Say hello to WILLIE! He is a 2-3 years old with a medium length coat. WILLIE gets along great with other dogs, big and small. He also loves people and has no problem with new people coming in the house. He greats everyone with smiles and wiggles. WILLIE loves to go for car rides and loads right up no problem. He walks well on a leash with very little pulling. He is overly cat curious and would be best in a home without cats. WILLIE follows his foster mom around the house and will settle on the floor nearby in the evenings. 

WILLIE came into rescue a bit underweight and needing some TLC. He has put on a few lbs and is learning how to be a family dog where food and love are a regular thing. He is very treat motivated and is easily corrected when needed. WILLIE has learned sit and wait and has decent recall when not distracted. He is a very fun and playful boy - check out how he entertains himself with his toys in this YouTube video!.

WILLIE is crate trained and sleeps quietly in his crate at night. He is also potty trained and uses the dog door when he needs to go out. WILLIE is a medium to high energy boy who needs daily walks, play time and interaction. He loves to play with toys and will toss a plush toy or ball around like a puppy. He is very playful and fun to be around. WILLIE would do best in an active home where he can be part of the family and get regular exercise.

WILLIE is micro-chipped, neutered, heart worm negative and on preventative, and up to date on vaccinations.
