About Winston

Personality: Winston is the most affectionate Husky ever! He loves to get as much people attention as possible. In Winston's mind he is just one big fluffy lap dog. Winston walks well on a leash and enjoys going for a stroll. For a middle age boy, Winston is still pretty active and he will need regular walks mixed with some hikes or light jogging. History: Winston came to us from another shelter.Dog skills: Winston participates in playgroups at HSSV with other dogs. He does best with female dogs but can be very selective as to which male dogs he wants be have near him. Regular playdates with a playful female dog would be very beneficial to keep up the positive dog encounters.Cat skills: We have no history on how Winston is around cats however as a Husky he might have some breed tendencies and might chase a cat if presented with opportunity.Leash Skills: Once comfortable in his environment Winston has shown signs of being reactive towards other dogs when on leash and through a barrier. He is easy to re-direct by calling him away from fence or walking away until other dog is out of sight.Medical: Winston has been diagnosed with periodontal disease (also known as gum disease or dental disease). This disease is extremely common in dogs and cats, especially as they age. Periodontal disease occurs when bacterial plaque causes inflammation of the gums and eventual destruction of the bone in which the teeth are anchored.Winston had a dental cleaning recently at HSSV. Dental care is an on-going process that will need to be addressed for the life of the dog. The adopting family is encouraged to discuss continuing dental care for Winston with their family veterinarian or a veterinary dentist."Ready to meet Winston?

Personality: Badger is a lovely boy who has done well with other dogs and loves meeting new people. Badger was doing really well with house training in his foster home. She would use an exercise pen for when he was not being monitored which helped. He is fine spending time alone and amusing himself, but he does well with good exercise beforehand. He loves adults and children. His foster said that he knows "go to your room" as a crate command and that he waits nicely for his treat once going in. We have been working on "off" as he likes to put his paws up on people but he is excited and he has not fully mastered it yet.History: Badger came to us from another shelter then spent some time in a foster home with two small dogs.Dog/Cat skills: Badger can be uncomfortable meeting new dogs initially. He does best with calm, polite dogs that can help him adjust at his own pace. He has been a great buddy for my two small dogs and was reactive only when there was a fence between him and a neighbor dog. He has not been around cats.Medical: This dog has some changes in the enamel layer of his teeth. Enamel is the hard white coating of teeth that makes them strong and healthy. He may have poor enamel quality due to a congenital condition (he was born with this tendency) or due to exposure to a medication or a virus when he was very young. The poor enamel will make him more prone to dental disease. He had 2 incisors (front teeth) removed due to crown fractures.Brushing the teeth daily with a soft toothbrush and toothpaste designed for pets will significantly improve this dog's dental health and possibly his general health in the future. However, he is likely to require veterinary dental care throughout his lifetime. The adopting family is encouraged to discuss continuing dental care for this patient with their family veterinarian or a veterinary dentist.Ready to meet Badger?

Personality: Frank Sinatra is a charming, friendly, social kitty who loves getting showered with attention. He is made of pure love so don't let his grumpy face fool you! He loves to snuggle and sit on laps. He also enjoys wand toys and laying in sunspots in his room. History: Frank came to us as a stray.Cat/Dog Skills: Frank has not been exposed to dogs while in our care and had no reactions at the sight of other cats. He has not been cohoused, however. Medical: Frank may have a flea allergy, which means that the pet is allergic to flea bites. Pets with this condition can develop very itchy skin and hair loss even when they only have a few fleas. While at HSSV, this pet has been treated with monthly flea prevention, such as Advantage or Frontline. The new adopters are advised to keep up with monthly flea prevention in order to control this possible flea allergy. If monthly flea control alone is not controlling the skin condition, the adopting family is advised to consult their family veterinarian for further treatment options.Frank had a dental cleaning recently at HSSV. At that time the patient was anesthetized and all the teeth were cleaned with an ultrasonic scaler to remove tartar and plaque. The teeth were then polished to prevent premature tartar build-up. The teeth were evaluated for fractures and periodontal disease. Teeth that were determined to be unhealthy were removed. Dental care is an on-going process that will need to be addressed for the life of this patient. The adopting family is encouraged to discuss continuing dental care for this patient with their family veterinarian or a veterinary dentist.Ready to meet me ?
