Willow is a one year old German Shepherd mix. According to DNA testing she is also part Australian Shepherd, Border Collie and Lab. She was acquired from a private owner at 9 weeks of age. She weighs around 50 lbs. Willow was extremely shy and fearful as a puppy. She attended puppy training classes and socials to help her feel more comfortable. She is still fearful of strangers and other dogs. Willow and our 12 year old dachshund do not get along . Willow needs to go to a home where there are no other dogs and no children since sudden movements startle her. She gets along with our cats. Willow is crate trained, fully vaccinated, microchipped, spayed, has a negative x-ray for hip dysplasia, knows and responds to several commands and loves to play Frisbee. She is a very athletic dog. Willow does suffer from separation anxiety and needs to be crated when you are not home. She travels very well in a car. Willow is a very sweet and loving dog once she is comfortable with you. It breaks our hearts to rehome her, but our older dog deserves to live the remainder of his life in peace. Willow deserves a home where she can be a constant companion. She would do best in a home with retired people or with someone who works from home.
