My story


*Phoenix Metro Area Only* 

Willy (male)
Breed: Norwich Terrier/chihuahua mix
Age: 4 yrs 
Weight: 12 lbs 
Ok with dogs, cats unknown
Ok with older kids
Adoption Fee: $300

Willy was picked up by Arizona Humane Society (AHS) with possible injuries, possibly from a dog attack.  Willy’s injuries were  treated and he was made  available for a rescue.  He has always been very shy and unsure, and under socialized.  He has gradually become slightly more social but likely to always be shy and will need patience and time to bond to new owner/family. 

Willy should have another friendly playful dog in the home to help with his social skills.  He is likely to be a "runner" for a few months until he bonds with his new family, gets the schedule and routine.  He will require a secure fenced yard to keep him safe. Once he feels safe with you he is very affectionate. He would do best in calm home and be slowly introduced to anyone coming into the house. He has never attempted to bite due to fear but a slow approach is best and he does well enticed with treats. Willy would benefit from consistent training and socialization to encourage his confidence. He is a very sweet boy.

Willy will join his new owner with a collar, harness, and a leash. He is vaccinated, altered and microchipped. Meet and greets will be set up on approved applications only. A canine companion is a requirement to adopt Willy. Adoption fee: $300.

More about this rescue

Pathways Home Animal Rescue is an all volunteer / foster based organization dedicated to finding the best homes for abandoned, surrendered, and county shelter animals. We stay small so we can devote our energies and resources to all the animals in our care. When we take in a found or stray animal every effort is made to reunite them with their owners. All animals in our care receive proper veterinary care, are spayed or neutered, all appropriate vaccinations, preventative care, and microchip are administered before they are adopted.
