About: Billy arrived at No Hairs Ark as a very scared boy from interstate - he was a very much loved family pet, however he did not have the same sentiments about the resident toddler. Billy has a lot to learn before he was ready to find his family - he needed a smaller, older family who were committed to setting firm but loving boundaries, who were prepared to show him a structured pack hierarchy and who were willing to help him with his separation anxiety. After several weeks in our care, Billy got to a point where he accepted his place on the lower rung of the ladder, and made great progress with his.. ahh, Napoleon-esque behavior - but he was now at a point where his forever home needed to step in and finish off the hard yards.
In came Yvonne and Max - a lovely older couple who per-chanced upon our very own Paco while he was on his family outing. From that instance Yvonne knew what their life had been missing for the past few years... she promptly set about to contacting Hairs Ark and filled our our application form. A few weeks after that Billy arrived and a light bulb immediately lit. Yvonne was besotted after one visit - Max knew he has his work cut out gaining Billy's trust but he wasn't the type to shy away. After a second meet and greet, Billy curled up in a bed in the corner with his bully stick and the rest was history...
Billy (now Tillie) has a long road ahead of him, but we feel we have chosen well for him.
Congratulations Tillie - you deserve it!
