Willie Nelson is really angling for that "Class Clown" label with his floppy ears and adorable head tilt. A goofy playmate and a social butterfly, Willie loves meeting strangers, gets along with other dogs and even has promising notes with cats. A real dog's dog, Willie loves playing fetch, going for car rides and is VERY treat-motivated (this boy really loves his food).

Willie is eager to please his people and has excellent leash skills, which makes him a great trail buddy, and he does wonderfully left alone in his crate. This sweet pup is also a first-rate cuddler.

Willie would make a wonderful addition to any number of loving homes. If you're looking for a fun, playful charmer of a big puppy to join you on your adventures, Willie can't wait to meet you!
