I don't think anyone knows (meaning he's a mutt). I read about him in Volume 7 Issue 2 of Animal Wellness but there may be more current info on his website.

I keep thinking he's a wind-up toy,with his little pink tounge always hanging out,but I guess the video proved me wrong:laughing:

He is adorable!!
But it seems as if there is only one Mr Winkle (that's what makes him so popular) :D
I'm just happy to see that Mr Winkle is using his fame to help less fortunate animals in need :love: Way to go Mr Winkle!!

He's a super cute dog. I think my Cooper is a super cute doggie too.;)

There are others out there though. I would suggest that you call your local shelter and ask them to put you in touch with a small dog rescue organization. I bet you'll find your own Mr. Winkle and you'll be back here telling us your baby is even cuter than the original !!

He is insanely cute! Definitely a mutt, but probably has some Pom in him. Funny, to me, my dog is the cutest in the world and I frequently tell him that :lovestruck: joeysmama is right, I bet when you get your own dog, you will likely think he/she is the cutest dog ever!

I heard it's actually not abnormal for a little dogs tounge to hang out like that. It doesn't effect his eating or anything, so it's just all that more cuter in my opinion. :lovestruck:

you ever do that as a kid? i did. i had a sore tongue for a few hours. i think of that whenever i see little dogs with their tongues hanging out. :)
