49 lbs.

Crate Trained!!!


“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like, ‘What about lunch?’” Winnie the Pooh 

Meet Winnie! If you’ve been on our site, you’ve seen Winnie as “coming soon” but now this girl is ready to make her debut! She’s weaned her eight puppies, has been spayed, and is ready for her own home! And let’s make this clear, this girl? She’s a DREAM. 

She’s just about a year old (a baby herself) and weighs in at just 49 pounds! The most perfect medium to large dog size! 

Housebreaking, Crate-Training, and Commands

When we think of housebroken, Winnie is the example we all think of. She keeps her crate clean and will hold it all day long (especially when it’s raining… because who wants to do their business in the rain?) A true “bladder of steel”! 

As far as crate training goes, she’s got that in the bag too. She will go right in her kennel, especially if enticed with food, treats, or a tasty kong. 

And wouldn’t ya know it, Winnie can “sit” too! She’s easy to correct and is eager to please.

Behavior around other Dogs, Cats, and Kids

Winnie is a dream around dogs, cats, and kiddos. She lives with all three in her foster home! 

She’s curious and afraid of cats, and prefers to leave them alone, happily coexisting. She LOVES kids. She gets a little excited, so she may be a lot for a shy, smaller child, but once she relaxes she is as sweet as can be with them. 

She also does great with dogs! She came from a property with other dogs and lives in a foster home with several of them currently. It takes her a second to make sure the other dog wants to be her friend, but once she gets her nerves behind her, she’s excited and wants to play! 

Behavior around People

If there’s one thing that Winnie loves, it’s her people. While initially a little shy, she warms up quick and once she’s sold, she’s SOLD. She loves getting love from her people, but will happily spend time alone or just in the same room as you if that’s necessary. 

There are so many endearing things about Winnie, but we love her “tippy taps”, “wiggle butt” and “helicopter ears” the most. This girls’ tail never stops wagging!

Exercise Needs

Because she’s still a puppy herself, she does have a bit of energy and would love some heavy duty play sessions! But once she’s gotten her wiggles out, she’s happy to get love and spend time with ya on the couch. She’d be a great hiking partner or park buddy. 

Winnie is the best girl. When we think of a good dog, Winnie is our #1 candidate! Want to make her yours? Contact us today!
