Thank you Red Pine Distillery for spotlighting this pet on Cocktails and Dog Tales!
Hi, I'm Willa. Research the Pointer breed and you will find descriptions of me - I am not a dog, I am a family member. I am lovable, pushy, stubborn, fun, energetic, playful, anxious, velcro-dog, active, focused, and willing to please.
Willa has settled into our home for a while now. We have our own dogs and are also fostering 2 puppies. Willa does well with them, as long as they are not in her face and don't try to take a toy. If they do, she tells them loudly to get away. Willa loves toys. She is great at taking squeekers and stuffing out of the stuffed toys. She almost always has a toy or ball in her mouth. Willa tells us when she has to go outside to potty. She typically puts herself to bed at night. She now willingly goes into her crate when we go to work for the day (and she is rewarded with a treat). Willa has recently turned 10! This has not slowed her down though, she is active and enjoys walks and exploring.
Once I get adopted, it might take a month or so for me to settle in. They say that sometimes it can take even 3 months. It's because I like people, I enjoy being with them and getting their attention. I can be ok with other dogs - I will put them in their place at first a couple of times and once they know I don't like them in my face or trying to get my toy, then I don't bother them a bit.
