From Willow’s Family:
Willow’s initial bio is still accurate. We now have a baby gate because she opens doors and can open her kibble container. She is very talented with her paws, and is one smart cookie! We have fallen in love with her and have learned to embrace her high energy approach to life.
Willow has a top ten list she wanted to share.
Willow’s Top Ten list:
10. Learning how to be a family member;
9. Lots of dog toys – destructible and not;
8. Long daily walks or hikes and splashes in the Salish Sea;
7. Riding in the car and helping with errands;
6. A Vanilla dog treat on my pillow each night;
5. Letting my people know it is 5:22 a.m. and time for breakfast – work day or not;
4. Three daily consistent healthy hots and several dog cots;
3. Lots of petting, belly rubs and leaning by me;
2. A family who loves me and tells me that I am a good dog; and
1. Everyone from GBR & Harbin SHS Animal Rescue who made my and my puppies rescue possible!

Hi! My name is Willow (#2860)! You might know who I am because I recently gave birth to all of the beautiful “W” puppies. Take a look at me. You can see why my puppies are sooo cute. Speaking of puppies, don’t let my age fool you. I act like a puppy. Everything is so new and so exciting, that I can hardly contain myself.
I have a ton of energy. I love to go for walks, zoom around the house and yard, play catch and rip up my toys.
I am a huntress. I love to stalk critters and will point my tail. I love to pounce on leaves if they come blowing my way. I sit patiently and watch anything that flies, hoping that it will land within my reach.
I like to be petted and to be around people. I will flop on my back and, if you pet me just right, I purr like a cat. But, I also like to slink off to see if I can find something of interest. Once I tire out, I am the consummate love bug. I play hard, and sleep well at night.
I am looking for a forever family who will be patient with me and who will help me channel my inner puppy energy.
From her foster mom: Willow is a very high energy dog who is all smiles. She acts like a puppy and is curious about everything. I question whether she spent any time out of confinement prior to arriving in the U.S. As of now, she needs to be supervised 24/7. She will need to be with a family that can provide her with a lot of exercise and training. Once she gets in “hunter mode,” she has a hard time refocusing. So far, she is fearless. She is smart, and is doing well on her basic commands. Agility training or an active playmate would be good options for her. Once she settles in, she is going to be a wonderful asset to her forever home.
