Winston-ADOPTED!

Winston is a super-cute 1.5 year-old Boston Terrier mix male who was surrendered by his owner along with his buddy Walter because her boyfriend was abusing the dogs. We don’t know what this abuse entailed but we’re glad she made the decision to get them out of a dangerous situation. The Good Samaritan that saved them contacted us for help placing them so both dogs made the trip to Canine Lifeline so they relax in a foster home while searching for a permanent new home. Winston and Walter are a bonded pair so do need to be adopted together. They love each other—will play together and then curl for a nap with each other. Both boys also get along well with other dogs so probably would be fine joining a family who already has a canine companion or two. Winston hasn’t shown any adverse behaviors as a result of the abuse. He seems to love people and enjoys snuggling with his human friends. Winston does well on a leash, has excellent crate manners, and is likely to be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. He and Walter are going to be so grateful to be welcomed into a family where they’ll never have to hear a harsh word or feel a heavy hand again. Winston weighs about 15 pounds and his adoption fee is $325. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
