We rescued and adopted this sweet and adorable dog a little under 2 years ago. He came from a flooded drain pipe when he was a very young puppy with his litter and mom. He was rescued by his first human at the flooded area. Since we adopted him, he is happy, healthy, and loves our family. He is a border collie and blue heeler mix; about 40 pounds. He is always ready to eat, play, or go for a walk. He also loves running, playing chase with a ball, and following us around. Unfortunately, our family situation has changed, and we are unable to give him the love and attention he needs. This is a very difficult decision for our family, and it breaks our hearts we cannot be his forever home, but we know he will be happier in a family who can provide him all the attention, play time, and walks he needs.
More info: Willis is very sweet with us, our child (age 10), and is fine around our child’s friends. However, he is very fearful of new adults, and can be reactive towards them on occasion. We have not had any physical issues, just barking. Because of that, we think he’d do best as an only pet and a smaller family. A lower-traffic home is likely ideal, as Willis startles easily with new people randomly coming to the house. He is crate-trained and that is a wonderful and safe space for him while new things or visitors are happening in the home. This background is provided so Willis is given the perfect match for this sweet and very smart boy. Willis loves being in the action, loves being in the same room as us, and he loves playing inside and outside. He loves going on walks and looking out the window. He is truly a great dog, and we love him, but know he needs more time and attention than we can offer him at this time.
