While Winston is quite a big lad due to his breeds, he walks nicely on the lead. The rescue added: “He enjoys a day trip and would prefer to be walked in quieter areas as he gets anxious if other dogs approach him. He would prefer a home without too many visitors given he likes to take his time to get to know people and he would love a secure garden to enjoy off-lead time in.”

Dogs Trust Manchester said Winston enjoys being the centre of attention and loves to have a fuss made of him. He has been anxious around men previously, but has ‘made progress’ since being at the centre, but he will need an adult-only home.
