Willow is a goofy girl in a body builder exterior. She is extremely friendly with everyone she meets and has a very laid back personality. She is extremely agile, athletic and talented. We purchased Willow from Dark Water Bullies in Washington, USA in June of 2019 at 2 years of age - it was a rocky road at the start where she tried literally dying on us (freak thing called intussusception which resulted in her losing 12" of her intestine), but we truly couldn't imagine our lives without her. She is just starting to tap into her potential in sports and we can't wait to see what the future has in store for her!
Willow is very proportionate, extremely functional and built to last. She has dense bone and heavy muscling over her entire body regardless of her exercise routine. She definitely commands attention wherever she goes - typically due to her intensely muscular stature (but if not then for her adorable personality). Her eyes are a deep brown and she carries beautiful white markings on her face, neck, chest, belly and all four feet. One of my favorite attributes of hers is her adorable face - she is so expressive and those almond shaped eyes get me every time! She has a very nicely angled front assembly, tight little cat feet and a very nicely angled rear all wrapped in one perfectly functional package.

Willow's personality is what really makes her stand out to everyone she meets. She loves anyone and everyone that offers her a pet and will absolutely soak up all the attention that she can get. She is very food motivated and willing to learn, but is very laid back and I would rate her the lowest energy out of all of our dogs. Willow is friendly with strangers, kids, dogs and puppies. She loves taking over the "auntie" roll when we have puppies in the house and will spend all day rolling around and playing with them if we let her. She is incredibly goofy and rarely is a serious dog. Despite her "lets lay down and snuggle all day" temperament in the house, she really brings the heat in sports. She is just beginning to tap into her potential on the weight pull track, and we are super excited to see how she does with some more practicing at dock dive. She has done formal rally obedience training as well, and did her first competition in Fall of 2021.

If we are not the breeder for you that is perfectly fine, but make sure that you "fact check" your future breeder to make sure that they are not using fancy words or lying about their dog's tests.
