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

Music geek who appreciates everything from power-pop to indie-rock and most everything in between. I especially dig Reggae and its predecessor, Ska.

Winston wants to play!

If you're looking for a hound that enjoys running and romping around, Winston's got you covered. Winston still has a good bit of puppy in him which translates into a little more energy than you usually get from older hounds. Winston absolutely loves dragging stuffies around and and he often walks through the house carrying them in his mouth for minutes at a time.

Winston would definitely benefit from going into an active household with older kids/teens or other hounds to roughhouse with. Those with toddlers will want to look elsewhere; Winston is too big and boisterous to be around small children.
Winston successfully navigated steps last week and is learning to walk in a more reserved manner on the leash - it's a work in progress. Winston has a fairly high prey drive so we're not recommending him for homes with cats.
Winston is eating and sleeping well and is housebroken. He's also a fairly quick learner, though his inner puppy sometimes takes over. Although Winston sounds like a handful, he's really not. His energy comes in spurts and then he's back to typical hound laziness. As long as he gets excercise daily he'll be fine. As I noted previously, he's a bit of a barker when he hears things so you'll definitely be aware of people/animals approaching your area.

As you can see Winston loves his chill time just as much as his playtime. He's a happy, loyal hound who would love to play with your stuffie collection! Won't you come see him and be charmed by his love for life?!
