Willie Nelson is ready to be your forever friend! Willie is a beautiful loyal guy who wants to be by your side constantly. He will gladly curl up in bed with you for hours if you are okay with that. Then this very smart boy loves doggie puzzle games, balls and tug-o-war toys.

Willie also loves to go on walks, hikes and adventures with his human and has plenty of energy to keep up. He rides well in a car and is learning about leash manners. He will sit politely and allow other dogs to pass at the park or on a trail.

Willie needs slow introductions to new people but does well after a quick warm-up. He will get more comfortable with new situations as he is socialized more. He is incredibly receptive to training and plops straight down when asked to sit.

He does well with submissive and neutral dogs but can be reactive with more dominant dogs. He is living with 4 dogs and doing well but needs to be corrected when he gets overly excited. He has a little too much energy for small dogs and children but would do well with older kids. He gets excited when meeting the resident cat and is not a great candidate for a home with cats.

He has some separation anxiety so he will do best with someone who works from home or will not be gone for extended hours. He is getting better in his kennel but may not do well in an apartment since he can react to noises when kenneled.

Willie can't wait to join you on your next adventure and then curl up by your side at the end of the day! Reach out to APA! today to schedule your meet and greet!
Come meet your new best friend
