Rescue Me ID: 13-08-05-00228Willow (female)

Australian Cattle Dog    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,

    Willow is a very submissive sweet Heeler pulled from a rural shelter in Alabama, where she had been for a very long time..She has two sides to her, one is submissive but loving. She loves to be groomed, walks lovely on a leash,very crate trained, and quiet. Does not really play, loves to be a couch potato and would love to be by your side forever. She is an excellent alert dog, and a ready made companion. We have by trial and error found out some things about Willow. She will bolt if you pick up a broom or stick, just to get out of the immediate area. She is not aggressive to other dogs, but turns her head and clearly gives off the leave me ... (Read More)alone vibes. She will go up to quiet smaller dogs and sniff and almost play with them. The minute they get too revved up she has to leave, and her sanctuary is her crate. She has been tormented outside of her kennel or crate by someone with a stick. I was sweeping in her room and she was crated and when i was working around her kennel, she was leaping and barking trying to get at me. This is not a random incident, we have tried it again just to see with the same response. The best we can figure is someone seriously harassed her in her crate on a continuous basis. She also doesnt like to be handled around her neck, and I think she has seen a snare pole a time or two. With that all in mind, Willow really needs to be in a quiet home with a retired couple who want nothing more than a dog to walk or cuddle with. She needs no other company than a loving kind human, and a fenced back yard to do her business in and really nothing more. If you can provide Willow with that, and a soft bed and good food, you will have the most loving companion ever. I would so love to see this gal in that type of setting so she can finish her days knowing love and compassion.1/1 Willow had a trial in a home with someone who worked, it was not a success. She has separation anxiety,especially greater than 4 or 5 hours. She will definitely need a home where someone is there most if not all of the time. She tolerates being alone here just fine, perhaps in the company of other dogs it will work better, as long as no one expects her to play with others. (Less)
