Meet Willow, 30 months old Dalmatian
Hello! My name is WILLOW, and this is actually my 2nd time at BHS. I thought I had found my forever home back in 2010, but I was recently returned because I wasn't getting along with the cats and dogs in my home. I really enjoy being with people - they make me happy, especially when I get a lot of attention- so if you have kids, please bring them with you because I bet they would give me alot of attention !!Actually, attention is nice for me because I have a disease called Addison's - which means I have a deficiency of a hormone that regulates how my body handles stress. It can be managed with medication and routine bloodwork; but as you can imagine, it's difficult for me being in a stressful shelter environment. I'm also experiencing some incontinence issues, but this is also being controlled with medicine; although peeing in my sleep without realizing it may still happen occasionally (hey, we all have accidents, right?). I'm a cute, energetic girl who's hoping to find a forever home in which I'll be the only companion animal; and I'll be a loyal and happy part of the family. I'd love to maybe even find someone who has dealt with this disease before! If you would like to foster or adopt me, please visit me at the shelter...I can't control having this disease, so I hope it doesn't keep me from finding a nice forever home! Please give me a chance and fill out an application first if you have an interest in me.

Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mixture. We get to know each dog as an individual and do our best to describe each dog based on personality, not breed label.
