Do you love being outdoors, taking walks and playing in the yard when the weather gets warmer? Do you feel that the only thing missing during your outdoor fun is a companion who loves it just as much as you do? Well, I think we may have just found the perfect match for you. His name is Wilfred, and he's currently waiting at Winnebago County Animal Services to meet you!

Here's what Amber Pinnon, Adoption & Volunteer Program Coordinator for Winnebago County Animal Services had to say about today's Q98.5 Pet of the Week...

Wilfred, the 7-year-old, 71lb pup, knows his family is out there and just needs a little help finding them. This cuddly plus-size fella knows some basic commands but needs a little work on his leash skills. His hobbies include sunbathing, ball chasing, and spooning on the couch.

Think you're the one Wilfred has been searching for?

I'm sure many people would be sold on Wilfred's awesomeness just from that description, but in case you need a little more convincing on why you should adopt Wilfred today, check out this quote from a volunteer that I found on Winnebago County Animal Services' Facebook;

He needs to find his furever home soon, the shelter life is weighing on him and just adding to his anxiety. Wilfred and his red bandana will bring so much light into your life if you decide he is the dog for you.

Well, that just absolutely breaks my heart and I so wish I had room in my home right now for Wilfred. Please read more about Wilfred's kind, playful and worried soul in this post...
