Why choose me?

I saw Willy when he came in as a stray. He was so frightened, he had to be carried into the building. Fortunately, after watching other dogs run and play in the interaction pens, he decided to leave his kennel and give it a try. I’d reach to pet him, and he’d roll over in submission. I gave him a belly rub instead, and he learned that was kind of nice and started wiggling and enjoying them. Rambler also helped Willy gain some confidence. Both were friendly and started running along the fence together. The final thing that helped Willy forget his fears was a squeaky toy. He loved it and carried it around like a security blanket. Willy is a sweet, handsome dog. He might be a little timid when you meet him, but he’s getting over that and learning about how much fun he can have with new friends!
