We do not feel Winston is in a position to be re-homed at the moment. Winston has extensive behavioural issues that we are currently addressing with our behaviourist. Unfortunately we have not been able to successfully introduce Winston to new members of staff so therefore feel he is not able to be introduced to members of the public. We are not currently taking any adoption inquiries for him until further notice. Should this change we will update the website.
Winston came to us as his owner couldn't cope with his behaviour. There had been a lot of upheaval in his life the year prior to arriving with us as his owner went to prison. Suddenly Winston's life was in turmoil. The owner's ex partner took Winston in, but with many comings and goings in the house and no one who understood him, he started to display unwanted behaviour. He would guard the house from anyone coming in and he would lunge at people and dogs on walks. Winston was absolutely fine with the family he knew and loved, they could do anything to him and he would let them. His misguided attempt to protect his family resulted in him coming to us.
Upon his arrival all of the kennel staff and some trusted dog walkers soon got to know Winston, we all won him over with sausages and walks! However Winston is now very selective with his friends but is a firm favourite amongst all that know and love him here. Once he knows you he is a loving, affectionate, playful big baby!
Winston now has his own room here rather than a kennel. He is always found snoozing underneath his blanket on his favourite armchair! He loves to relax and likes his room to be kept toasty and warm! Staff happily spend time cuddling him and he comes to spend time with us every day in our office. His dog walker takes him out for a little drive and a walk every day and he is very content and happy with his cosy life here. He knows he is safe and loved.
When Winston arrived we had to take him to the vets to repair cherry eye in both his eyes. He is now on eye drops every day for the rest of his life.
Winston is now a sponsor dog. If you chose to sponsor him we can guarantee you some very entertaining photo's as he likes to show off to the camera as you can see from the collage below! As Winston has ongoing eye issues and medication your sponsor money will be much appreciated towards the costs!
