Willie was rescued by Atlantic City Canines in December 2011. His foster mom says: "Willie is doing great. He has gained a few pounds so far and is filling out nicely. His coat looks shinier and his skin is improving also. His eyes look brighter too. He has some minor hip issues and we are giving him glucosamine to see if that improves. He loves to fetch a ball and is well trained in that. We limit the distance and time on that so he doesn't get too sore or stiff. All in all he is doing well and showing improvement all the way around. He is a doll and a pleasure."
