This is the most recent information available; however, it may change as we learn more about the dog.

I'd like you to meet Willy 17-005.   Willy is an excellent companion who loves attention from his humans. Willy is a "velcro dog" and would probably sit in your lap if he could.  Once look in his beautiful big brown eyes and you'll be hooked.     Willy likes to go for long walks and play with toys.   He really likes to chew on toys, and is known to grab shoes and hats & mittens.   Willy is about 15 pounds overweight, but with continued exercise and a good diet, the pounds will melt off soon.    He appears to possibly have had some training in the past as he does well with a leash, and commands such as "sit" and down, and his name recall is excellent.   He also tends to let humans through a doorway first.   

 

Willy would do best in a home with older children (13+) because he does tend to jump on people and has almost knocked Foster Mom over a couple times.  We are continuing to work on correcting this behavior.  He also has a high prey drive so would do best with a fence and without cats.    Willy shows no signs of being reactive with toys or his food.
