Billy Jean is one of our Katrina dogs who still remains here, even after all these years. Like so many of the dogs from this disaster, they all have their unbelievable stories. Billy Jean was a part of the "Lamar Dixon" group. This was the location in Louisiana where the majority of all the Pit Bulls were kept: approx. 5000 in total. As the rescue efforts went on for weeks and into months, people came and picked out the dogs they wanted to save. Animal shelters and dog rescue organizations joined in. As the animal rescue efforts were winding down, the final group of the Lamar Dixon dogs remained unwanted. But what's really sad, is that we know Billy Jean had a nice owner. You can just tell by the way she is. Though our efforts to find her family were unsuccessful, we are hoping that finding a new family will not be in vain.
Billie Jean would make the perfect house dog, she's crate trained, good around other dogs, puts up with cats & loves everyone she has ever come in contact with. Don't let her age fool you, she still has a lot of giddy up and go and loves to run around and play outside. Like all of our other forgotten Katrina dogs she's has been through the unthinkable, surviving one of the worst storms in US history, she's still waiting for her rainbow to appear….won't that be you?
