AWESOME WILLIE LONESTAR is handsome bull terrier mix at just under 2 years old and weighs 48 pounds. When poor Willie arrived at our rescue, he was a very scared and very anxious pup. Who could blame him? He’d been bounced around for his entire life never experiencing what if felt like to feel safe and loved in a stable home environment. Everyone who got to know him at the rescue saw that he was a diamond in the “ruff”. Fast forward…
Willie recently graduated from a 6-week board and train program where trainers worked on obedience, socialization and most importantly, building his confidence. During his time at board and train, Willie quickly became a staff favorite!
His foster family reports that he is SUCH a good boy who is so eager to please. Willie is house-trained, crate-trained, knows basic commands (sit, down, come, heel, place and leave it) and walks very well on leash. He enjoys other dogs and if fine with cats. Willie LOVES to go for car rides and play fetch. He is still young and has puppy energy, so daily exercise is important for him. Willie can still be a bit skittish with loud noises and new environments and will need someone who will continue to work on building his confidence and teaching him the world isn't such a scary place. Willie would benefit from living with a confident well-balanced dog who can show him the ropes and help him feel better about the world. All in all, Willie is a happy, well-mannered, affectionate boy. He just wants to feel safe and loved, and once he does he is the most adoring and loyal companion you could ask for.
Willie is a sweet-as-sugar boy who would love to find a forever family of his very own. If you're looking for a loving companion, then Willie is the boy for you! Willie is up-to-date on vaccinations and micro-chipped. If you're interested in meeting Willie, please go to our website and fill out an application and be sure to mention AWESOME WILLIE LONESTAR.
