Willie would love to settle into a home with a single person, or a couple without children. Willie has a calm disposition and needs a consistent environment, so rambunctious kids may scare him a little. Willie is still curious about children and is very gentle when interacting with them, but would do best with a patient dog sibling who can hang out with him and show him the ropes. Willie’s current foster believes he does best with calm and predictable interactions. Willie is still gaining the confidence to be left alone.
Willie is the perfect combination of easygoing, goofy, adventurous, and loyal. He may not be the best at learning new commands, but he is incredibly smart and is able to observe and pick up on cues in his environment. Willie has impeccable leash manners and is awesome on a walk, something he and his previous foster worked very hard on!
If Willie could win an award, it would be for “Most Loyal Dog”! Though Willie is completely friendly with other humans, nobody beats his humans! Once someone is able to win this curious senior over, he will be by their side forever. Willie will check in with his human on walks, takes cues from them when he's scared, and seek them out when he can't find them. Whoever decides to give Willie his forever home will certainly be the center of his world and his absolute favorite person to be around. Apply today to meet Willie Nelson!
