    Willow 3's Story . . .
    Original: “Willow is a very active, happy puppy.”

    Little Bit and her five puppies— Willow, Bonnie, Bentley, Mia, and Faith-- came to MAESSR when their Tennessee owner started having financial issues.  He loved his Springer mama and her pups, but knew MAESSR would find them homes where they would be loved and receive good care.

    Willow is a very active, happy puppy.  This little girl loves playing with her siblings and the resident dogs.  When she is not playing, she loves to cuddle with her foster mom and dad.
    Her foster parents are working on her socialization, housetraining, crate training, house manners, and walking nicely on a leash.  They proudly report she is doing very well in all of these areas!  She even knows some basic commands.  What a quick learner! 

    Please note that MAESSR only places puppies in homes that are committed to training and bonding with the pup in obedience classes. Puppies require a lot of care, attention, and patience, and they do chew on things! The decision to get a puppy and raise it to be a healthy, happy, and well-adjusted dog is a serious commitment. To reinforce this commitment, MAESSR requires all adopters of dogs one year old and younger to enroll their puppy in obedience classes within 60 days of adoption.  Willow will be a star pupil.

    Willow wants a forever family who will dedicate themselves to her training, giving her plenty of exercise, and showering her with love.
