Cats: Unknown

About Me:   

Health Notes: Willow came to hart from an Alberta Spay and Neuter Task Force clinic.  Willow had recently scuffled with a porcupine and was recovering from quills in her face.  Adoptive parents for Willow need to be aware that quills can continue to migrate and erupt for up to a year.  Willow is up to date with DACPP, Bordatella, Rabies and is spayed and microchipped.

Behavior Notess: Willow is medium energy, who loves her 30-45 minute walks every day. She does need walks every day or she has a hard time settling down at night. Willow loves people and gets very excited when she's meeting new people. She also gets excited for food and treats. She does settle down on her own or with a few pats fairly soon after getting excited. Willow is good with dogs but will do best with male dogs in her home. She tends to be more dominant with female dogs and tries to herd them. We don't know how she is with cats. She does have a prey drive and will chase rabbits when she sees them. She has not been around children up until this point. Willow loves her crate and will go to it to sleep and is in a routine where she knows when her foster family is leaving the house and goes to her crate without being told. Willow loves her crate and has spent 8-9 hours in her crate and there have been no issues at all. She does try to counter surf when she thinks no one is watching (sneaky li'l girl!).  Willow is a flight risk as she has jumped the fence a couple times but she doesn't go far and does come back. Because of that, she should be supervised when outside. Willow is a licker and we feel that Willow licks people for several reasons including for attention, boredom, self-soothing or trying to calm people down. She is good on leash, unless she sees a rabbit, then she lunges and tries to chase. Willow loves to cuddle and she loves to play with her people. Mental stimulation is needed for her on top of physical exercise, so that she can settle. Willow is a very intelligent dog and would be a great candidate for agility!
