Winnie was almost put down

Unlike the typical stray, Winnie has a wolf-like appearance with a coat of cream coloured fur.

It has been speculated that Winnie could be a cross-breed.

Winnie has a sad story though.

She was almost put down by her previous owners as a puppy.

At nine months old, Winnie's previous owners consulted a vet to euthanise her, according to a local dog welfare page, Chained Dog Awareness in Singapore (CDAS).

Fortunately, Winnie was saved.

Went through rehab and training

Subsequently, Winnie went through six months of rehabilitation, and is now ready to meet a new pawrent.

Winnie has been staying with her foster parents for the past month.

She is very affectionate and enjoys hugs and kisses, CDAS said in its post.

Call for a suitable adopter

According to the post, interested adopters have to be patient as Winnie still has some areas to work on.

They include "areas of boundaries, protectiveness over food and walking manners".

CDAS said that an active family, preferably single or couple, is preferred.

There is no mention of whether Winnie is HDB-approved or not.
