Meet Billy! This GIANT boy’s photos do not do him justice, as he weighs in at 150 lbs! Billy is looking for a home where he can play with you and be your best friend, as he’s truly a gentle giant. Despite his size, he takes his treats very gently, and Billy is learning well not to jump up. He knows his basic commands and is ready for a new life!
Billy has some food issues and does not do well on regular food, but he’s doing fantastic on his prescription I/D food from Hill’s.
Billy is in need of a confident, physically strong, patient, and experienced guardian to become his forever best friend. Billy is a young and playful dog that sometimes still acts like a puppy and often forgets how big he is.
We highly recommend that his adopter continues his positive reinforcement training with a professional dog trainers guidance to work on his doggy manners as well as managing his dog reactivity in a safe and humane way. Due to his size he can be a bit intimidating for children and will easily knock them over without meaning to. Billy is not a fan of other dogs or cats and needs to remain on leash for walks. Billy would love a home with a fenced yard, or acreage; plenty of space for him to run, play and adventure with his human friends. to help Billy manage his digestive issues he needs to be on a special dry food diet.
