Fall River’s Billabong is intelligent, personable, high energy and looking for a home



Meet Fall River Forever Paws Pet of the Week Billabong!

Billabong is a high energy, high action, all-things-Australian kind of dog! He’s about a year and a half old and has the stamina to show for it. His intelligence is just as sharp as the rest of him, already knowing some of his essential cues – sit, down, paw, and speak. As an ACD, he thrives in the outdoors with plenty of room to run, jump, and play. He’ll do the same indoors, of course, just with a whole lot more obstacles in the way.

He’s personable and friendly once he gets to know you with no issues being handled. He’s even happy to climb up onto your shoulders if you were to let him to! (Warning, we do not recommend doing this at home.) There is an initial stranger danger phase where he’ll bark and sniff you out, but it’s just his way of saying hello. Once toys or treats are in the picture, it’s all over. He’ll be your best friend until the end of time and stuck as his fetch machine for the next few hours. No aggression has been seen with food, toys, high value treats, or handling, and he’s only proven to be a certified Good Boy.

If you’re interested in Billabong, Forever Paws will be slightly selective with the way they are going to place him. They don’t want to place him in a house with cats as the breed has a prey drive, and kids in the home have to be over the age of 12 since they don’t know his history with them. Big dogs he seems to be nervous around, while smaller dogs make him feel more comfortable and he’ll open up more readily to them. Keep in mind this breed is one that typically exists on farms to keep them physically and mentally stimulated, so this is not going to be an apartment dog. He’ll be ideal for a family that’s active, outdoorsy, and can keep up with the needs of a tenacious pup.
