My name is Wilma! I am an approximately 4.5 year-old female mix breed dog. I am friendly with other dogs, but I am looking for a home without cats or children under 10.  I am very timid with new people and new places, but I warm up quickly. I would prefer a home with another dog to help me feel more comfortable. I have been at Speranza since the summer of 2014. I would love to find a family of my own!


My brother, Fred,  and I were born at a local rescue and not handled very much, so by the time we were a year old, we were still completely terrified of people. The local rescue reached out to Speranza to see if there was room for my brother and me to come live at the farm.  Fred and I have come a long way since arriving at Speranza, gaining confidence and learning to trust people.

I am very timid and need a home that will be patient while I transition into a home.  I would benefit from obedience training to gain confidence and build a bond with my new family.  I take treats nicely, but am nervous on a leash as I get farther and farther away from my comfort zone.
