Winston ready for his forever home


Winston the boxer who underwent urgent lifesaving surgery recently and whom Bloemfontein Courant reported about on Thursday 1 April 2021, is healthy and ready for his new forever home.

After a successful operation, during which one of his legs was amputated, Winston has adjusted well to using only three legs. The Bloemfontein Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) describes him as “brave”.

Winston was taken in by the SPCA after suffering cruel attacks by local children in Ladybrand. He was found with severe open wounds on his ears as well as bite marks on his face and a broken leg.

According to the organisation Winston is now playing around in his kennel and wagging his tail. “He has a sweet personality and will give all his love to his new owners. He had a difficult past but will easily adapt to his new home,” said the organisation.

Winston, who just loves treats, is up for adoption at the Bloemfontein SPCA. For more information or possible adoption, people are welcome to visit the Bloemfontein SPCA.
