Available Dogs arrow WINNIE (17-059)

Winnie17-059WINNIE (17-059) is a spunky 9 month old redhead.  She currently weighs just over 60lbs but is still growing and the vet estimates that she will probably weigh about 70lbs as an adult.  Winnie is very sweet, gets along well with other dogs (after she sets her boundaries with an initial warning grumble) and she has been truly entertained by our outdoor cat.  Winnie has been with children of all ages, but due to her tendency to jump up, she would probably do best with older kids.  She will require a family who is around much of the time and willing to train her in good dog behavior.  Winnie does like slippers and tissues, so she will need a neat environment where she cannot get into things.  She has been quite trustworthy when we are not at home, but she does have some older Goldens to follow.  Winnie would really love a canine sibling so she can have a model of good behavior, and also a playmate. Winnie likes to Winnie17-059_2play and she is good about sharing toys.  Winnie rides very well in the car and she is fully house trained if kept on a schedule.  A fenced yard is a requirement for Winnie since she has lots of puppy energy.  Winnie is learning to walk well on a leash but we use a front lead harness since she is very strong and still learning not to pull.  Winnie is a cuddly puppy who loves to sit next to you on the couch.  When you cuddle Winnie or pet her, she sometimes tells you how much she loves it with a quiet gentle purring noise.  If you are ready for a friendly, snugly puppy who needs to continue her training, Winnie could be your girl.
