Winni has adoption pending – yeah! She is no longer accepting adoption applications but hopes you’ll consider another CCRT dog for your family.
Winni (short for Winnipeg) recently into the care of CCRT and is learning the ropes at her foster home. She is approximately 2 years old, 8 lbs and overall, seems pretty healthy (although she may have some allergies that cause a minimal amount of itching).
Winni is a saucy and bossy little girl. She is very active, loves to run and enjoys time outside when it is not too cold. She also enjoys being petted, getting attention, snuggling and giving kisses. Winni loves to sleep in a big dog bed, buried under blankets, with a collection of selected toys.
Her favourite activity is playing with toys, especially her ball. She would play ball all day long if she could. Careful: she will destroy a ball in 5 minutes, so supervision is required for safety (she will rip fuzz off and then chew the rubber to pieces). Winni is very toy driven, and she is also very protective of such items. She can display aggression towards other dogs in her foster home when they go too close to her toys (according to Winni, they are all her toys).
Winni is 80% housebroken. She knows to go outside, but still has the occasional accident. She loves going for walks and gets really worked up in the process of leaving. She will pull, bark, and growl as she tries to get out the door as fast as she can. She settles by the time she hits the bottom of the driveway. She does pull on walks and will bark at other people and dogs. She needs someone who has the patience and inclination to work on some of these issues. She does, however, travel well in the car.
Unfortunately, Winni does not play well with others, and should be an only pet (although we might make an exception for a small, patient, confident resident dog that has no interest in toys). Winni is currently living with several other small dogs whom she targets, bullies, and can be aggressive towards. The behaviours become worse if the other dogs are around any toys laying on the ground.
Due to Winni’s reactivity around toys and uncertain situations, her forever home should not have children under the age of 14 years. Ultimately, she’s a bright, sassy little gal who needs the right human to help work on some of her behavioural issues and let her true personality shine.

I’m hoping she’s available soon !
I’m ready to make the adoption
I’m hoping to adopt her. I saw her on “Adopt a Pet”, which led me to CCRT !
This is the exact look and energy level I’m looking to adopt… plus Chihuahuas are as Loyal and Loving as a pet may be. Love begets Love ! I know… I Live it… That’s the glue to any Healthy Long Term Relationship!! Without Question!!
I’m not surprised by her high energy. She’s a very gifted Chihuahuas athletically. As a Professional Coach and athlete, I believe she needs someone with a stronger Confidence than Winni, so she learns to utilize her gifts in a healthier manner. She can be guided into becoming a supportive leader. That’s the great thing about Chihuahuas. They’re very intelligent. I just trained one to be more mindful, and now she’s enjoying life at a whole new level and loves it. She sees the results and realizes she is cared for completely!! I believe Winni has the ability to do more for others in her life, other dogs that are insecure and people that give to her. Winni is gifted and talented, she just needs the right Leader to guide her into healthier choices !! Through Love !! She’ll see it… experience it… and realize how much peaceful her life has become. Being a taker will destroy Winni !! I Hope Delores with my support has the opportunity to work with Winni. Love is the answer ! Not No but Yes in a loving way !!
I keep checking !
Everything about her makes a great fit for me…
Her energy level, athleticism, and self confidence !
Hope for her to become my best friend soon 🙂
We live in Red Deer AB, do you adopt to out-of-province adopters. We have a male Chipin that looks a lot like Winni and we’ve been looking for another wonderful chi. Is Winni a female? Is she good with older children (14 & 17)? Our chi will be 2 in January and has been neutered. We are interested if it is a possibility. Thank you.
CCRT is a national dog rescue and we accept adoption applications from anywhere in Canada!
I’d love to adopt Winni, shes adorable
In that case, you’re welcome to submit an adoption application for her and a Regional Coordinator will be in touch!
