He is small – about 10 pounds.
He is older – about 12.
He is also rather frail and his hearing does not seem to be very good but his vision is still there. When first received as a foster he had a hard time getting around but has gotten much stronger. He had many teeth pulled and his tongue sometimes will hang out the right side of his mouth. He can get up and down stairs. He doesn’t really run and play. He isn’t a pushover though – a couple of times he has protected the rawhide he had from his foster siblings.
He is a very happy loving boy. He loves to be held and will follow me around much of the time. He even loves to be held when I practice piano even though I doubt he can really hear it. He is independent and will find he favorite bed to go to – upstairs or downstairs.
He has never barked and does not need any special care other than being loved. He gets along very well with his 3 foster siblings. He eats very well and has put on sufficient weight since being rescued.
He is the perfect companion for someone who wants a special soul who is low key and very loving.
He will need another dog in the home or someone that is home most of the time. Children in the home need to be at least 10 years old. Winston is located in IL
