This cute little dog has been given his own pool by his loving owners, bringing a whole new meaning to the term ‘doggy paddle’.

Rescue dog, whose name is Winston Cornelius, was adopted by Jill Cronin and taken to her home in Florida, where she tries to give him the best possible life.

Jill, a retired racehorse groomer, said it took around three hours to make the personal paddling pool, and Winston Cornelius loves it.

The 51-year old, who has four other rescue dogs, said: “The first time he saw the pool he jumped in and laid down straight away.

“He loved it as much as we did.”

Amassing a whopping 800 likes on Facebook, Jill says other people get a kick out of seeing Winston being washed and paddling about in the pool.

“He uses it a lot…well, when it’s not raining.”
