Winston is an Afghan Hound mix looking for a new home because of a baby becoming a toddler that scares him. He is very well trained and behaved, knows his commands, walks well on a leash, loves car rides, etc. In other words a well mannered gentleman. Visit him today at the Oregon Humane Society!

Winston is a big loveable Afghan Hound mix that after 7 years in one home is now is search of his new forever home. He is a bit shy in new situations so he is looking for a quiet home in which he can adjust at his own pace. Winston will need an adult only home or one with older dog savvy children who can respect his space. He has found himself looking for a new home because of a newborn in the family and of an infant becoming a toddler which scares him and makes him very nervous. Winston likes to run and play with other dogs and he grew up with two cats which he pretty much ignores. Winston is a well behaved fellow and has not been permitted to sit or sleep on furniture. He walks well on a loose leash, will come when called, wait for his food and loves rides in the car. He knows sit, stay, down, come, leave it, and off and is always happy to show how well he can do these. And even more important when he is off leash Winston will come when he is called and he loves to go walking or hiking with his people.   His family said “We love Winston, he is a great dog and well behaved.”You can meet with Winston at the Oregon Humane Society, 1067 NE Columbia Blvd., Portland 503-285-7722.
