She is roughly a 35-50lb medium-sized dog, very slim, but very strong!! Willow gets along well with other dogs, She is extremely high energy and excitable so, only around cats when supervised. Willow was living the majority of her life in a small dog crate standing or lying in her own urine and feces - the fur on her paws was stained! Getting out meant a leash to the yard once or twice a week. A Good Samaritan Couple took Willow into their heart and home to allow Willow tp find the forever loving home; she so truly deserves. The neglect was so terrible that the wounds are finally healing and becoming very faint. It's amazing that despite such neglect and abuse somehow Willow has managed to keep her amazing spirit and delightful soul. Like a Willow tree she bent but they couldn't break her.

What weighs less than most purses? Can fit into small places quietly and un-noticed. Looks at you every single day as if it's the first time and makes you feel that you are the most wonderful most gorgeous human being (even when your hair sticks up straight up on your head. It's little Mystic!! There truly is something very mystical and magical about this 10 pound 3 year old kiddo. Maybe it's the way he sits next to you (Straight up) on the couch so he can look you straight in the eye. Or the way he seems to have the most focused "I'm looking into your soul," expression or that intense stare when you're watching television and not quite paying attention to him... "Truth is Mystic is happy and content to be anywhere his human is. He's been known to sleep on a shoulder; in the nook of an arm; under the covers; if there's a space to cuddle? Trust us he's going to find it!! And if it that spot happens to be on you? Well all for the better! Mystic has been with a most amazing foster family (Thank you Angela and family) and he's been adored. Their love and patience has paid off in a most secure and loving and very fun and funny boy! Mystic would do well with another sweet dog. If children; older. This little "Houdini" can run and he can climb and and we know he can get into and under tiny spaces so a very secure above ground privacy fence is a must. But honestly above anything a loving, nurturing home where Mystic can continue to flourish is what we pray for. If you have come to the point in your life where you can fit a tiny Mystic into your heart and into your life we'd love to talk to you!
