Winnie is a sweet and friendly female wire haired terrier mix puppy. She was picked up by Little Rock Animal Services and taken to the shelter to compete with all the other dogs and puppies for the attention of the few people willing to endure the noise and distress of the barking and crying. Scared by the noise and intimidating environment of the shelter, Winnie became shy and a little nervous, increasing the odds that she would be overlooked by visitors and left to face a grim fate.
Fortunately for Winnie, she was noticed peering through the wires of her kennel gate by a visiting DogsOnly volunteer. After only a few days out of the noise and confusion of the shelter, Winnie has made a remarkable recovery and is running about and playing with the other dogs in her foster home. Winnie is approximately 16 weeks old and weighs about 18 pounds.

Winnie needs a home with someone who can spend time with her as she was apparently not given much attention in the shelter. She will at first approach you carefully to make sure you’re friendly, and then, as soon as she realizes you’re OK, will instantly become your best friend and dance about you in joy.
Please remember that as beautiful and cuddly as Winnie is at the moment, she will grow into an adult dog in no time at all. You should also be prepared for the usual trial of rearing a young puppy including the chewing, crying, potty training, and constant demands. For this reason we would prefer that Winnie’s new guardians have experience with young puppies and understand their special needs. Remember, just like kids, they grow up real fast.
You can meet Winnie at the west Little Rock Petco on Chenal Parkway across from Target and Home Depot every Sat and Sun from 1-4. Please be sure and call (501-219-9907) before you come to visit her to make sure that she is still available. Winnie has received a complete medical evaluation, alter, all shots, rabies, fecal and worming medication, flea/tick preventative, heartworm preventative, micro-chipping, and grooming. If believe that Winnie wouldmake the perfect addition to your family you are invited to send an email to Contact@DogsOnly.org or complete an online adoption application by clicking the orange text links at the top or bottom of this page.
