When Winston first came to us from Texas, he was a nervous fellow. Calm, quiet, well-behaved, but not much personality shining through. This guy is just too smart to settle in easily, and he needed time to figure out that he was safe and loved. Less than a week later, his head was up and his tail was wagging, and we were finally able to get to know the real Winston (who is now Winnie, since every good boy needs a good nickname.) Winnie is a dignified gentleman who was overlooked in Texas because of his age, size, color, and some medical issues. His heartworms were treated, his masses removed, and although he needs eye cream for dry eye and pain meds for old joints, Winnie is now our easiest and most adoptable foster.

His puppy days behind him, Winnie now spends his time on his bed in front of the heat vent. He uses the ramp to go outside to potty, and needs a ramp or strong person to load him into the car. He walks well on a leash, gets along with dogs and cats, is friendly and polite with new people, and is in general just a very good dog. He is a handsome boy for sure, but when you see that chonky tail wag you will absolutely fall in love with Winnie!
