About Winter

Meet Winter (Winnie for short)! This 2-year old petite and unique red-merle beauty came to us from local animal control after being found as a stray. You can’t miss Winnie’s icicle eyes. In fact, she is vision impaired and will need 1-2 visits to the ophthalmologist every year to continue to monitor the condition of her eyes. But despite her limited vision, Winnie navigates the world with an endearing curiosity, using her other senses, like that perfect pink little nose, to take it all in. ♥

Despite her polar beauty, Winter has the warmest heart! In fact, with Winnie, you won’t mind the snow, the frigid temperatures, or the short days and long nights…just grab a fluffy blanket to settle in for a cuddle sesh! Because Winnie uses her mouth to feel out her environment, older or no kids would be best for this special girl.

Winter’s top 3 priorities:

1. A family who is willing to create consistent spaces and routines to make Winnie feel safe and at home.
2. A family who is patient and kind and will allow Winnie to take her time really learning how to “dog”, including snuggling and cuddling.
3. A family who is willing to take on her ongoing medical care, which includes 1-2 exams at a veterinary ophthalmologist every single year.
