My name is Winky!
I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Winky is a dog that was removed from a large scale hoarding situation in December 2012. She arrived with terrible eye and skin infections, suffering from entropion (inward rolling of the eyelids), demodex mange and very pregnant. She had a litter of 11 puppies shortly after arrival with us - all of which have been happily adopted. We've treated her mange, her infections, and had surgery done to spay her and fix her eyelids and she has taken it all in stride. We are continuing to treat her skin as her fur is taking its time to regrow, though have recently started her on a treatment which seems to be showing great promise.
Personality wise, she is reserved and shy when there are new people or situations, but when in an environment she is comfortable in, with her foster mom she is an exuberant, silly dog! She is great with her foster dog and cat siblings. She doesnt often play, but seems comforted by their presence. She is house and crate trained, and can handle being left for the average work day. She can sometimes use her voice, so she should ideally go into a house vs apartment setting. She is not a dog that is suited to off lead work, nor would she be comfortable in a heavily populated area. Her ideal home would have another dog in it. She has shown discomfort when in the presence of kids, so she would prefer to go to a home with older (teenage) kids, or a child free home.
