About Me:

**UPDATE 4/26/2014** Winston has gone into a foster home where he will remain until he gets adopted. Prior to sending Winston to his foster home we performed a dental cleaning (he needed 2 of the big  molars in the back removed), complete blood work, urinalysis, acth stim (test to make  sure his medication is the correct dose), we did his nails and anal glands plus  we did  an ultrasound of his entire abdomen to check for tumors or abnormalities and nothing abnormal was found. We sent Winston with two months worth of medication and dog food and we will continue to pay all of his expenses forever. **UPDATE**2/08/2013: Winston has been diagnosed with cushings disease and is now on medication that he will need for  the rest of his life. Winston WILL live a normal life with this medication. Please consider adopting this wonderful guy or make a donation to help with the cost of his medication. Meet Winston. Winston is a ten year old smooth coat red neutered male dachshund (weighs 17lbs) who needs a new home. Winston was surrendered to rescue when his family lost their home and had to move in with friends who wouldn't allow them to bring their dog. Winston was raised in a family with children and he is good with other dogs of all sizes and sexes. Winston is housetrained, crate trained and doggie door trained and he is neutered/microchipped/current on vaccines. Winston is an energetic dog, he acts like a 2 year old, not at all like a senior. This busy bee would love to go on walks and to the dog park, he loves his toys (a little too much) and is just overall an happy dog.  If you would like to meet Winston please complete an adoption application by clicking here and than call Brenda at 256-0321. We do require a complete application, a home visit, an adoption donation of $200.00 and a signed adoption contract at the time of adoption
