Hi! My name is Willie! Do you want a companion who will love you and stay by your side? That’s me, that’s me! I love everyone and everything, and I would make a great sidekick in all of your adventures. I get along with all kinds of dogs, I don’t mind cats, but really my favorite thing is you! I am getting ready to go through heartworm treatment, but I don’t let that stop me one bit. I still like to go for long walks and snuggle up with you whenever I can.
Willie has heartworms and will be starting treatment soon. Willie would greatly benefit from having a quiet home to recuperate in rather than trying to rest in a noisy and stressful shelter environment. If you would like to provide a foster home, or foster-to-adopt home, during Willie’s heartworm treatment, Helping Strays will provide everything you need; the medical care, crate, food, etc. Foster-to-adopt would be a great way to get to know Willie. Finalizing the adoption would be done once treatment is complete.
