Wilco is a little over 1 year old.  He had been tied to a tree with a chain and abandoned. No one is sure what happened to his tail. SAFFARI rescued him and thought he would be a good fit for the program. Obviously they were right. Wilco is the epitome of the phrase "slow and steady wins the race." He was a little slow to pick up his training, but once he got it boy did he get it. Wilco is a laid back dog who aims to please. He has blossomed into a reliable and gentle service dog.
