A few residents were hesitant to get close to Wally but Henney encouraged them to get to know the friendly reptile. Henney told the resident that Wally likes his head rubbed.”He’s just like a dog,” Henney said. “He wants to be loved and petted.”Wally was rescued from Florida after a congregation of gators was slated to be destroyed in order to build a development on the land. Henney and his friend offered to help rescue the gators.

Henney said Wally likes to watch television and his favorite movie is “The Lion King.” The alligator lives in a 300-gallon pond with his fellow gator Scrappy, who is 2 years old.

The owner said Wally has “never bitten” him and is a calm alligator.
