up their people's energy levels and run with it. Will test with cats upon request. Happy, friendly, little snuggle-bum with MUCH love to share. Billy just wants to be loved, respected, get some playtime in, and a warm place to lay his head(tucked under your arm, watching tv from the couch/bed, preferably!) and never have to worry about having his belly be achingly empty, ever again. Would make a great companion for any size family with respectful children that has a secured fenced-in yard for playing ball or chasing the kids(an exhausted puppy will be an excellent companion with a most contented family!). No fence? Then, please don't bother to apply if this is your current situation. Apartment-situations would be OK but ONLY IF you work from home and have an active lifestyle, and have a doggie area at your complex(we check these things out). He is used to being a mostly outside/highly-active pup during the day and so would feel 'hemmed in' if he didn't have his peeps to be with/snuggle up to in the evenings/bedtime. But, is crate-trained for nights if being in bed with his BFF is not allowed. Having another play-pal would be MOST EXCELLENT, according to Billy! Walks well on-leash and LOVES having other pups to play with. Not a good match for a home with a cat(s). This pup is in and will remain in foster care in Rutherfordton, NC.
