Pointer Rescue -- helping to make a difference

Willow Needs A Retirement Home

My name is Willow. I came to a shelter in TN with a Avid Chip. The Avid people say "I started out in Washington State and was registered with them as a pure bred english pointer, born on June 13, 2002." So I am soon 10 years old. Somehow I was separated from my orginial people and landed in a shelter in 2004 where I was adopted. Then in 2012 I again was found on the streets and taken to a shelter in TN. My chip information was not kept current so my family could not be located. They named me Willow at the shelter and treated me for kidney stones which required bladder surgery. But I'm all healed and doing great now. I was rescued by PRO and am in a foster home now.

I am a very sweet girl. I love attention but not to the point that I am annoying. I walk pretty good on a lead but pull just a bit. I will go into my kennel but there really is no need for it. My foster mom leaves me to roam free in the home because other than my toys I don't bother anything. I am fully housebroken. I get along well with my foster pointer brother, but I don't play much preferring to lay in the sun or on a soft couch. The only thing my foster mom has found about me that we are working to correct is I do not ride well in the car. She has ordered a seat belt tether for me and will be working with me on short frequent trips to improve my car manners. I'm really a great dog looking for a forever home to spend my old age. In return I promise be sweet and loving and always happy to see you!

Note from Foster MOM: Willow has never met a stranger; she comes to greet everyone wanting to be petted. Great all around dog. No stranger to the home with no destructive traits. She sits well to have her nails clipped. Good with other dogs. Willow would be a perfect pet for an older couple that is looking for a dog to hangout with but not requiring a lot of physical activity. She is fully vetted, shots, spayed, HW neg and on heartworm prevention. Her "Happy Tail" is healing since she is out of the kennel. Comes when called in the home or yard but has not been tested in an open area.
