Willie‘s Story

❤️Willie is Available❤️

Please READ the bio and adoption requirements first to make sure you are a perfect fit BEFORE APPLYING.

Hello, my name is Willie! I'm a 3-year-old Standard Poodle male weighing in at 49 pounds with no shedding.

I'm a very good boy and a really deep thinker! I do practice social distancing (literally I keep my 6ft distance) until I am sure you are in the safe zone 😷😁 I love the company of dog friends and must have a young fur sibling, or 2, as they help with my confidence and give me a sense of security. I love going on walks/hikes and to the dog park. My silliness really shines through at the dog park! I will find my leash and bump it to let you know its time!

I need a very calm and quiet home. This means having the tv off most of the time and turned down low when its on, among other things. I also need a quiet spot all to myself where I can go for alone time. I am afraid of loud noises and new things, and need time to adjust to them. I get anxious when visitors come in and out, but I am getting much better. With patience and reassurance I eventually will be just fine. I’m a very well behaved boy, and working on learning commands and understanding what they mean. I can stay home alone and do just fine until you come back. I'm potty trained, but don't really know yet how to tell you and rely on being let out every few hours. Even so, I have never had an accident in the house.

Here’s what I’m looking for:
- Rescue experience a plus
- Stay at home/work from home pawrent (preferably female)
- Another dog sibling is a must
- No children, older teens (16+) may be considered.
- Yard or dog park nearby
- Very Calm/quiet household

If you meet all of the requirements and live within 350 miles of Dallas/Fort Worth, TX, please apply at

Willie is fully vaccinated, HW-, sterilized and microchipped.
