    Are you ready to meet the kindest gentleman on four legs? Winston is your guy!

    Winston is the sweetest, most gentle boy there ever was! He was found roaming around on the highway in the North West Territories this Spring, and has been in search of the perfect furever home ever since. As he is used to being out on his own, he doesn’t automatically know that all people are “safe” right away, so he can be a pretty shy guy for the first little bit. However, once he gets comfy, boy-oh-boy is he ever a love-bug! Winston could be a professional snuggler, as he loves to cuddle, be patted, go for walks nice and calmly right by your side, and just hang out in the company of his humans and doggy buddies. Want to lay on the couch? Winston is your guy. Want to take him hiking? Also your guy! He will do whatever it is you want to do and won’t complain one bit.

    Winston is house-trained, gentle as can be, shows no signs of aggression, is an amazing loose-leash walker, knows what not to chew on, and did I mention loves to give love and snuggles?! Winston knows a pretty darn good “sit”, “touch”, and “come”, and loves to show them off to anyone who wants to see!

    The perfect home for Winston would have a family that has a little bit of extra time and patience for Winston to warm up and bond- because once he does, he is a loving, happy-go-lucky fella. They wouldn’t be bothered by him being a little shy and “ducking” a bit for the first week or so! They’d have a dog or two around (preferably medium/large sized, but this is flexible!) so that the dog can help Winston be nice and calm (and quiet) when left alone while the humans are away. Lastly, they wouldn’t be too scared off by Winston’s “roaming” history- and know that with a little extra time and love, he will show you he is absolutely the best doggy and family member you have ever had!

    Winston has been looking for a furever home since April- can you believe it? Are you the one he’s been waiting for?!
