|Rescue group:||Denise At Paws|
Winnie is a gentle, fluffy 3.5kg senior girl who appears to be a long hair Chihuahua cross. Her favourite things include sitting on her bed close to her human and sunbaking outside on her bed in the full sun worshipping her little heart away. She loves to be tucked up under her fostermum’s chin where she will cuddle up and close her eyes blissfully, just happy to be loved.
Whilst we don’t know Winnie’s age, we do know she is a senior and we’re approximating her age as 10 years. Winnie came into rescue quite thin but with a good feeding program has put on weight. She tends to be a bit fussy with what she eats and will need her human to put a little more effort into her meals instead of just opening a can of dog food. Her favourites are cooked rump steak, cooked beef mince and Tuckertime dog food roll. As she doesn’t have many teeth left, she loves her food cut in little pieces for her to swallow.
She also had some eye issues when she arrived and after an operation and TLC from SASH, she’s all better now, however she needs a family committed to giving her eye drops twice a day for the rest of her life to ensure her good eye health continues. Her coat will need regular brushing to keep her beautiful and tangle free.
Winnie loves her humans so much that she would prefer to be an only dog. She does have a tendency to have a minor (toothless) snap at dogs that are too close to her human pack. Having said that, Winnie loves humans whether it be adults or children. She loves being picked up and patted and could put up with it all day. She recently spent a day at the Dog Lovers Show being patted by thousands of people and proved to be completely bombproof with humans big and small.
Winnie negotiates the 5 outdoor steps at her foster home well during the day but needs to be carried up the stairs at night time. Don’t think because she’s a senior that she’s a slow, fragile dog. Winnie loves going to the dog park with her foster carer and exploring all the smells, she also enjoys a trot around the neighbourhood to see what the neighbours are up to.
Winnie is a house dog and must have access at all times, her coat will require regular grooming to keep her looking and feeling gorgeous.
Winnie comes desexed, microchipped, fully vaccinated and is on flea, worm and heartworm prevention, she has also had a dental and eye surgery performed by Dr Mark Bilson an Opthalmologist at the Small Animal Specialist Hospital. The adoption fee is $495. Winnie is not available for adoption outside of NSW (Except ACT). If you would like further information on Winnie please email Denise
If you are interested in adopting one of our rescue dogs please email and tell us all about your family, other pets, lifestyle, accommodation and anything else relevant to your enquiry, this information helps us to know if the dog you are enquiring about will suit your family. As all of our rescue dogs are in foster care in private homes we know what our dogs want and need to keep them happy when they are adopted by their new family. Home visits are done to check fencing, meet family members and other animals in the home. Once the home check is complete you are welcome to visit the dog in his foster home and all going well the dog will go on a two week trial with your family. We are always happy to extend the trial period if necessary. If for any reason at any time the adoption fails please contact us immediately, we will always take our dogs back into care
