CULLMAN, Ala. – The Cullman County Animal Shelter’s Donna Ruttkay shares The Cullman Tribune Pet of the Week:

Winston has all the good qualities of a shepherd mix. He’s a year to year-and-a-half old with a lively-but-not-hyper medium-energy level, and a mind that is inquisitive and alert. He enjoys time outside in the shelter yard though he’ll stay close to his people when walking, and he apparently has a taste for yogurt!

Ruttkay said, “His jovial demeanor is contagious, makes me laugh and giggle out loud; he’s good for our insides.” 

Winston has the makings of a good therapy, companion or hiking dog.

Winston’s adoption fee is $100 which includes DHLPP vaccine, Bordetella vaccines, rabies vaccine, wormer, general exam at the vet, neutering, microchip, free 30-day health insurance policy issued by 24PetWatch (with valid email only) and a free bag of food from Cullman Pet Depot (you must pay sales tax).

Animal shelter staff and volunteers work with their dogs to make sure they are accustomed to being around people, walking on a leash and practicing good behavior. Several of the shelter’s canine friends have even been “hired” to work as therapy and special needs service dogs.  

Please consider adopting, to give a rescued pet a chance at a happy and healthy life.
