Billie, blue brindle in Sacramento CA

Why buy from a breeder when there are plenty of homeless pups in shelters???

Billie, blue brindle in Sacramento CA

(I vow to try to get better pictures when my friend comes over Thursday to lend an extra pair of hands... :oops: )

BILLIE is a 1-2yr FS blue brindle APBT (UKC style) rescued from euthanasia at the Merced shelter. Doggy in attitude as well as looks, she is your typical dorky, happy musclehead male in a female body. Her biggest issue is chewing: if it will fit in her mouth, she will give it a try, so crating is a must when she is unsupervised.

Billie just finished her first round of basic obedience. We will go back if she's not placed by the 2nd week in April. Budget allowing, I'm hoping to go for her CGC on 4/19. She does very well on walks, except that thanks to her cropped ears and tank-like everyone she wants to say hi to (in my neighborhood) is scared of her. :frown:

She is fostered with 2 other female dogs, but I would prefer to see her matched with a male dog if any. She is good with cats and has shown very little interest in squirrels/birds in the yard. She knows how to fetch and really just wants to be with people all the time.

She snores like a bandsaw and, although she is not terribly athletic, she has a fair amount of energy that will require physical & mental outlets. Billie is low-drive enough to be a good match for an inexperienced owner willing to do pit bull research or a breeze for a bully-savvy home.

She came in to the shelter recently spayed and is now dewormed, microchipped, heartworm tested & on flea control.

A video for those with the bandwidth:

Does she have wings so she can fly up to B.C.? She sounds like my perfect second dog!

If we can figure out a home check for you, I'm sure transportation could be figured out! :thumbsup:

Wow! she's beautiful and would make a perfect sister for my son Kahless, unfortunately we're on the wrong coast! lol

Tell me she's not meant to be his match?

Well, Billie failed her CGC, but it was strictly lack of obedience training/proofing on my part. So, back to the drawing board...

She did excellent at Picnic Day on Saturday and got quite a few fans. She had a small mass removed on Friday and we're awaiting the biopsy results.

Bump with new pics! Billie's lost almost all of the dead hair in her coat & looks really good now that her pyoderma has healed. lol Her final weight topped out at 55lbs, but she could still put on some more muscle.

I ended up having to hold dogs for most of the day because the parade dogs were gone for so long and they were short-staffed.

BTW, her mass was a histiocytoma, which would have gone away on its own, but oh well.

She's a adorable little girl. Hopefully she finds a great forever home. She looks like a total doll!

My upstairs neighbors & their chickens are driving me batty, so I'm looking for a new place when my lease is up 12/31/09 and it's going to be hard enough to move with one pit bull, let alone two. So, let's get Billie into her new home by the end of the year!!!! :pray
