We are having a good time getting to know this close snuggling, squeaker-loving, super friendly three-legged husky girl. Her sutures are out and she is all healed up from her leg amputation. Now Willa is free to frolic and play! She really loves being outdoors and seems to enjoy having a dog pal from her foster home accompany her on walks. Willa would enjoy a mellow doggy companion in the home with her. A well-fenced yard and quiet family with lots of time to spend with her would be nice, too! Willa doesn't seem to have lived with cats before and thinks they are really fun to chase when they move fast, so she isn't being left unsupervised with the resident cats in her foster home. This sweet girl has a luxurious, thick, siberian husky coat, and she doesn't mind going out in the rain one bit! We took her to an adoption event indoors with live music and Willa was a perfect angel, happily meeting strangers all evening and trying to befriend all the other dogs who attended.
Willa is quite skillful on three legs and can climb stairs and even hopped up onto the table for a better view out the window (major husky vibes)! Willa is understandably a little hesitant around busy roads and fast cars after her car accident experience, but we're working to help her heal both her body and mind. Willa will need to remain fit and trim to make sure she stays as mobile as possible on three legs without overdoing it on the exercise.
We ask that all WCAL puppy adopters commit to attending a reward-based training class with their new puppy (we'll help you find a qualified, dog-friendly trainer near you). This is the best way we know how to help you bond with your new pup, give you access to current training techniques and ensure that your new dog becomes a well-rounded member of society. We believe in being proactive and know from experience that the best time to train a dog is NOW! It's important to us that all the dogs we rescue get the very best start with you. If you don't have time to attend training classes, please consider choosing an adult dog or waiting to adopt until your schedule is more flexible.
