Hello! Are you looking for a nap buddy who loves to snuggle? If yes, then I’m your man! I LOVE naps and if I’m snuggled up close to my human, I’m the happiest!

Winston is cautious and shy at first but after some patience and reassurance his personality turns to goofy and affectionate. He loves to just be around his people and snuggle. Winston is about 2 years old.  He is still learning how to play, but already loves to play fetch, chew on toys, and snuggle with his humans. Naps are a favorite pass time. He is potty and crate trained. He loves car rides. He is an escape artist from his crate or penned room. He is very food motivated and aims to please. He is uncomfortable with men but is overall a good family dog. He is not food or toy possessive. We are still working on building his self-confidence and leash / leave it training.  Walks are good until an animal (dog, squirrel, bunny etc..) comes by, then he gets over excited / stimulated (non-aggressive) and barks and pulls on the leash but just wants to go be friends and play.

Winstoni weighs 63 lbs and is from a local shelter. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
