Willow

Baby - Female
Adoptable Small Mix Dog FriendlyMicrochippedSpayed / NeuteredVaccinated

3 months old (as of 12/17/17)

Here are some facts about Willow from her foster mom:
– the vet thinks she’s maybe 10-12 weeks, so we’re guessing she will be 30lbs

– pretty snuggly once she’s run around our couch for twenty minutes chasing her foster sister

– she has no interest in the resident cat…she’s gone up and sniffed her, but the cat hissed and ran away and she just stood there. That might change when she gets older but right now, she had no idea

– We would strongly recommend another dog in the house…she has a LOT of energy, and we think she’d benefit from a dog who will play with her, but also correct her because she can be super sassy and her current canine foster sister doesn’t know how to handle it

– Basically crate trained already…will cry a bit if you walk into the room and she sees you, but she’s been sleeping in her crate and is totally quiet all night

– We would suggest kids older than 12, unless they are calm. She is resource guarding, but is working on it. She hasn’t had issues with her fosters,but may be pushy with younger kids

– she has a lot of attitude. Seriously, one of the sassiest puppies we’ve met in a while

Willow’s foster mom has started her in positive reinforcement obedience to work on some of her behavioral issues, and it is an essential requirement that her adopter is willing to do the same.

Please note that we will not adopt puppies under 6 months of age to apartments or homes without a safely fenced private yard due to their incomplete immunization. We require that they go to a home where someone will be home much of the time for training and with no children under 5 years of age due to a puppy’s sharp teeth. Also, no homes with pools unless they are securely fenced.

Please be aware that we rarely have information about cat compatibility, as most of our foster homes don’t have cats. Adoption decisions are based on the best overall match and not done on a first-come-first-serve basis.
