About the animal:

Winnow is an 8-month old heeler mix. She is a very sweet dog who starts out shy around new people, and then becomes very affectionate after warming up to you. More than anything, she enjoys playing with other dogs and romping around at the dog park. At home, she loves squeaking her squeaky toys, wrestling with stuffed animals, and sitting next to you on the couch.

She is up-to-date on her vaccinations and is in good health. We’ve trained her on a variety of commands – sit, come, stay, wait, touch, and a lot more. She learns quickly. It helps that she is very treat-motivated! We are working on training out her separation anxiety through slow desensitization. As for walks, she is pretty good – no leash reactivity, and no apparent fear of passing cars, bikes, street noise, etc.

We are looking to place her in a new home due to unexpected personal circumstances, and so we think another family would make her happier. She seems happy in the calm environment of our home, but could also adjust to a busier environment (especially if other dogs are involved).
