Añejo Mockingbird

Used to be this place was mostly about music and pop culture, but it's slowly morphed into a launching pad for finding our foster greyhounds new homes. So be it. We love the hounds and are more than happy to use our modest little blog page to reach out and snag some attention for these greyt dogs... Oh, we'll still post the occasional odd music review or rant at the state of the Redskins from time to time, but they'll hafta take a back seat to the dogs 'til further notice

Winston wants to meet you!

That handsome hound with the white coat and playful attitude is Winston!
Winston will be 2 years old in September so he's still got some puppy in him that itches to get out from time to time. Winston loves to play and he's the classic greyhound stuffie distibutor. He'll completely empty a basket full of stuffies one by one and carry them around and drop 'em wherever he happens to be going. Then he'll go back and do it all again. A home with lots of stuffies and yard to take them into would make Winston a happy camper!
Winston is learning to walk on the leash and is getting the hang of it but he still needs some practice. He's one of the minority of greyhounds who is very vocal. Winston will bark and growl at noises and movement from outside his area so he does have some potential as a bit of a watchdog as far as alerting you to movement and noise. He's friendly to strangers as most hounds are though, so he'll be happy to watch someone cart off your jewelry once he's done barking :-)  Winston gets along well with the resident hound and he does like to rough-house a bit so potential adopters with older, less exuberant hounds may want to pick a gentler type companion.  Winston will be trying steps this week and we'll see if we  can cat-test him but I suspect he has a fairly high prey drive from watching him so far, so I'm not thinking he's going to be small animal safe. He's eating and sleeping well and has done real well with housebreaking. He's a really fun dog to be around and he certainly makes you smile because he's so full of life (and a little bit of mischief)! Winston would make a nice hound for an active household and would probably do well as a jogging companion. We'll update later in the week, in the meantime call Denise if you think Winston might be a fit for you.
