Meet Winston (ID5687)

Winston is a very distinguished, salt and pepper gentleman looking for his forever home. He's a smaller male, with a shiny slickback coat. Winston's story is one we unfortunately know all too well....He was loved years ago. He had a human who taught him commands, let him sleep on the couch, gave him people food, and attention and love...and then he died. Winston and his other canine friends were rehomed with family and friends of his human, but they didn't love him. He lived outside, tied/chained for years. He has numerous scars on his legs from lying on a hard surface and around his neck from an imbedded collar. Eventually they decided he was too much trouble so they dumped him. The shelter was good to Winston, he was a favorite! But a shelter is no place for a senior, and fortunately, Rescue found him! He is an absolute joy to have. Loads of personality. Happy, easy, funny, snuggly boy. Winston is also VERY smart. He knows commands, he's crate and house trained, UTD on shots, neutered, HW neg and on preventative and microchipped. Loves to ride in the car! He's currently being fostered in a home with four other dogs, both male and female, and he's fine, but he prefers human attention. He's not into playing RR rough, but he likes to chase. The shelter said he was ok with cats but we've not confirmed...he's very interested in local wildlife. He would be happy as an only dog or with another senior dog. He's discovered chew bones and we're working on "sharing". We're also working on walking on a leash, as he was tied up we are using a harness...he is very strong and pulls on a traditional collar/lead. Winston is very easy going, loves people and older kids (10+ years). Super affectionate and gives lots of kisses. He has a good bark and will alert you to anyone in your yard. Despite his age, he's very active and has many years of love left to give. Est. DOB 10/16/2012
