Meet Shandi Willow
Shandi Willow is a playful, loyal, smart one-year-old female terrier mix. She is looking for a forever home where she can feel safe, at ease, loved and where she is shown patience and given time to adjust to her new family. Her original adoptive human family loved her unrelentingly for 6 months, but the 3-year old family dog could not tolerate Willow's competition for attention and resources, and the older pup became increasingly violent toward Willow. Willow is now with her 3rd foster family and has adjusted beautifully to life with two other dogs. She lived with three cats in her adoptive home and coexisted very peacefully and happily with them. Willow is anxious around strangers- she's nervous and reactive around people she doesn't know and her new family will need to create space and a sense of security for her when being introduced to new people, and out in public. With continued training and patience she will become more and more well-adjusted around strangers. Once a person has gained her trust, Willow is eager to please and is the sweetest and most affectionate little snuggle pup. She is wonderful company around the house and loves to be on your lap or at least nearby. Willow is adventurous and loves to go for hikes and is great on a leash. She knows and responds to the cues come, sit, wait, leave it. She is fully house-trained, crate trained and uses a doggie door with ease.
