  • NICKNAMES:Willy, Willyard, Bugs
  • ADOPTED BY:Jess  //  Instagram: @WillardsWorld
  • FAVORITE DOG FRIENDLY SPOT IN TOWN:Burlington Waterfront & the dog park
  • FAVORITE OUTDOOR SPOT:Mt. Philo and being on Lake Champlain
  • PERSONALITY TRAITS:Willard can be very spunky or very chill, there's really no in between. He's extremely needy of my attention and definitely shows that he has some Shepard in him because he's extremely loyal and verbal!
  • MESSAGE FROM JESS:I originally didn't think I wanted to get a "rescue dog" because I was worried about the unpredictability of them. Willard popped up in my facebook feed randomly one day and I found myself completely obsessed, love at first sight. It was like I was on auto-pilot, and found myself applying for his adoption. Next thing I know I was meeting this amazing little, spunky puppy and we've been inseparable ever since. I'm now a passionate advocate for rescue animals. The thing I was scared about in rescuing an animal, is what I love most about Willard. Like in life, you have to take risks and you never know exactly what you're going to get.  Every time someone asks me what breed he is, I says he's a mix of perfection, one of a kind.
