A kind couple found Angus wandering the streets in San Antonio and alerted San Antonio Area Scottie & Westie Rescue. We think 4th of July fireworks scared this sweet fellow into running away from his home. When with SAASWR Rescue, he was called Winston. Efforts to find his owners were unsuccessful. Sadly, Winston was not microchipped, or his owners might have been located.
Winston took up residence in foster care at Doris’ where he enjoyed spending time with her Scottie Lucy. After a few weeks, he went to live with Charles in Leander. Charles wrote after Winston had settled in: “We are doing very well. Winston, whose name is now Angus, is a totally different dog. He is very friendly and loving. He is still working on some of his fears, but is doing much better. He is still very shy when he meets new people, but warms up to them much faster than when I first got him. When I have to leave him for a short period, as when I go to the grocery store, he greets me as if I had been gone for a week or so.” We understand Angus had a little turkey on Thanksgiving.
Winston went to his new home with talents including being housebroken and able to use a doggy door, plus walking nicely on a leash thanks to a brush-up course from Doris. Of course, Winston was fully vetted by SAASWR, too. Thanks once again for your superb foster care, Doris! (Winston was posted on Texas Scottie Rescue Fund’s website and Facebook in July 2012.)
