Meet Winston, a gorgeous soft and snuggly young man who will melt your heart in exchange for a calm, peaceful and love-filled environment. While we don’t have a full history on this charming 3-year-old mini poodle’s past, it seems he fended for himself on the streets for a while, and as a result is always on guard and protective. He bonds very intensely with his caregiver, staying very close by. He enjoys being cuddled, will play fetch for a while, but is happier to just hang out by your side. Probably due to his past, he can at times exhibit protective and territorial behaviour when someone he is less trusting of comes into the picture.

The best home for him would be quiet and serene without children, preferably a single person or a couple. Winston is house trained and is content to be left at home alone for a few hours. He particularly adores a good walk and can walk for a long time if you’ll take him. He tap dances gleefully when he sees his leash.

Winston has IBD and his digestion and appetite are well controlled, especially in a relaxed environment. He tips the scale at nearly 17 lbs, which is a perfect weight for him. He is neutered, vaccinated and on heartworm and tick prevention.
