Although Willow had spent a good deal of time in a kennel at the puppy mill....she isn't your typical breeding dog. Somewhere along the way she received a good amount of socialization and developed a love for being with people! She is a bit skinny and you can see her ribs but she doesn't let her physical condition get in her way of having fun! If you throw a ball for her, she'll happily trot after it. If you invite her to play a game of chase, she'll joyfully follow you! Better yet, if you pet her and rub her neck and ears she will give you sweet kisses! She can be seen enjoying her play time in a video at the bottom of this bio. Clearly Willow loves to play ball!!!
Willow walks beautifully on a leash and she enjoys being close with her people. When she was transported from the shelter she rode quietly and nicely in the crate. In fact, when we opened the back of our SUV and the crate door, she put her front feet on the bumper and and looked back as if to ask "how about a boost up?". After a little "assist" she went right into the crate and settled quietly.
Willow's Foster Mom (FM) has become close to Willow and it seems that she as well as everyone who gets to know her concludes that Willow is a Wonderful Dog. Willow's FM also advises..."She's housebroken, walks beautifully on leash, stays close to you when off leash, and is friendly with neighborhood cats. Willow T is stunning and has a physical presence that makes you feel safe walking late at night. She truly embodies the qualities of the German Shepherd breed that we all love."
Her FM also advises...
Willow T is gaining weight and is getting stronger with good nutrition and daily walks.
Please check back here for any updates on her.
Willow T. has just been accepted into the GSRNC Thulani Program. Willow will receive lots of love and pampering and will also receive any medical care necessary to her well being.
