Meet Winter

Winter is a 10 month old female Bichon-Poodle (Bichapoo) mix who weighs in at 10 pounds.  This dog's adoption fee is $800.  If you are still interested, please read more below.

Meet Winter.  If


ever a puppy deserves a loving forever home, Winter does.  She came to ARF neglected and filthy with a cough, fever and two infected ears.



On top of that, she broke her leg in November.



She has recovered from all of this!



While she may occasionally favor it, the vet says her leg has healed nicely and she is healthy and happy now! 


Winter has the softest coat and is absolutely stunning following her first professional groom.   



Winter will be your best friend and shadow.



She loves sleeping in bed with her head on her Foster Mommy’s shoulder—such a cuddle bug!  Her Foster Mommy is working on separation anxiety as well as potty training.  She is doing good with going potty outside with just an occasional accident.  Continued diligence from her new humans should help her succeed.  Winter should be in a home that only uses positive training, and until she has resolved her separation issues she should have a family that is home most of the time.  Although working on crate training, Winter gets upset if left in a crate.  Winter is learning good behavior and excelling and thriving daily. 


Winter is the sweetest!  She is super affectionate and playful, but also loves to sit quietly on the couch with you.  Her personality will shine through with patience and most of all love.   

Winter is microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations, and spayed. This dog's family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing.  A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you are interested in adopting this dog, fill out an Online Application today!  Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting.

No Longer Available for Adoption

Please see our other dogs or cats available for adoption.

All pets adopted from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation include the following as part of their adoption fee:

  • Spay/neuter or a certificate for a low-cost spay/neuter when medically recommended
  • Microchip and registration, a permanent identification to reunite lost pets with their owners
  • Initial de-worming and flea and tick treatment
  • Age-appropriate testing for heartworm/FIV-FELV
  • Age-appropriate vaccines
  • Pre-adoption medical exam
  • A certificate for a free healthy pet exam at one of A.R.F.’s participating veterinarians within 7 days of adoption
  • Offer for a no-risk 30 day free trial with Trupanion pet medical insurance

If a cat or dog is on our website, it is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, submit a no-commitment application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved in approximately 3-5 business days.

We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.

A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals.  The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we give priority to pre-approved applicants.

If you’re invited to meet an animal:

  • Plan to arrive on time (or early), as we cannot hold animals for any reason.
  • All human household members and dogs (if adopting another dog), must be present in order to be considered as a potential adopter.

Thank you for your interest and cooperation!
