Winnie is 6 months old and a true survivor. A few months ago, she was struck down with Parvo, and it’s always a 50/50 chance that she would pull through, but she never gave up, and now she is fighting fit and hoping for a forever home.
She has been in a foster home, as there were several weeks during her recovery she had to spend in isolation, so she has learnt a little about living in a home. She quickly picked up where to go to the toilet and was clean in the house. At the shelter, she walks well on the leash, but in the real world, she can be spooked by loud noises, and if other dogs are barking at her but this is understandable with her lack of experience, and we will continue to work with her at the shelter.
She has learnt a few basic cues like sit, but she learns quickly, and if food driven so, we know that with training, she will flourish. She needs to continue the consistency and boundaries as she is just a baby still. She is good with other dogs and has several doggy friends at the shelter. She is good with all the people who loves her tummy being rubbed and lots of cuddles. She is good with kids, too and has loved all the younger volunteers who have visited.
She is a confident, loving girl, and we know the perfect home is just around the corner. Please give Winnie the chance she deserves. Shelter life is not optimal for puppies as they have lots to learn, and the best way to learn is in a home and in the real world.
She has been vaccinated and has a microchip and passport. You can meet her at the shelter in Benissa any time between 8.30-15.00. If you have any questions, please use the contact form or email akirashelter@aol.com for more information.
