Willie's Story

Willie is a gentle soul. This one-year-old Labrador Retriever/Shepherd mix is looking for a special home where he can really let his personality shine. Willie was really reserved at the PAWS Chicago Adoption Center, breaking everyone’s heart when he spent his time curled up in a ball and hid from passersby. Willie was placed in a foster home in hopes that it would help him open up, and he has been loving it!

Willie’s foster adventure has revealed new aspects about his personality, including that he loves to play in the snow (picture: rolling around and chasing snowflakes). He is shy and timid when meeting new people, but warms up quickly and shows his caring nature to the people he knows are his friends. He has been making progress with each passing hour and will make an incredible addition to a family with children 15 years and older. Willie will need to go to a home with another canine companion that will help him feel grow his confidence and let his personality shine!  Willie is currently enjoying time in a foster home, please email to set up a meeting or to learn more about him.
