A warm welcome to Rachel and her beautiful pup, Winston! I absolutely love the name “Winston,” by the way. Love it!
Winston was recently diagnosed with cancer. It’s in the early stages and prognosis is good- let’s send lots of positive, healing vibes Winston and Rachel’s way. Lots of warmth to you both, it is wonderful to have you part of the R.O.A.R. Squad!

The Cowboy: Winston (4 1/2 year old American Bulldog) who Rachel found through Petfinder.com
Social Butterfly: When I first adopted Winston, I was concerned that people would be wary of him because of how big he was going to get (and people’s prejudices about certain breeds). Therefore, I made a distinct effort to ensure that he was well socialized with both people and other dogs. Sometimes, I think I did my job a little too well, as Winston now believes everyone he meets is just a new friend waiting to happen. And I needn’t have worried about people being afraid of him. There’s just something about Winston that attracts people. Wherever we go, people just want to meet him. And he’s more than happy to meet them!
Winston! Winston! When we walk in the mornings, the kids at the bus stop see him coming, and I hear a chorus of “Winston’s coming! Winston’s coming!” Then they all line up to pet him as he walks past. During our evening walks, our neighbors will stop on their way home to give Winston a pat from the car window.
Chick Magnet: He especially loves going through the Chik-Fil-A drive thru because they give him chicken nuggets!
