From the Foster:

Willa has mastered the balance of mellow chill and excited puppy-like energy!  She is happy to lounge and get petted all day and as soon as a leash gets picked up she  is a hopping ball of energy ready to go on an adventure.  

She is very tolerant of toddlers pestering her and loves older children that give pets and can teach her new tricks!  She very politely “knocks” on a door with her paw when she wants to come in. 

She occasionally has vivid dreams and runs and ruffs in her sleep. 

She only barks at the most important times like when a visitor arrives she happily announces it so everyone is aware then settles back down to her mellow self.  She loves the company of people and is not a fan of being left alone though she has never been destructive even when not kenneled.  She has a strong prey drive and so doesn’t make the best friends with cats.  

Willa does have some separation anxiety and will pull some fur out when she is stressed out from this, she is not destructive in the home.  She also has small lumps that grow on her eyelid occasionally that need to be removed. When she was originally adopted she had some metal bb pellets lodged in her that are still there.
