It seems that Winston had a rough start and came to us in pretty bad shape, but he is now doing much better and looking for his forever home. Winston is a sweet but sensitive dog. Although we don’t know what happened to him before he came to us, he does show signs of trauma so really needs a patient and experienced dog owner. He needs a lot of positive reinforcement to help him feel safe and trust his person. He does not do well in busy or chaotic situations and will lash out when he feels overwhelmed or stressed so he needs a calm household with not too many visitors or people. He does have leash aggression to other dogs and doesn’t like dogs that are high energy, so he would do best as the only dog or with a dog that is calm and ok with just co existing.
Winston will thrive off of structure and consistency as this is what will make him feel safe and protected and will ensure he is set up for success. He does have a serious food aggression issue that he is currently working and is showing slow improvement. He also has some mild separation anxiety but this is improving more. Again, with Winston structure is key. Otherwise, he is an easy going boy that would love to find his forever home soon and we know once he finds what he needs that he will thrive.
