Billy Joe is a gorgeous brown hound mix who came to us from Lee County when they were running out of space. At 4 years old and about 55 pounds, Billy Joe is past his puppy stage but will still benefit from a fenced-in yard or similar area to run and play, and some great napping spots, too. Billy Joe has the unique trait of having no vocal cords. We don't know if they were lost to an injury or severe infection, or (hopefully not) from a debarking procedure, but his bark isn't very loud as a result. He is a strong boy who will benefit from obedience training and consistent behavior encouragement. Are you ready to get to know Billy Joe? Come in soon!
