If you’re looking for a fun, friendly, and playful pup, then look no further Winter! Although he’s named after a cold season, he has a warm heart and is full of love! Winter loves to fetch a tennis ball almost as much as he loves to snuggle with his human and canine friends on the couch. He loves wrestling with his sister, Autumn, and running around the yard with his human friends. Winter is still a puppy, and he’s still learning his manners. He is a bit nippy and jumpy when he’s excited, but he quickly calms down. He is also working on his potty training, so having a crate is very helpful. He sleeps in his crate through the night, when his foster family isn’t home, or when his foster family can’t be in the room with him (ie, we’re in a zoom meeting), and he feels very comfortable sleeping there. Winter is learning to walk on a leash but doesn’t quite the get whole concept yet. He responds well to treat training and is a very fast learner, and we’re sure that it won’t be long before he is showing off his manners to all dog lovers in the neighborhood!
Winter can be a little nervous in new situations, so he needs some extra patience when being introduced to new people and places. However once he feels comfortable, he comes out of his shell and enjoys exploring.
Winter’s foster family includes older kids and a resident cranky senior dog. He loves romping with the kids, and he doesn’t bother our older dog when she wants to be left alone (although he clearly wishes she would play more!). His foster family also includes a person in a wheelchair, and he’s not at all bothered by the extra hardware. Winter would definitely enjoy sharing a home with another canine companion, but would likely also thrive as the only dog soaking up all the attention.
is up to date on vaccinations and is spayed or neutered. (puppies under the age of 6 months may not be sterilized prior to adoption, if this is the case your adoption coordinator will discuss the process with you).
To adopt or learn more about Winter, you must fill out an adoption application. To find the application, visit our website: WWW.SANDYPAWSRESCUE.COM ** PLEASE READ: If a dog/puppy is listed, then s/he is currently available for adoption. Their information is correct to the best of our abilities and the information we have been given as of the day of posting. In some cases this dog may be pending an adoption already, and their profile has not been updated yet. Please note, SPR does not guarantee the breed of any dog or puppy unless stated otherwise. All breeds listed are educated best estimates by transferring shelter staff, our volunteers or our vets. The dog may have some genetic material of an American Staffordshire Terrier (pit bull). The dogs are usually mixes of many breeds, making them the All American MUTT. Our dogs are rescued from various situations (kill-shelters, owner surrenders, strays, etc). It is most likely that both their parents were strays and mixes of some sort.
If you are interested in this dog, you MUST submit an application. Sandy Paws Rescue does not a have a public shelter in Mass, so there is no building you can visit without an appointment. Our dogs live in private foster homes or boarding kennels down south until adopted, and foster care homes through out MV, Cape Cod and other parts of MA. A majority of our dogs are adopted/spoken for prior to transport and release from state mandated isolation. To learn more about our rescue, adoption fees, and procedures, review the list of FAQ’s on our website at WWW.SANDYPAWSRESCUE.COM
**The FIRST step in adopting an animal from our rescue is to submit a completed adoption application.
