Hi everyone! I’m Wilson and I’m the handsome guy you’ve been waiting for! I’m a 90-pound Lab mix, and when you take me for a walk, well … let’s just say the compliments will start rolling in. But I’m not just a pretty face! My foster mom says I am the sweetest, gentlest boy around. I am excellent at “Netflix and chilling.” I love snuggling in bed, getting pets, chewing a good bully stick, and playing with my toys. I am selective about my dog friends and have a “tribe” I like to hang out with. I usually ignore my foster grandma’s cat when I go visit. And the best part of it all? I love sleeping in on the weekends!
But just like you all, I’m always working on myself, and need your help! I am very smart and know lots of commands, but I’ll need you to keep reinforcing these. I am normally polite on a leash but can get excited when I see a bunny or another dog, and foster mom has been working on counter conditioning. I do have some anxiety, but my foster mom has figured out it’s best to have the curtains closed so I cannot get too excited by what’s going on outside, and music seems to help calm me. Finally, I do have some resource guarding tendencies (but what rescue dog doesn’t?), so I will need you to help me manage this. If I get a good chew, toy, etc., I may get worried if someone I do not know is near me, so foster mom thinks I will do best with a smaller family (1-2 adults and teens).
I am young and super willing to learn, so I hope you have room in your life for one of the goodest boys around! My loyalty knows no bounds, and once we meet, I will be by your side no matter what!
