About Winnie:

Winnie is a medium-sized, female Huntaway, aged 7 years old.


Winnie is a black, un-spayed, female huntaway.
She has been a working dog on a farm her whole life but isn’t getting the amount of work that she used to so is looking for a new home with a slower pace.
She is in good health and would be ideal for a lifestyle block.
I think she would also adjust to town/pet life well if she is provided with light to moderate exercise daily.
Winnie is very special to me so will always be welcome back in my home if her new home falls through or they are unable to look after her anymore.

Is Winnie used to children? Yes.
Is Winnie used to cats? Don’t know.
Is Winnie toilet-trained? Yes.
Is Winnie used to stock? Yes.
Is Winnie used to chickens? No.
How well does Winnie get on with other dogs? Great.
Winnie lives in Blenheim or Nelson, South Island.
A bit about Winnie’s personality:

She has a quiet loving nature and is very friendly. I have often wondered if she has some Labrador in her breeding somewhere as she is very similar in nature to a lab.
She is soft natured so responds well to a growly voice if she is doing something wrong.
Enjoys playing with other dogs occasionally and is gentle with other dogs and pups and is good around children.
She isn’t a big fan of water so swimming isn’t her thing.
If she is in a kennel most of the day she can whine and be excited when you go to let her out but settles down as soon as she is let out.
She hardly ever goes to the toilet in her kennel and barks constantly if she does desperately need to go toilet so would be happy to live inside the house. I imagine she would let you know when she needed to go outside.
She loves to find a bone to chew on, so may get into rubbish if it is left laying around, although I have never had this problem with her.
