Willow-Female, pit bull mix
This little bundle of wiggles was found wondering the streets of Boxford. The kennel staff in the pound were quickly drawn to her happy nature. She weighs in at 39 pounds and is around 1-2 years old. She needs a special owner. She is frightened of new people. She does warm up nicely once she gets to know them but she is not good with strangers. She has been in intensive training for 2 months accessing her needs. She knows all her commands and is extremely bright. Willow’s options for adoption are limited. She needs an experienced handler and a structured environment- calm and quiet. No wild parties for this girl. She is happy simply spending time with her people and doggie friends. And she thrives on affection. She needs an adult loving home that will be patient and keep up her training. Her ideal home would have another dog and fenced-in yard where they could play together. If you are an experienced dog handler that enjoys a quiet environment and could fulfill a need to help a dog with limited options please consider Willow. She loves walks, cuddles, car rides and playing with other dogs. Willow spends her time between the kennel and her foster Mom in Gloucester. She has wonderful eye contact and seems to have lots to say when she looks at you. Willow is trying to find her place and wants nothing more than a human companion who will spend time with her showing her a safe, quiet new life in this world. She is waiting patiently for that special someone. For that she will give you undivided love, affection and tons of smiles
Note from Mary Lou, her Foster Mom:
This is a dog that needs a very special owner. She is a fabulous dog. All the attributes you would hope to have in your animal companion. Loyal, fun-loving, mild temperament, loves dogs, smart as a whip, cute as a button, loves car rides, housetrained, crate trained, requires little exercise, affectionate…
So why does she need a Special owner? She is afraid of new people. Once she warms up to them she is their friend for life. But she needs someone who will keep her safe and someone who enjoys a quiet lifestyle preferably with another dog and a fenced in yard.
PLEASE, Willow has been in shelters and rescues for nearly a year now. She so needs someplace to relax and decompress from the stress of it all.
