BILLY is an 8.5 year old chihuahua, recently rescued by the Humane Society.

Billy is a sweet boy who will make a great companion for the older person or couple who are retired or home most of the day. He likes going for walks and out in the car, gets on well with other dogs preferring his size, and also with the cats in our foster home, but may chase if a cat ran from him.

He isn't suited to young children as we have no history on him, so those over 8 years of age only. We don't know how he would respond to little ones, so not worth the risk.

We have had senior bloods taken which were fine, apart from his liver count being a little higher than normal, most likely due to his age.

BILLY has been vet-checked, vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and is currently registered so we will ask for a minimum DONATION of $200 towards these costs.

If you are interested in adopting him, you will need a securely fenced property to keep him contained which a volunteer from the Society will check prior to him being released to his new home.

You will also need to meet him at our foster home in South Auckland as we WILL NOT send dogs anywhere and must meet all prospective new owners.

Our aim is to adopt each dog to a compatible owner. The Humane Society reserves the right to decline any dog adoption application at its discretion.

Please email or phone our volunteer for more information.
