About Us
Wilson, the Dog of the Day
Name: Wilson
Age: Six years old
Gender: Male Breed: Miniature Poodle
Home: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
   Wilson is my adopted shelter dog who is the subject of my children's books, "Wilson Gets Adopted" and "Wilson Learns Manners" - which helps children learn manners, too - and the spring release will be "Wilson and the White House Pups." I post Wilson in costumes on his website, Wilson Gets

    I found Wilson on Petfinder, I was looking for a small non allergenic dog to be compatible with my two Havanese. He was four years old then, and he is six now. His first book tells, of course, of his adoption, but it starts with his early life - he ended up in rescue because his former owner was an elderly man who got sick, and couldn't keep him anymore.

    Wilson is friendly, loves to be in front of the camera and be on TV shows. As he was a rescue, I thought he might be mixed with Bichon or some other breed, but we had DNA testing done, and he's purebred poodle! So that proves you can find purebred dogs in rescue!

    He learned tricks when he came to live with us, SIT, FETCH, PAW, DOWN, STAY, and he was an apartment dog with his first owner, so my two dogs taught him to go outside. He loves being dressed up - the attention and the treats are part of the deal!

    Wilson is a true "lap dog", if I let him, he would stay on my lap all day! He gives kisses and snuggles. He's the best.
