Winter is a very special dog for many reasons. She is beautiful, loving and smart. There is no doubt she is a favorite of all volunteers at the rescue and is known for her smile and for quickly flipping onto her back to ask for tummy rubs. The other thing that makes her special is she is deaf. She has been taught many hand signals and knows sit, lay down, stay and come. She is a very quick learner and actually loves performing all her tricks for treats. She absolutely loves,loves, loves, car rides and ice cream. She and Belle, her neighbor at the shelter, are BFFs. They both love to run and wrestle and then fall into a heap. Winter is not a fan of cats. While she can be timid when first meeting new people, it does not take long for her to accept you and wrap you around her little paw.
