Winnie was being raised and trained to be an assistance dog for someone with a physical disability or who is deaf or hard-of-hearing. In May, 2019, she took the next step in her journey and entered Advanced Training in the Service stream and in August, 2020, she completed Advanced Training and was matched with her client.
