Willi came to GSRNE outside of the usual procedure.  We first met him and his owner at a Santa Photo event at Petco and noticed Willi’s calm, gentle nature. His owner is in the military and volunteered to help GSRNE while in this area.  Eighteen months later, he had to move on and was not able to have Willi go with him, so one of our GSRNE families offered to become a temporary foster home.  This is not something we can normally do, but their male GSD, Magnum, was fine with having Willi’s company.  It has worked out so well, that the owner asked the foster family if they would like to adopt Willi, who is now 9 years old, because he is still not able to have Willi with him on deployment.  He has been visiting Willi every few months and could see that Willi feels very much at home where he is.  So, at the Picnic, we signed the Adoption Contract that gave Willi his GSRNE number, 499, and confirmed that he is in his forever home.  We are very happy that we were here for Willi, for his owner and for his and Magnum’s forever family!
