Willa is our very own Cinderella. Once struggling to survive and rescued by a Best Friends No More Homeless Pets Network Partner, she is now a spoiled princess living in the lap of luxury. Willa resides in one of the offices here in Dogtown and is wonderfully behaved. She is sweet as can be and is a friend to every person she meets. She cannot live with cats or small dogs, as she has shown aggression toward them in the past. She's also picky with her (medium or large) doggie companions.

Born in 2012, Willa has had multiple mammary masses removed, and it's likely that her cancer has spread. She is on prescription medication, and there is no telling how long she has. That being said, Willa is currently feeling great, and she does not know that she's sick. Willa loves training. She knows all her basics and is starting training in canine nosework.

This sweet girl is the perfect combination of couch potato and playful companion. She's become a favorite of Dogtown staff and volunteers alike and deserves a shot at her very own forever home.
