A stunning brindle Akita who is sure to capture your heart. When Willow first arrived, she was very withdrawn, often pancaking and showing uncertainty, which is understandable given her background.

Today, Willow confidently walks down busy streets on a leash and behaves well in a home setting. She is crate trained, housebroken, and with a little time to warm up, she will become your best friend. We believe Willow would thrive in a home with a confident male dog to help her feel secure.
