Pets of the Week: Winston and Missy Are Looking for New Families


By Sharon Aron Baron

This week, the Humane Society of Broward County has some wonderful pets to choose from. All adoptions include spaying or neutering, vaccinations, a microchip,  treatment for flea and ticks, and much more.


Winston (ID 638917) got too big, and now his family doesn’t want him anymore. Is there another family out there that likes big dogs?

He’s just a year old and 95 pounds. He’s also house-trained and will bark to let his family know he needs to go out.  

Winston knows a few basic commands and loves toys and treats.  He also loves attention, blankets, and beds, and he’s good with other animals. He’ll need an active home where he can get regular exercise. If you have a big backyard or a farm for him to run and play in, of course, with lots of toys to play with, that would be his dream come true.


If you’re looking for a feline friend who may want to share the covers with you, meet Missy (ID A653260). She’s a three-year-old, petite gal who only weighs 7 pounds. She enjoys being pet and getting chin scratches. Please be patient with me when you bring me home, as I will need some time to settle in.
