Billy from Kenilworth (West Midlands)

We adopted Billy in 2008 when he was about 18months old. My children were only 2 and 4 at the time and I was worried about a rescue with young children but Dogs Trust were brilliant and found the perfect dog for us. Billy is a gentle although very lively dog that has managed to keep up with our very active family: he loves running in the Lake District with us when we go camping. Billy has brought so much love to our family and is a great friend to my boys. He’s still so fit and healthy that people see him running at the park and think he’s a puppy. Only his grey beard gives him away.
