HI! My name is Bullwinkle! Although I love my nicknames Mr. Bull, Mr. Winkies and Winkle as well! My favorite thing to do every morning is greet you with a big ol smooch. I love to run and would be a great match for a runner or someone with a big back yard. Do you have a tennis ball? No? okay just checking. Are you sure? Because I love tennis balls! I love when you throw them for me but I am just happy playing by myself too! If you've got squirrels, I will handle them for you. And by handle them, I mean I will never catch one but I will chase them till the cows come home! I am a high energy dog with a lot of love to give. Swimming is another one of my favorite pass times! If there's water, and you give me the nod, IM GOING IN GUYS! I love a good scratching behind the ears. I know how to sit and give you a hug. I give paws all day long! I understand "inside days" too, and I will curl up beside you on the couch or the floor while you answer your emails or watch TV. I just want to please you, so if it means being good and laying around with you, I'm in! I get along with other dogs although slow introductions are a must! My previous owner had a cat. His name was Rocky. He took over my bed and pretty much ran the house. I didn't mind, I think he was my friend but he never let me give him a kiss. But if he came near my food bowl I had to give him a bark! With new people, lets take it slow with lots of high value yummy treats. If you got a duck heart or a pig ear, you better get ready, I'll be your friend for life. I know all my commands and I listen very well. I am a well behaved dog. I honestly just want to hang out with you! and I hope you don't mind if I follow you around, you're pretty much my favorite person in the world ya know! My mom rescued me last year. I had a rough start in life and I remember loud noises or people would terrify me! But a lot has changed since then! I needed some loving and a routine to get me on my way! I am crate trained and house trained. I like to hang out in my crate sometimes and nap! Neutered and up to date on all shots. My ideal family would be a mom or a dad with no kids, maybe you have a pup to play with, maybe you don't. Either way my future parent, will have some time to develop trust and bond with me. I'm not perfect, but I work really hard! When there are loud noises or big groups of people I get quite nervous, I'd rather have a small group of people or doggos that I know around me. If you think you'd like to meet me or you know a sweet soul who's not perfect either, but might be perfect for me; or maybe just send me some support, let these nice people know. I know my perfect home is coming. I can't wait to get there! Thanks again, this is Mr. Winkies, signing off. Now where was that tennis ball... Winkies Out!
