Meet Willie! He is a 1-year old Cairn Terrier mix with an estimated birthdate of 10/12/15. He weighs 20 pounds. Willie found his way into rescue when his owners surrendered him to a shelter with multiple “mysterious” injuries they claimed they knew nothing about. His wounds were treated, he has healed well, and has been left with a temporary patchy coat from being shaved in several places in order to treat his wounds.
Willie is an active dog who can leap over a baby gate with ease. He will need a moderate amount of exercise to keep him stimulated. A bored terrier can be a mischievous terrier. He knows his name well and comes when he is called. Willie is potty trained and crate trained. He sleeps in his crate for up to 9 hours at night with no accidents and no complaining.
Willie lives with several other dogs in his foster home and gets along with them, but he sometimes tries to be bossy with some of them. He does not have a history with any cats. He is good with respectful children, but will jump up on them, so a home without very young children might be best for him.
Willie’s claim to fame is that he has a BLACK tongue! Very cute!
Willie is not much for playing with toys. He isn’t interested in fetch or tug. He plays hard and enjoys wrestling with other active dogs. Willie will do best if in a home where all the dogs are up for a good wrestling match! In contrast, however, he also enjoys cuddling with his person. He loves sitting with his person to get snuggles and pets.
