History... I was found with another dog abandoned/tied up to a fence in the street. 

​More about me... (Olive) now Willow has just arrived with us after seeing her appeal on FB. Her world had fell apart after being dumped/abandoned by her previous scum of an owner tied up to a railing with another dog.  

What can we say about Willow, shes a very submissive girl who is hand shy. We hate to think what shes been through in her short life. When we 1st met her she would crawl along low to the ground to meet you, if you moved your hand quickly she flinched but she still wanted to meet us, shes a very brave girl indeed. 

Today we saw her play with some toys, oh boy was that lovely to see. She was so happy running around the paddock or in her case plodding around it throwing the toys in the air and puppy bowing/jumping at them, this made us smile,  she is such a  sweetheart and she has the most beautiful eyes. 

Willow lets us touch her all over, we take this slowly and gently with her and shes fine with it. She loves her food which is a great tool for training. She walks great on the lead and has passed a few dogs at the kennels - had a wee sniff through the bars then walked on. 

Willow has just arrived into a temp foster home. Its like shes never been in a home before as shes scared of everything. Shes a brave girl and is pushing through it and exploring with caution. She needs a gentle owner that will take time with her and let her come into herself. She is like a puppy seeing things for the 1st time. There are other dogs in the home but they are only seeing each other through gates at the moment and ignoring each other. She is learning that humans are nice and she is loving her snuggle time each day she gets closer and closer, we are taking it in her time, love this girl so much, love seeing her starting to love life xxx

We will be updating her progress once we learn more about her x

Type of home needed …
Bullbreed experienced home 
No kids 
No other dogs (at the moment still under assessment)
A garden would be an added plus 

Willow needs time to decompress and relax with somebody who will give her the time, love and patience she needs.
