Adoptable Dog of the Week - Winnie

A big girl with an even bigger heart, this sweet pooch is looking for a family to love and cherish her! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Winnie, a year old Pitbull Terrier and Great Dane mix from Dayton, Ohio. She is spayed and working on her training with Dayton Dog Training Club volunteers. Winnie is a young, friendly dog, but due to her size, she’d do best in a family without young kids she could inadvertently knock down during playing. As for cats and dogs, it’s best to inquire more directly from her rescuers about her previous experiences – and maybe arrange a meet with your pet, if you already have one. 

Winnie’s Tale

Unfortunately, at just one year of age, Winnie is the shelter’s longest resident – through no fault of her own. This gal is sweet as they come and will charm you right away, you only have to give her a chance! She loves running around the yard, leaning on you for snuggles, giving big sloppy kisses, and generally being around her people – she’ll shower you with love, for sure. A smart cookie, Winnie is also working on her training and commands, so she’s getting the ropes of some basics. Ideally, her training would continue in her new home, to ensure she truly achieves her potential.

Her ideal home would be with only adults in the family, preferably people that have previous experience with large breed dogs – somewhere where she could run around and play and have someone to pamper her as she deserves. Not much to ask for, especially when you’re as cute as this!

If you’re interested in giving a home to Winnie, contact the Humane Society of Greater Dayton to learn more about her and the adoption process. Fingers crossed – she’s a dream of a dog!

A proud mama to seven dogs and ten cats, Angela spends her days writing for her fellow pet parents and pampering her furballs, all of whom are rescues. When she's not gushing over her adorable cats or playing with her dogs, she can be found curled up with a good fantasy book.
