Willie is a super senior who is in need of a loving home. He came into the shelter as a scared stray with a limp but that doesn't stop him from wanting to go for leisurely walks- he just doesn't make it super far. He's perked up quite a bit after settling in and is no longer quite so sad or scared. Now he's happy when people come to visit and love on him and takes treats gently from your hand. Wilson loves laying in the grass and rolling around on it while enjoying these summer days. Can you give this older guy lots of love?
