Philly, you will absolutely love Willy.

Eagles kicker Jake Elliott and his fiancee Annie Timyan rescued Willy, a mixed breed from Philadelphia who embodies the city's toughness.

"We thought it would be cool to find a local pup in Philly," Elliott said.

Oh, and he's got game-breaking ability.

"I think he'd be closest to a Darren Sproles," Timyan said. "He's quick and super athletic."
