This week's SPCA of Hancock County "Pet of the Week" is a beautiful boy who will no doubt find a home in no time, because from the sound of it, he's a dream come least that's how our friend Cole over at the shelter describes him.

"Winston is a 3-year-old black lab with a bit of hound in him, judging by the way his nose is always to the ground. Muscular, athletic, dark, and handsome, Winston is the sort of pup one dreams about. He has a sleek and shiny black coat and big brown puppy eyes, and you can tell this boy loves to exercise because he is pure muscle."

A pretty sociable puppy as well, Cole says Winstons would do well with both 2 and four-legged companions, as he is quite docile.

"Winston is also a gentle boy who loves humans and other dogs. While he loves swimming, he’s not fond of camping or being stuck in an RV for long periods of time, and he would rather spend his time romping around the yard or sniffing out exciting new scents. He isn’t great on a leash but has amazing rebound and always comes back when called, and he is already crate trained."

Winston would do best with companions that will allow him some space and opportunities to release some of the puppy energy.

"He would be best suited for a family with a lot of love and energy to share who would love to take him out swimming or exploring. We don’t expect a happy, friendly dog like Winston to last long at the SPCA so get your application in quickly!"
