Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill

We are excited to announce the Winston Churchill has been adopted and is now in a wonderful forever home.

The Winston Churchill joined Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue today. And he does have a little weight to throw around! His owner is moving to the Northeast to start medical school. She knew he would hate the cold weather and she knew with her studies and work, she would have no time to nurture him. She also knew he deserved better, so she reached out to rescue for help. She took 45 minutes today to tell him goodbye. Winston is 5 years old and weighs 64 pounds. He came with plenty of food, bedding and toys. He is very friendly and LOVES to play with his tennis ball. He is also very healthy, with the exception of some looseness in his right knee that we will have an orthopedic doctor examine. Our vet thinks it is a good possibility that therapy will solve the problem without surgery. He loves belly rubs more than any dog you have seen. He will be a very special friend for the right family.

5/22/17 Update:  Winston received a thorough examination by the orthopedic doctor this weekend. His legs are stable, but he walks with a little strange gait because of an old tear that has since healed. The doctor recommends a little therapy and no surgery. He is ready to move on to his foster home.

6/4/17 Update:  Oh. My. Goodness. Winston Churchill is such a slobbery ball of LOVE! He is always trying to sit on your feet or lie on top of you so you can pet him. He’s going to make some active family so happy. He loves chasing his ball, going on walks, and is always on the go. He reminds me of a baby in so many ways. He HATES taking his medicine, he’s scared of loud noises, and he loves it when we baby talk at him. The first time we put a harness on him in PetSmart, he pancaked and refused to get up for the ten minutes we were in there. After a week, he’s become used to having one on again and walks like a gentleman with it. We have had multiple instances of him marking things inside, so that’s the one behavioral issue with him, and I don’t think it’ll take too long to correct. He’s just so utterly perfect in every other way.
