A little about me:
- Very shy. Needs a patient, kind, calm family/home
- Unknown history with small animals/cats - Intros must be supervised
- Unknown history with children - Sudden movements/noises may startle
- Potential for select dog in home pending successful dog-to-dog introduction
- comes with two free one on one training sessions and a session of "Fearful Fido" classes

Hi there, I'm Winter! I'm a very shy girl when you first meet me so I am going to need a family willing to go very slowly with introductions, training, and socialization. I know that this will need some patience and understanding from both of us, but I promise I will shower you with all my love to make up for it. Because I do find loud things scary and stressful, I would like a calm household so I can practice my training with positive reinforcement. The adoption and behavior teams will be here to give you lots of support as we get to know each other. I even come with a free session of Fearful Fido classes, to help you learn how to help me gain confidence!

Once I am comfortable I LOVE to play and snuggle! I would adore a doggy buddy who wants to play as much as I do. So if you're looking for someone smart, sweet, and fun to be your BFF, tell the adoption team that Winter sent you!

Note that many dogs do not reach full size until they are about a year and a half old. The weight listed here is the dog's current weight.
