Willow

Willow

Lab Mix

Female

2 Years

Willow has long wispy legs just like the limbs of a Willow tree. Sweet and friendly, Willow was surrendered to the shelter when her owner’s schedule didn’t allow time to care for her. Willow finds shelter life stressful and was very timid when she arrived. Shelter staff gave her time to adjust and learn the kindness that staff and volunteers had to give. Willow came out of her shell, blossoming to be the sweet, engaging girl we all know and love. We know Willow is ready to find her new home that is going to show her the patience, kindness and open heart. Willow can be a timid girl that would benefit from confidence building. Her humans will understand her trepidation to new environments and people. Willows’ humans help her by taking things slow and help her create new positive associations with new encounters. Being a mellow, girl herself, Willow would likely do well with another low-key, easy going dog. A positive interaction would need to occur at the shelter prior to finalizing adoption. Willow does love to take long sniffing walks and play with toys. As part of the UnderDog to WonderDog program Willow is going home with an awesome training package to get her settled into her new home. To help Willow find that perfect home and go from Under Dog to Wonder Dog, DuPage County Animal Services, with the generous donors of DuPage Animal Friends, has put together an adoption package to ease Willow’s transition into a home. This package will help create and build a bond between Willow and her people. Adopt Willow and you will receive a customized training plan for Willow, 3 paid in-home sessions with a trainer familiar with Willow and her what she needs to work on, 3 months of phone/email follow up with the trainer, and a gift bag of training supplies that includes: A Sound Beginning Book & CD to help set up your home to welcome Willow, a Martingale collar and additional 6’ leash, an XL Kong toy, a Kong Wobbler enrichment toy, a Nylabone, and other enrichment toys. All potential adopters must live in the Great Chicagoland Area to participate in the training package offered with Willow. For more information please call 630-407-2800 or email animlaservices@dupageco.org.
