Winnie Needs A Home FAST In Utica/Rome – She Is Extremely Sad In Shelter
Don't you just LOVE those ears? Winnie is desperately looking for a forever home. She's not doing well at the Herkimer County Humane Society. She's very depressed and is constantly in a state of fight or flite, which is not good for her.
Winnie is a 5-year-old mixed breed that loves all people. She's housebroken, good with cats, good on a leash, and great in the car. She is on a low-cost medication for seizures, which she will need for the rest of her life.
This beautiful girl needs a home with patience as she is reactive to some dogs if she feels threatened by their high-energy. This behavior can be fixed, and volunteers at HCHS are working hard to help her learn how to deal with it. She is trying very hard to learn to cope and is making progress, but Winnie needs to be in a home, away from shelter stress, with someone who can spend more time helping her. She lived in a home for the past two years, but her owner didn’t know how to help her and probably inadvertently caused the behavior to escalate.
Can you help Winnie? She is so sad because she doesn’t know why she can’t be on her couch, in her home, and has to sleep in a kennel.

Pablo is still looking for a home. He has been at a shelter for over 1,000 days. That's his entire life!
Pablo is on the smaller side, probably around 45 lbs. He is extremely friendly and loves people. He is good on a leash, although he enjoys chasing squirrels and chipmunks or anything he sees while out on walks. He gets excited because he never had the chance to leave the concrete kennel where he was before Herkimer County Humane Society. He is starved for attention and does whatever he can to get someone to notice him. Herkimer County Humane Society says:
What Pablo really needs in order to reach his potential, is someone who can expose him to the life he missed growing up locked in a kennel and teach him how a good dog needs to behave. He needs patience and socialization. For the time being, he needs a home without cats or young kids.
If Pablo sounds like the kind of guy you could help, meet him. He would really love to meet you!! The Herkimer County Humane Society is located at 514 State Route 5S Mohawk, New York. (315) 866-3255. He has been altered and is up to date on his shots.
