Pet-Peeves:
She really does not have any that we have discovered yet. Happy girl all the time. Loves people and other pets. Not a mean bone in her body

Favorite Toy:
Big stuffed dogs that I can repair the stuffing.

Favorite Food:
Willow loves Nutro Natural Choice Fish Formula, Zuke's, Greenies and Natural Choice Crunchy Treats. Her mom is a Pet Nutrition Specialist for The Nutro Company

Favorite Walk:
Around the neighborhood so she can see her buddies.

Best Tricks:
We communicate with her by sign language and facial expresstions. She does sit, stay, paw, down, crawl and dance. She is staring to do agility training and will maybe doing herding someday. She is a natural.

Arrival Story:
Willow came to us from Tennessee. We adopted her from Deaf Dogs of Oregon. She is deaf but knows sign language and is so smart. I was introduced to this group at a Petsmart adoption event and fell in love with the breed and the group is amazing. They have a support group and they meet once a month so the dogs can play together.

Bio:
She loves to play all the time and gets to go to daycare once a week and party with the other dogs. She is so funny when she lays down on the sofa or bed and falls asleep with her head hanging over the side and sometimes she turns over and falls off and she just thinks it is funny and gets right back up and snuggles with you. She has matured a lot over the last year and is a wonderful companion for us.

Forums Motto:
Willow loves to herd people.

Willow and The Fitness Ball

Willow is mastering jumping up on the peanut ball. She then sits down, lays down, turns around and tries to balance on it when I let it go. She is so smart. Agility training will be in her future.
