Crate trained!


“Any day spent with you is my favorite day,” – Winnie (Winnie the Pooh)

Welcome Winnie!! Winnie is a ~7 month old American Staffordshire Terrier mix who currently weighs ~35 pounds. We think that once she’s full grown she’ll top out around 50 pounds.

Winnie is potty trained! Foster Mom told us that Winnie sleeps throughout the night, and keeps her crate clean when Foster Mom is gone! Speaking of which, Winnie is also crate trained. Winnie will go into the crate on command, and will be even happier if she gets a treat for sitting so quietly and calmly! If Foster Mom is home, then Winnie may try to talk to her through her crate to remind Foster Mom that she’s still around; however, she’s quiet if she knows Foster Mom is gone!

Winnie is canine-friendly! She lives with two larger dogs, and gets along well with them. These dogs have been helping Winnie learn the do’s and do-not’s of the canine world. Specifically, Winnie has learned that no means no and how to be polite with her canine buddies. She can be a bit shy at first with new canine friends, but quickly warms up to them and just wants to play! We think she’d be a good fit for a person looking for a dog-park dog, or someone who wants a friendly companion for their own pup!

Winnie’s a pretty easy-going dog as far as her exercise needs. Like most dogs her age, she appreciates moderate exercise like walks, play sessions, and trips to the dog park. She’d able to keep up with an active family or be a running partner if that’s what you want. But she’s also content to lounge on the couch especially on rainy days. Basically she’s up for whatever as long as her people are with her! She loves getting attention and sneaking into Foster Mom’s personal space to sneak a few doggie kisses.

Think you’re the one to show Winnie what else life has to offer? Contact us today, and see if y’all are a match!
