Winnie D2023-36

  • Needs a resident dog
  • Not cat or small furry tested
  • Children 9 and over
  • Patient family with time to let her adjust

Winnie or Wiggly Winnie as her foster mum likes to call her is a 6 year old cocker spaniel described by her foster mum as a lovely girl who desperately wants to run over to you in the garden and get a cuddle but is still nervous so she wiggles her way to you instead.

She watches the action from the sofa, keen to perhaps get the ball or jump down and run downstairs with the other dogs, but she’s still shy… so she wiggles instead. In fact. Winnie is wiggly winnie as she wiggles her rear end whenever she is running about. If you call her name she will stops and look and wiggle with excitement and nerves.  
She doesn’t yet play but has been watching the others catch a ball and run to foster mum watching them get lots of positive fuss and attention. All the time her little tail beats like a drum on the cushions. She is going to be an amazing affectionate dog once she feels safe.

Winnie lives with other dogs, an adult, a teenager and a nine-year-old. She is calm, still slightly nervous and timid but has shown nothing but an eagerness to love humans and other animals.

Not cat or small furry tested

We recommend she be homed with children 9 and over

Winnie tries really hard to trust. She is not quite there yet with the lead and harness. It feels strange to her. She has never been walked before. But she keeps practicing.

She currently sleeps downstairs on the sofa and is a good girl all night.

She is fully house trained and eats well around the other dogs.

Winnie needs a home that has the patience to wait. Wait while she wiggles and wait for those wiggles to turn into action! She is so sweet, so gentle, so loving. She wants to love. She wants to sit on your lap. She wants to bound over to you in the garden, she is just a little shy. Sometimes, when she thinks you aren’t watching, she will have a funny five minutes rolling around on her back or running herself up and down the fence for a scratch.

Winnie needs a home with patient owners with a resident dog for guidance. A family who has the time to let her decompress and come out of her shell. Her lead and harness training will need to continue in the home and garden to start with and as she gains confidence she can be introduced to the world and all the good things she has missed out on so far.
