Winnie is a sweet, spirited and energetic girl who is looking for a loving family with an active lifestyle to keep her on her toes!
Winnie was one of our Christmas pups, left in a box at the gates of our shelter in December alongside her four siblings at only a few months old. Dubbed ‘the Famous Five’, the puppies have become a real gaggle of fun and mischief here on The Farm and it’s been a pleasure to watch them grow into the lively, affectionate and rumbunctious young dogs they are today.
Winnie had a tough start in life. Not only was she dumped as a young puppy but she also developed parvovirus a few weeks after she was rescued. Fortunately, we spotted the signs early which allowed us to immediately begin treatment and, alongside her sister Honey, she was nursed painstakingly back to health by Mike. It was touch and go whether she’d survive, but Winnie is a fighter and, thanks to our round-the-clock care, she pulled through!
Fortunately, there are no lasting side-effects for puppies that suffer from parvo, and Winnie has bounded back to life as if determined to prove to the world that nothing can hold her down!
Winnie is a sweet and spirited young dog with an irresistible good nature. She loves to play with her siblings and never says no to a good game of rough and tumble. She’s a classic tomboy and always seems to manage to get dirty, no matter the weather! Luckily, she loves a cuddle and a fuss so is happy to put up with a shower down as long as a good head massage is thrown into the bargain.
Winnie's perfect home
Just like all the pups, Winnie is a young dog with lots of energy. She’s looking for an adopter that will enjoy playing and exercising with her, someone who can help introduce her to exciting new experiences once she’s had a chance to settle into her new home.
Winnie would love to have a garden of her own and plenty of outdoor space to explore on walks. She’s been collar and lead trained and we know she’d love the opportunity to explore the big wide world.
She’s grown up around her siblings and the dogs on The Farm so is very comfortable in the presence of other dogs. We think she’d be happy to live on her own, but equally could respond well to an older, resident dog who can show her the ropes. She’s also used to playing with children so we will consider homes with older children that have a good understanding of how to interact with dogs.
Her adopter should be aware that, given that The Farm is the only environment she’s ever really known, it may take her some time to get fully settled into life in a UK home. However we have no doubt that, with the usual love and patience all rescue dogs need to help the acclimatise, this brave and beautiful girl will make a wonderful addition to one very lucky household!
