3. Winston (submitted by Eva Weissman)
When we first met Winston at HSHV, he was exceptionally sweet, but was sad and confused when we first took him home. Eventually he came out of his shell, and in 2015, we became a therapy dog team. Having a
"job" has really allowed Winston to shine. He loves visiting with patients, seniors and students. It is so sweet to see this big mutt who once
needed help himself give back to the community. Occasionally we have taken
other HSHV shelter dogs on breaks, and Winston has been the perfect calming dog that helps them; I think he does therapy not just for humans but also for other dogs!
We have Walked & Wagged every year since he was adopted. He
gets so excited running with a large pack (not to the treats), and it is always his fastest 5k of the year!
