Winston – Black/Grey Doodle, 2 years old, 78lbs

Psstttt…hi you, over there. The one with the big heart and the soft touch. Do you need a best buddy? You do! Me too! Let’s chat and see if we are a match. My name is Winston and though I am 2 years old, I am just now learning how to be a dog. My first two years were not the best and very lonely. But onward and upward! Luckily for me, I made my way to LRRF and my wonderful foster mom is teaching me all about life as a loved dog. Do you know about this activity called snuggling? Wowza it is amazing! It is new to me, but I am a big fan. That soft warm touch on my fur is just the best!

I am shy. When I first meet you, I probably won’t run up and cover you with kisses. I am just not that kinda of guy. I did not have much human interaction in my past life, and the interaction I did have, most was quite negative. It takes me time to feel comfortable around new people. I will need a patient family who understands that I guard my heart for a while before I feel ready to let down my walls. I know that can be a challenge for some, but trust me, when I do let down my guard, you will be rewarded with a true love and loyalty that knows no bounds. I am very well-mannered – I am housetrained, crate-trained and great with dogs of all sizes. I am learning my commands and I would love to continue my education with my forever family. Now that I learned how to snuggle, it is one of my favorite activities. I love the soft touch of my people – it really makes me feel loved and secure. I am confident that you will find my touch makes you feel loved and secure too! After all, I would love to be your very best buddy!

Winston is a special dog who will need a special family. Winston is quite reserved and his new family will have to be patient and supportive as Winston finds his confidence during the transition to his forever home. With a bit of time and a lot of love, he will blossom with his family.  Ultimately, Winston’s family will be rewarded for their patience and find Winston to be a happy playful dog with a delightfully sweet & affectionate nature!
