Billie is a lovable female Dutch shepherd and Belgian shepherd puppy being kept at The Dog Rescue.
Billie is happy to keep company with other dogs. Billie has been vaccinated.
From Billie's current caretaker:
This gorgeous five-month-old Dutch Shepherd mix is beautiful. Somehow this gorgeous girl ended up at the shelter. She loves to jump on people when she says "Hi!" and is going to need someone who understands working dogs to help her become a well-mannered pup. She has been already responding to short lessons in "sit" and has so much more potential to be the most well-mannered dog on the block.
