*WILLIS* IN A NUTSHELL: Sweet and friendly to all, under 2 years of age. According to his advocate, Colleen, "Willis is a young, happy-go-lucky super boy, 55 lb. He's a social, sweet-tempered dog; even if another dog snaps at him, he doesn't react and just avoids unpleasant interactions."
We received an 11th hour "Hail Mary" email from Colleen on Willis' behalf. Our intake was closed for the summer and we were definitely not looking to take in any more dogs, but one look at the pictures and videos and we had to at least take a second look.

We had to act fast as Willis had less than 24 hours before he was scheduled to be euthanized -- he'd already been on the "e-list" for more than a week and his time had simply run out.

Just to be sure we got the full picture on Willis, Colleen sent us pictures and the links to multiple videos that had been taken of him at the shelter.


Not that we weren't convinced by all the photos and videos, but Willis was at a shelter in northern California and we had no way to pick him up to ensure that he was safe. We reached out to our friend Nancy, who had been instrumental in our rescue of DeeDee back in October, to see if she could go to the shelter and meet Willis to see if he was what he was being portrayed.

Nancy went to the shelter the very next day, and she was completely captivated by Willis. "I'm at the shelter now with Willis; had him out in the yard, amazing boy! Truly a shepherd! He's listed as 2 years old -- he may be a bit younger. He is listed as 55 lb and definitely needs to put on 5 to 10 lb. Because of her glowing recommendation, we had Nancy pull Willis on the spot. He is scheduled for his neuter surgery this coming week, and will spend some time recovering in a "Nancy recommended and approved" boarding facility until we are able to arrange his transport from northern California.
