They call me Billy Joe and I love to play! I've got a Black dot, which means that I'm probably not aware of my strength! Most Black dot dogs like me are very active and tend to have little to no obedience training yet! I'm usually interested in other dogs, but I might be too playful for some other dogs. I'm much more likely to thrive in a single-family home as opposed to an apartment or condo. The staff here say I'm a unique boy as I have no vocal cords which results in me having a very quiet bark. If your household has kids under the age of 10, a Black dot dog like me is probably not the right fit, because I need a safe place to learn my manners. If you are ready to play come meet me today! Looking at one of our long-term pets? We offer "Slumber Parties" with animals showing this tag near their kennel cards! The slumber party is an extended trial period where the available animal stays in your home for 3 days - 30 days. HSSC will provide all of their food, medications, and necessities during this time. Should you fall in love with your new friend during this time, you simply return to HSSC to complete the adoption and live happily ever after. Should you decide that the animal is not right for you, you just bring them back to HSSC, and know that with feedback about their behavior, you have helped us look for the best home for them. Let us know if you are interested in this offer!
