Meet Winston!

Dachshund (Miniature) 
City of London, London

Winston is a striking longhaired Miniature Dachshund for hire, available as both a dog model and animal actor. He’s a chilled out pet model with a relaxed temperament that makes him great to work with. This miniature dachshund dog talent shot to fame after he organised the Hyde Park Sausage Walk.

This little chap loves all dogs, regardless of size or breed; he just wants to say hello. He can be a bit shy with new humans but usually comes out of his shell after an introduction.

Winston is highly desirable on set due to his impressive trick training. He’s a pro at all sorts of exciting tricks, which have been used in his various pet modelling gigs, though he also makes a fantastic animal actor as he knows more advanced skills like ‘stand on hind legs’.

He’s also well known for loving to play dress-up. The potential for this prop-happy sausage to promote your products or services is unending. This miniature dachshund dog talent is more than happy to dress up and pose with any actor or prop to fit the brief of the campaign.
