Likes:
Me! She's truly the most devoted friend I have or will ever have. She also loves food. And she loves puppies and kittens and even baby rats. She's got a true momma dog spirit. She loves rides in the car

Pet-Peeves:
not so fond of going to the vets (tembles like you'd imagine a Chihuahua doing) but can't blame her with her history. Ever the peacemaker, she hates agruments - be it 2 people, 2 dogs or a person and a dog, always gets in between and starts licking someon

Favorite Toy:
anything soft with a squeaker

Favorite Food:
anything even remotely edible

Favorite Walk:
loves Fort Funston and Point Isabel

Best Tricks:
Bark, growl, howl, sit up pretty, head on paws, crawl, roll over, left paw, right paw, Bean in the trickster!

Arrival Story:
Winnie was my first APBT (American Pit Bull Terrier) and the reason for my love of the breed. I never planned on getting a "pit bull". I worked in a veterinary hospital and a client of ours had a AKC/UKC Am staff that I had always adored. She came in for her pregnancy xrays and I told him that I'd love to come and see her pups (never intending on getting one myself, I was on the hunt for an Australian Shepherd but I just love pups and wanted to squeeze em). I went when they were 8 weeks old and the second I walked in the room I was drawn to Winnie. I picked her up and while I played and held her brothers (she was the only girl) I couldn't take my eyes off her. I told him I had to have her. I had brought a sane friend with me and she made me leave without the pup, told me to sleep on it to be sure. I did and for the next 48 hours I could not think of anything else but "my puppy." I went and got her and we haven't looked back. 8 years later it is still the best decision I've ever made

Bio:
Winnie was also my first UKC show dog and first UKC Conformation Champion. Winnie's the best. She's had some bad luck in the health department. She had complications following her spay and ended up paralyzed from the middle of her back down. Her prognosis was not so good but after 6 months of acupuncture once a week, hydrotherapy (swimming) twice a week and having a chiropractor come every 4 days, she walks and runs and does just fine (kinda funny like a rabbit but it works). After recovering from that ordeal she was diagnosed with multiple grade II mast cell cancer. We did chemotherapy for 4 months but unfortunately she did not respond. She was given 6 months-1 year of life and I'm happy to say that 2 years later she is still here and still feeling good. Winnie is my true doggie soulmate
