Why am I with a rescue group? Winston is a unique guy. He has been thru a few homes and a couple rescues during his life. The instability has made him a little uneasy and a bit anxious. He doesn't like to be left out because in his mind he will be left out alone. He will bark and run in circles for a bit. He is currently on medication to help ease some of his anxiety. We believe if you provide a stable and fulfilled life with this guy being part of your plans, these behavior traits could diminish.

Otherwise Winston is a well trained and obedient pup, though unpredictable. He walks like a calm gentleman on leash. He is crate trained and stays clean overnight. He knows all the basics and responds very well. He's not one to play with other dogs. He doesn't mind them and could live with or without them. He does have a little prey drive so cats in the home will probably present issues. He does like people but prefers the older more mature type who are not crawling around on the floor. He would also not do well for a first time dog owner, and would rather have a single or a couple that want to devote their lives to this dog. In return he will shower you with his devotion and gratitude. 

Winston can be a little off putting. He may make eye contact, probably a bark or two and will sit just far enough away. He doesn't like to be petted by strangers. Once he warms up he will allow a head pat but he's not an overly affectionate dog to new people.

I need at least 10 virtual adopters (sponsors) to help cover my monthly costs.  If I have medical challenges I need even more! r having to leave your home, you can have your very own online dog that will send you update emails, make Facebook posts, and be eternally grateful for your support!  Go to the donate link at the top of the page for instructions as to how to donate.
