Billy Jack has lots of potential and can't wait for that special person or family to discover him and all he has to offer. Born in 2014, he's just now realizing how much he loves to learn and what he's capable of doing. He's already mastered some basic training cues and is learning 'wait.' He's also been doing agility at the Sanctuary. Billy Jack is initially shy and fearful with strangers, but once he warms up he is very friendly. Because he is quick and can get through gates and doors easily, he is considered a flight risk and needs to be watched carefully. At the Sanctuary, he's done well with other dogs and even passed a cat test. All he needs now is for someone to see how wonderful he truly is and to bring him home.
