Pet of the Week: Winnie

Becky's Pet Care


This is a sponsored post from Becky’s Pet Care, a professional pet care service in Northern Virginia.

Meet Winnie, a 1-year-old Collie who is looking for a forever home. Here is what the folks at Collie Rescue Inc. have to say about her:

Winnie is a young sable-and-white collie girl weighing in at around 50 pounds. She is one year old.

Winnie is full of love and playfulness with everyone. She has yet to meet a dog she does not like, and will frolic and play with other young pups, while trying to get the older dogs to join her in a collie romp, which is usually more like a high-speed game of tag.

Winnie enjoys spending time outside and loves to play with toys. She is very sweet with all the people she meets, including kids, but can be a bit enthusiastic in her greetings, so we are working on teaching her not to jump up.

Winnie was raised in a loving home, so she is very trusting and willing to please. Her ideal new home will provide her with ample playtime and a family who can spend time channeling her youthful exuberance through training and structured exercise.

Like most young herding types, she loves the challenge of puzzles and treat-dispensing toys and will work to get every last bit out.

Winnie will be a fine addition to a family who enjoys spending time outdoors with their dog, and would be extra happy if there were another dog to be her playmate. If she were an only-dog, since she is still a puppy at heart, she would appreciate regular organized playdates with friendly dogs in her neighborhood.

She is spayed. If you are interested in rescuing a collie, please complete this short adoption questionnaire. Our standard adoption fee is $350. This fee helps us to cover the expense of providing each dog with a Health Exam, Rabies/DHPP vaccines, Heartworm Test, Heartworm Preventative, Flea & Tick Protection, Microchip, Neuter/Spay, and a Bath.

Are you and Winnie a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you some treats and prizes.
