About Winnie

Winnie's First PictureThe local Humane Society knew that we wanted to adopt a dog in need. After just missing out on an adoption by minutes, we were next on the list to receive a call when the Humane Society received new dogs. One day they called us and told us about a Lhaso Apso. Since this was the size dog we were looking for, we told them we would get there as soon as possible to check her out.

The picture on the right is of Winnie when we first saw her. The Humane Society told us that her family was moving and they couldn't take her with them. Winnie was just under 3 years old and was physically in good shape. She was scared and shaking. But who wouldn't be after being given up, taken to a strange place with other dogs, and locked in a cage? We could see what a special girl she was and what a good temperament she had so we decided to adopt her.

Winnie On BoatShe quickly became a member of our family. Of course it took a while to get used to each other, but we don't think it was too tough on either of us. Winnie is so cute she attracts all kinds of attention. When out for her walks, or anywhere else, many people stop to tell us how cute she is. In fact, the picture on the left was a winner in the Pet Kingdom pet store (Algona, IA) calendar contest.

Some of her favorite things to do include playing tuggie, going for short car rides, keeping an eye on the family, spending time with her Grandma's and "Grandpaws," chasing squirrels and of course going for walks. After those walks she runs right into the house, sits on the mat in front of the oven just waiting for her "Winnie's Waggers" treat.

Because Winnie came to our family from a Humane Society, a portion of every sale will be donated to the shelter she came from and other shelters in the area.

Keep an eye on this website. We will be posting more pictures of Winnie as she continues to have new adventures. We are sure you will come to love her as much as we do.
