More: Winnie is a rescue dog from South Carolina. Winnie was found wandering on her own as a puppy in Georgia and was taken to a local animal shelter. I had been spamming my husband with adoptable puppy photos for months when I came across Winnie's photo and story. I immediately sent her photo to my husband who replied, "Can you send me more photos of that pup?" I turned around and submitted an adoption application for her without telling him. One month later we brought her home and she's been the best adventure buddy we could ever ask for and the love of our life.
