Winny was picked up by Animal Control near Berkley Springs, WV. The place she was living told the officer that a 'friend' had stolen her. They released her to the officer who attempted to find the home she had been taken from, no one claimed her.
Winny is smart, quick and does know some obedience. She comes when called (most of the time). She is friendly and seeks attention from humans. As her foster mom for the last few weeks, I have corrected her, played with her, rough housed a bit, and she has been really great with me, and every other human, including several older kids she has met. Where she isn't so great, is with other dogs (and I am pretty sure she wouldn't be good with other small animals). For that reason, her new home should be one with only people. She can, and would easily learn, with a good handler to ignore other dogs and animals. Still, left to her own devices, she would pick a fight with another dog or go after a smaller animal. Winny is a high-drive dog who needs a job. Her new home should be one where she will get both training and lots of exercise.
Winny is a confident dog who would be a fun companion for someone who is active. Winny is a young active dog who needs a home where she will get exercise. She loves to play fetch with toys and balls.
Winny is good in the house and crate trained.
