**Our Longest Resident! He's been in the shelter for a YEAR!**
Well, I'm Big Boy Wilson. My story is long so I'm not sure where to begin...
Long story short, I was adopted from AHS as a baby. Happiest Day E.V.E.R! I was stoked to get out of there and enjoy a yard and loving parents! But, alas, I was returned to the shelter. My owner died quite suddenly and the family didn't want to bother with me, I guess. By this point, I was depressed and confused. I loved my home!
The good news is I was pulled by SWAC and you can make me part of your family! I am a very sweet and loving boy! I absolutely love to give hugs! No need to bend down. I'm as tall as you! Ha ha! Shorty! Anyway, I get along well with female dogs. Other male dogs bring out the worst in me! The shelter humans tell me I have to learn to control my excitement so I'm working on what they call "training". All I know is, I sit, they provide treats! I've been working very hard and am progressing well! I need a big space to play and someone with plenty of energy and patience to play with me! Children are the best! OMG! I love children! I love them so much I knock most of them down. OOPS! But I just want to play! Sturdy children are definately best for me!
Do I sound like the perfect dog or what!? Come visit me to see all this greatness in action! I really am awesome!
