Willie is an adorable 7 year old Golden Retriever mix. He has the sweetest smile and big brown eyes and loves belly rubs from his foster mom. Willie loves daily walks, time exploring in the yard and car rides. Willie seems to have endured a difficult past as he is timid of new people, especially men. Since coming into foster care he has begun learning to trust that people can be kind and that he is safe and loved. Looking for a handsome shadow? Willie is your guy! Although he is trustworthy with free roam of the house while you're out. He has learned to SIT and WAIT at the front door before going out for a walk or car ride. He is amazing on leash and will heel at your side. He looks to his foster mom for encouragement as they walk and he responds to positive reinforcement. He's quite a smart guy! He's looking for a loving person who will be patient and encouraging as he learns just how good life can be. He is GREAT with other dogs, especially those that are smaller than him. However, no cats!! He has never hurt a cat but at his previous owners home they said he was "too curious" about the neighbor cats. Willie is house trained, neutered and our behaviorist that met and worked with him shared that he is "very sweet".
