Meet Winston

Meet Winston
This handsome boy is named Winston. He is an amazing dog. He was surrendered to us over a year ago because his owner works really long hours and Winston was crated for far too many hours a day. Somehow, Winston has been overlooked time and again. Winston is a three and a half year old Australian Kelpie/Lab mix. He’s missed out on a lot of loving and living in his life. Going from a full-time crate to a shelter, Winston’s just gone through the motions of living. He loves being with people when they give him time. He is friendly and affectionate. He really has a way of connecting. He loves playing fetch and will play all day if someone goes in the yard with him. If not, he gets dejected and only wants to go back to his kennel. He’s never learned to ‘dog’; to be carefree, to lay in the sun or to chew a bone. A person or family who’d give him 1:1 time will help him thrive. He has all the makings of fabulous companion, if only someone cared enough to give him a chance. Winston seems to not like other dogs, but he may just not know their social cues, having grown up in crate isolation.
Winston is house-trained and crate trained. He has wonderful manners, he walks well on a leash. He is athletic and smart. He’s a good size too, not too big. He loves to travel. This handsome boy so deserves a second chance. He would love for someone to love him, play ball with him, take him on walks and hikes, and play fetch. Winston needs a chance to ‘dog’, to chew a bone, lay
on the couch, be cherished and loved. Day after day, Winston waits to go home. Maybe you’ll be the one to give Winston that chance. He’s so worth it.
