Billie is a very sweet, lovable, timid girl who will want to become your lovebug, snuggling in your lap. She can be a bit shy, but enjoys meeting new people. She's a kind, gentle puppy who walks fairly well on her leash, and she's having fun in APA!'s playgroups. And she's been very interested in all those squirrels she sees.

She's a very affectionate girl who came to APA! with liver medical issues and is receiving care. She will love a foster or adopter who can give her a nice bed to snuggle in and help her gain some weight. She'll enjoy short walks and a small yard to sniff, and she rides well in cars, so will be a good traveling companion. And she will enjoy a well-matched doggie sibling.

Look at her big bat ears! She will be such an entertaining girl to dress up for Halloween. Come get acquainted with this sweetie!

PUPPIES AND OTHER HIGHLY-ADOPTABLE DOGS DISCLAIMER:

Puppies and other highly-adoptable dogs (small dogs or desirable-breed dogs) at APA! are very high in demand and usually have several interested adopters. Inquiring about a dog, meeting a dog, and even applying for a dog does not guarantee that you will be able to adopt the dog. Only one household will be able to adopt each dog, which means all other interested households will inevitably and unfortunately be disappointed. Please consider this in your search and set your expectations accordingly. Please also consider that adult dogs do not typically have competing adopters, and they need furever homes, too! Additionally, APA! does not allow the adoption of dogs who are related (e.g., littermates or mom and pup) to the same household for behavioral reasons.
