Willow is a beautiful 7 year-old Boxer mix (maybe some Shar-Pei or Bulldog in the mix too?) female who looks like she’s had a rough life in the past but she’s turned the corner and now has a bright future ahead of her. She came into an overcrowded rural county dog shelter as a stray so we have no history on her. She was very frightened and intimidated at the shelter so they reached out to us for help with her. Willow is now enjoying life in a foster home with Canine Lifeline while she searches for a permanent new home. This sweet girl really appreciates the simple things in life which she likely didn’t have before on a regular basis—twice daily meals, a comfy bed to curl up on, and humans with a gentle touch and kind words for her. Willow loves her crate and keeps it spotless. She may be housetrained too and, although we can’t guarantee it, she is likely to pick up the house rules quickly in her new home. Willow is just learning about walking on a leash and she does like to stick close to her humans so that is still a work in progress. Since arriving at Canine Lifeline, Willow has had a much needed dental cleaning with some extractions as well as a benign mammary growth removed. She now is feeling so much better and is eager to meet her new family. Willow is going to be the perfect match for someone who wants an affectionate, quiet girl who is content with the simple things in life. She weighs about 41 pounds and her adoption fee is $150. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Willow. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
