ADOPTED ON 09-07-14 – Willow eyes are the first thing that you become aware of about her but it is her sweetness that you notice and that is what will melt your heart. She is a dog that is a true joy to be around, it is obvious that she has that typical Flat Coat personality and she just wants to please in every way. She is very devoted to people and she craves human attention and wants to be as close as he possibly can be to them.
Like so many of the rescue dogs that are found, Willow, her mother and 4 other siblings were found dumped on a rural road near the woods the first week of March. They looked to have been surviving on their own for a week or more. The pups were thought to be about 8-9 wks old when they were found by a rescue angel. Their health was already starting to take a toll on their little bodies, they were wormy and emaciated. They are all not in the loving home and care of her rescuer.
Willow and her siblings are already showing the signs of their breed. Her foster dad has noticed that she is “just a real good dog”. Even at this young age, they listen and come when they are called and their foster family feels that they are really special dogs that were meant to be saved. Unlike most puppies, they told us that Willow and her siblings are relatively calm in comparison to other puppy litters. Recently they have been around little children and true to their breed, are just tremendously loving and gentle with them.
Willow loves to run and play with her siblings and she warmed up to her foster mom rather quickly. She was slightly cautious at first but warmed up after a pet and an ear scratching She gets lots of play time with her with her siblings and follows behind our ATV in the evenings. She gets along with her siblings and does well with her foster brothers and sisters dogs. She does great with kids and has been around kids quite often. She might be a large dog; her mother is about an 80lbs dog.
If you have an urge to have an instant best friend that is always glad to see you and easily maintained, you really should give this wonderful girl a look. Willow just needs someone who will love her and give her the attention she deserves.
