We have some good news! Wynston met with our trainer yesterday and did so well! We are very encouraged that he will thrive in the right home, with someone working with him. He is in urgent need of a foster or foster to adopt home as he is spending time in boarding currently.
Wynston came to us after his owner lost his housing. We were told he was about 7, but our veterinarian thinks he is much younger, maybe 3ish. He loves all people and will slobber you with kisses if you let him! Due to his strength and energy, we are recommending a home without young children. He will love them, but could accidentally hurt them.
Wynston needs a special owner; a strong, gentle leader. He needs someone who is committed to working with him on obedience training. He has a short attention span and lacks focus, but with positive encouragement, and focus exercises (watch me command) this can be patiently overcome.
I observed him with our trainer today. Within 10 minutes she had him walking nicely on a leash in the play room. She encouraged him with positive words and treats. It was amazing to see this as he has always pulled on a leash prior.
Wynston also has a habit of watching out the window and barking. Our trainer was able to correct this today also. We believe with consistent training, he can learn to watch in a calm manner.
Wynston needs a hero. He is our longest resident, and while we know homes without cats, kids, and dogs, are really hard to find, we have faith that the perfect home is out there for him!
Wynston is UTD on shots, preventative, micro-chipped, and neutered!
Wynston’s adoption fee is sponsored, and adopters must live within 175 miles of the Quad City Area.
