We are looking to find a new home for our almost 6-year-old female dog, Billie. We got her at 8 weeks old from Animal Allies. We believe she is a black lab/border collie mix. She is a sweet girl, loves people (isn’t super keen on other dogs, however) and was a great trail-running and skijoring companion for me before I had my son and before I got a big-girl job. Since then, however, she does not get nearly the amount of attention or exercise she needs.
We also have another older black lab and live in a pretty small house, and with our 18-month-old son tearing around the house now — it’s just too small for all of us. I guess my point is, Billie has done nothing wrong, and it’s been a painful decision for us to find her a new home, but if we found the right person for her (active, outdoorsy, with time and attention to give her) it would be better for all of us.
I have a skijoring setup – harness, rope, and waist-belt that I would send with Billie.
She is not a dog that you can leave outside, like in a fenced in yard or on a leash, for hours on her own. She loves people, and wants to be where they are. She gets along well with our other dog, but tends to not like other dogs — not that she gets violent or anything, she just will growl and put her fur up and generally try to avoid the other dog. I am not sure what she is like around cats. She has been great with our son, she lets him pull her fur, hit her, sit on her, etc. When she has had enough, she simply gets up and walks away.
If you or anyone you know is interested, please email me: mobrooks @ rocketmail.com. I can give you more information and photos via email. Thanks.
