NB: We do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25. It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia pounds over the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.

Winston is a sweet little puppy, in a big dog body!  Just over a year old, Winston has some learning to do but he is ready, willing and able.  Winston is thought to be a Great Dane cross, but what with?  We might never know.  He has a delightfully soft and shiny coat coupled with a very pretty face so whatever the combination, it worked!

Given his young age, Winston still has some puppy traits.  He loves to play with people and dogs and he would say cats too, but not all cats are going to enjoy playing with Winston.  Dog savvy cats might be ok.  As much as he loves a game, he’s also happy to have frequent naps in between.

Although we believe Winston likes children, he is big enough to knock over little ones accidentally so a family with older children would be a better fit for him.

Winston would love to live with another dog who wants to play with him.  A dog who is not afraid of his size and is happy for bursts of play with rests in between would be perfect.  A dog who is a bit older than him, who can show him the ropes would work well.

Winston will need an owner committed to exercising him and training him.  He needs to learn to walk well on the lead and to know how to moderate his excitement when he meets anyone new amongst other things – VicDRG will certainly provide advice to his new family on the training he will need. Overall Winston is a lovely dog who wants to be loved and will thrive in the right home.

Medical Notes:

All our dogs are desexed, C5 vaccinated with intranasal, microchipped, wormed and flea treated. All necessary vet work such as dentals, surgery, eye treatment is also carried out. We are no longer heartworm testing as we have not had one positive test since we began in 2006. If a dog comes to us on heartworm treatment this is continued.
