Name and age of the dog: Widgie, 4 years
Nicknames: Widgemeister, Widgadoodle, Widgini
Adoption history: An elderly couple adopted Widgie from the shelter at 8 weeks and at 6 months they couldn’t keep up with her. It wasn’t a good game. We had just lost our golden retriever and were looking for another dog. After we met her we immediately took her home and introduced her to our other Golden Tillie. It was definitely not love at first sight, but they found out and became good friends. Salvation had called her Bella, but she wasn’t Bella! So it became The Widget, which we shortened to Widgie.
Widgie loves to zoom! She lets the Zoomies play with her Labradoodle friend and with her stuffed frog that is croaking. Her favorite friend is our neighbor and his son Max. We visit every day and when Max is at home, Widgie makes crazy circles around him and gets into his lap.
We have decided that their breed has to be a ‘Belgian Zoom Terrier’ and a lot of people think they heard about this incredibly special breed when we tell them about it!
