Winston is a very sweet and happy boy! A lover of tummy rubs, this fella originally came to PAWS when his elderly owners couldn't bring him into senior housing with them.

He loves car rides, walks, and is comfortable with other dogs. He does have a hypothyroid condition which is easily managed with daily medication that goes in his food.

A beautiful Cocker Spaniel, Winston is seven years old. He's a fairly mellow chap, but he does bark when strangers approach, so he'd be best in a single-family home rather than an apartment or condo. The best placement for Winston would be in a low-key household, with adults or older children who understand that he has to get to know people a bit, then he's all about those tummy rubs!

He's had overnight visits with volunteers, and Winston has proved to be the perfect gentleman with everyone he met! He is also fully housebroken!

Winston is up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped.

Lucy & National Pit Bull Awareness Month

October is National Pit Bull Awareness Month, and on October 27th, celebrations will occur all over the nation, focusing on the positive attributes this group of dogs has received. has suggested 10 Ways to Celebrate pit bull awareness month, and I couldn't agree more - talk about the positive experiences; teach your children to respect all animals; and consider volunteering at a local animal shelter or fostering a dog in need, to name just a few.

In the meantime, meet Lucy, an excellent Pit Bull Ambassador. She came to PAWS with her sister, Ethel (whose adoption is pending) and was later joined by their mother, Lanie. All three are gentle, loving, playful pit bulls who are guaranteed to steal your heart!

About 9-months-old, Lucy loves other dogs and getting attention from people. With one blue eye and one brown eye, it's hard not to turn your attention to this gorgeous girl!

I've taken Lucy to off-site events, and she's been the perfect pit bull ambassador. Everyone she meets is showered with kisses, young and old alike. She rides well in the car, too!

Lucy is up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. We'd love to place her in a home with another dog, because playing is tops on her list!

Apply to adopt Lucy!

More PAWS in the Park Photos!

The Hour posted a nice photo diary of our PAWS in the Park event here.

Take note - the artist that's painting a dog is using our lovely adoptable Lucy, pictured at left, as her model!

This little lady is a silly as her ears. (Sorry about the picture quality - there are better ones on the PAWS Dog Gallery.)

Ginger is a wonderful, high-energy Miniature Schnauzer who would be perfect for an active person or family. At about 4-years-old, she's both a cuddler and a dog who loves to play, play, play! She loves the car, going for walks, playing with her toys - and being near you for pets and belly rubs.

Ginger is good with other dogs, but can be dominant at times so she should be an only dog. Since she does bark loudly, especially when she sees other dogs or strangers, she'd be best in a single-family home rather than a condo or apartment.

This beauty is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, and microchipped. All she needs is you!

Cato is a Bernese Mountain Dog mix and a love of a boy!

Cato is about 10-months-old and is full of puppy playfulness and love. He already knows sit, down, paw,  and other basic commands - this is one smart fella! He loves children and has lived with a 2- and 5-year-old. He also loves running in the yard and playing fetch - perfect for an active family! Cato gets along well with other dogs and has many doggy playpals at PAWS.

Cato is about 60 lbs. now, and will grow a bit more. He's neutered, fully vaccinated, and microchipped.
