Winnie's Story

You are here

Last October, our huge family Labrador passed away. I knew that I needed a companion because I am home alone for the majority of the day for the whole week. I also knew I needed someone small and cuddly. I went into the HSU with admittedly low expectations. Then, I met little Rigby on a warm March day. He was so nervous and shaky, but he still cuddled right up to me. It really was love at first sight. I re-named him Winnie, after WInnie The Pooh. He got back up to a healthy weight quickly, and really started to live up to his namesake-he is a big fan of sleeping, eating, and being lazy. He is the best dog I could have ever asked for. He is so loving and gentle to everything with a heartbeat. He loves to invade your personal space and snuggle under the covers. He is always happy to play with his toys, run around in the backyard, and, of course, sleep. I am so glad that I took the leap and adopted my best friend!
