Trixie webI'm Trixie, also known as Trixie Bear or Good Girl.  I came a long way to be able to find my forever home. I first started in Pasadena, California where I was enjoying the warm weather. Before I knew it, I was on a plane with my closest friends from the Pasadena Shelter and on my way to Saint Cloud, Minnesota. I was in the Tri-County Humane Society for a little under a week before I found my new parents. Life is great! I'm getting over my fear of men, and although it took me a little while to get used to my new family, I sure do love them now! Some of my favorite things are sleeping, snuggling up in warm blankets, playing with my favorite elephant toy, walking across my mom's laptop while she's working, and of course munching on treats! I am so thankful for all the love and help Tri County Humane Society gave me.

dog in winterDON'T LEAVE YOUR PET OUT IN THE COLD

We prefer that pets live comfortably in the home with their people rather than outdoors year-round, but on extremely cold days or nights, it really is necessary!  Minnesota winters are simply too harsh for even the most well equipped breeds.  Please follow these tips to help your pet remain safe, comfortable and happy:

  • Bring pets inside when the temperature is below freezing.
  • Dogs with well-insulated doghouses should be brought inside when the temperature drops below 5 degrees.
  • Hay can be used as an insulator.  Do not use blankets as they can get wet and freeze.
  • Doghouses must be large enough to allow the dog to sit and lie down comfortable but small enough to hold in body heat.  The floor should be raised off the ground and doorway should be covered with waterproof burlap or heavy plastic.
  • Doorways to doghouses should be facing away from the wind.
  • When outside, make sure your pet has the proper shelter and fresh water.  Don't let their water freeze!
  • Staying warm in the winter requires extra calories, so adjust your pet's diet accordingly.
  • Thoroughly wipe off your dog's legs and stomach when they come in out of the rain, snow or ice.  Salt, antifreeze or other chemicals could irritate their paws or harm your dog if ingested.
  • Animals like the sweet taste of antifreeze, and just a few sips can kill your pet.  Store antifreeze containers away from pets and promptly clean up any spills. Seek medical help if you suspect your pet has ingested antifreeze.
  • Remember, if it is cold for you, it is cold for your pet!  Some pets may even require a warm sweater for quick potty breaks or walks.
