Valley Center, CA


Willow is a 3-year-old chihuahua mix who loves having someone to cuddle and play with. It takes her a little bit to warm up to people at first, but then she is all love. She can be friendly with other dogs if they have a calm, docile personality. She loves to snuggle, go on walks, and run around the yard. Willow was rescued from a criminal hoarding situation, so she is territorial over her food, toys, blankets, and owners. She needs someone who is willing to be patient with her to work through this, along with her occasional reactivity towards other dogs. She does not tolerate other dogs jumping on her or getting too close unless she initiates it. Willow also has some separation anxiety when apart from her owners, so she would be most comfortable in a home where someone is there with her often. She is a very well-behaved dog who wants a lot of love despite her difficult past.
