Winston – Now adopted

Winston is a sweet chilled out boy who likes a fuss and to be around people.

He is very playful and loves rough & tumble but footballs are his favourite toy.

He is very good on his lead and is happy around other dogs although he sometimes likes to hump them.

Winston has no food aggression and follows basic commands such as sit and paw. He can get excitable when playing rough, but he is a young boy still learning the boundaries.

Dogs Name:  Winston

Age:  1 Years 4 months

Can live with children:  Yes

Can live with dogs:  Yes

Can live with cats:  Untested but has seen them on walks without reaction

Current location:  Wiltshire

Things to be Aware of:

Winston came into foster with quite a few issues with his skin and his ears which we felt was down to food allergy. He is on Royal Canin Hypoallergenic dog food which we would like him to stay on.

He has CLX wipes for his skin and ears and whilst he isn’t keen on them, he tolerates them.

Its very important that Winston’s skin care regime is continued as and as such, experience of the Bulldog breed will be required because if his skin flares up he will need regular medicated baths and possibly medication.

 The Ideal Family:

We think Winston would be very well suited to a family home where there is another playful dog for company.

He will be equally happy in a dog free home if there is a lot of interaction and where he will not be left for any length of time.

Winston loves the children in foster so we are happy for him to be rehomed to a family where children are dog savy as he is very playful and will jump up.

Winston has a crate in his foster home and he will happily take himself off for a nap when he wants some peace and quiet.

 Other comments:

Winston has done very well since he came to us. He has been neutered and we are continuing with his skin regime which is working well for him… it is essential this is continued.

Winston is up to date with his vaccinations, is toilet trained and travels well in the car so we will consider a new home up to 4 hours from his current location and where he will be left for no more than 4 hours during the day.

If you have any questions, please ask Tia Martin foster mum to Winston

Winston’s adoption fee is £400 and will need to be paid in full prior to him going home which will also be subject to a home check.
