Winston (Sharpei/Basset Hound)

Winston is 10 years old. He is a Sharpei/Basset Hound mix. I rescued him from the pound when he was 3 months old. He loves to play tug of war with our other dog and hide his bones and toys in my shoes. He will sit in front of the heater vent when he comes in from the cold, and actually heat one side and turn around to warm up the other side.


Winston is not a big fan of the snow that we have had recently. I had to take a picture of him, when I noticed him standing out on the deck. He would lift one paw and then another; rotating the three legs he was standing on. He always kept at least one foot from being cold in the snow!

Winston (Sharpei/Basset Hound)

Winston James is 7 years old. He is Sharpei and Basset hound mix. He has Sharpei coloring, but a Basset body and legs. We rescued him from the pound when he was 4 months old. He had actually been brought in by his owner that afternoon, and came with his blankie, crate, bowl, toys and full medical records.


Besides being totally adorable, he was already trained. He even had a bell to hang on the back door knob which he will 'ring' with his nose when he has to go outside!

He loves to go camping with us, especially going on walks through places he has never been before. Because of the Basset in him, his nose is always on the ground, tracking every smell. He also loves sitting on the top of our couch looking out the big window, watching for squirrels in the front yard.

He is so smart and funny. One of his best tricks is one I taught him, but he doesn't like it as much as I do! I will ask him to sit, and place a biscuit on his nose and tell him to wait. He will sit looking cross eyed at it, drooling until I tell him 'okay' then he will toss his head up and catch the biscuit in his mouth and chomp it up.
