Name/Nicknames: Winston, Winnie, Dubya
How did I get to ARLP: I was originally picked up by ARLP as a stray puppy with my brother. I was adopted when I was about 9 months old, but unfortunately my dad couldn’t keep me for economic reasons. Now I’m back with my old foster mama!
Hobbies: Curling up next to mom and sleeping, playing tug with my foster sister Julia, trying to get my foster cat brothers to play, keeping a diligent watch on the sidewalk and letting mom know if anyone is walking by, tearing up stuffy toys when I can, and chowing on my Nylabone!
Tricks/Commands: I know sit and I’m good at waiting for my food. Mom says we need to work on my patience because I get REALLY excited when people come over to visit. I’m hoping to get enrolled in the next Rott ‘N Pittie ed class so I can put my smart brain to work!
Crate Trained: Absolutely. I spend most of the day in my crate when mom is at work. I don’t mind sleeping in there either, but mom often spoils me by letting me sleep in her room.
Potty Trained: I’m good at this, but I do dribble once in a while when I get excited. I need a pretty regular schedule but I try really hard not to have accidents.
Size in pounds: I think I’m around 50 pounds now, but I’m still on the skinny side. I’ve got really long legs for a pit!
Activity Level: Moderate. I’d probably run around with you for hours if you wanted me to, but I’m cool with just chilling around the house too. When I do get the zoomies my big legs go flying and sometimes I have trouble keeping them under me!
Fun things I do: Mom says I have a stealth tongue – I get a kiss in when she’s least expecting it! I actually love to cuddle up with my kitty brothers for a nap once in a while. I’m not a huge fan of the snow, but when it’s nice out I love to lay in the backyard and chew on a nice big stick.
Socialization/who I currently live with: I live with my foster mom, my pittie foster sister Julia, my chihuahua foster brother Charlie, and my two foster kitty brothers, Beckham and Rook. I love them ALL! When meeting new dogs I like slow introductions, but I usually get along with anyone after we’ve been properly acquainted.
