Bullwinkle’s Story

History:  Bullwinkle and another dog were left in a car during a cold snap.  They were left in the car for over 24 hours. Someone broke the window and called the police.  When the owner was found they agreed to relinquish the dogs.

About:  Bullwinkle is a happy-go-lucky kind of guy.  He loves everyone he has ever met, and while he doesn’t live with any children in his foster home we think he would make a great family pet.  Bullwinkle is house trained and crate trained.  He’s middle aged and has a nice medium energy level to match.  While Bullwinkle could keep up with a more active family, he doesn’t need extreme daily exercise to keep him happy.  Bullwinkle is his foster mom’s shadow and LOVES to snuggle.  When Bullwinkle decides to chew he is a power chewer, but he also has an extremely soft mouth and will gently release a ball or toy for you. He is being fostered with a senior dog and he respects that she has minimal interest in playing.  If a more playful dog is visiting he loves to play with them and particularly enjoys a good game of chase.  Bullwinkle is quiet overall and would be a good option for someone in an apartment or condo.  He will bark out the window if the resident dog “starts it,” and will also bark if you show him a treat but don’t get it into his mouth fast enough 🙂  Bullwinkle is an awesome well behaved, easy going guy.  His foster mom used the following words to describe him: Playful, Cuddly, Derpy, Attentive, Happy-Go-Lucky.
