Meet Billie Jo, 10 years old Shetland Sheepdog
This mature lady loves the finer things in life: a twenty minute frolic in the morning and evening, a toy stuffed with treats, a decadent nap, and a snuggle with her best K9 friend. Literally nothing will stand in her way when she wants to cuddle up with her dog buddy. She'll even wedge herself into a virtually impossible space if it means she can be with her friend.Billie Joe pays little attention to other dogs and cats unless she gets to know a particular dog, and then she'll play politely. She's also fine with kids, but is initially shy with all people. It's best for her to be with older kids and patient adults who can go slowly and will appreciate how calm and quiet she is.Sometimes dogs are slow to trust new people, but when they do come out of their shell it's incredibly rewarding to see their personality shine and know that you've made a friend for life. Billie Joe is looking for that lifelong friend.All APA adoptions come with free behavior assistance through APA's behavior team. And remember, when you adopt a dog from APA, you are saving not one, but 2 lives - the life of the dog you're bringing into your home, and the next dog APA can save in the adopted dog's place.
