Winchester…A Most Handsome, Mellow Gentleman! Say hello to Winchester. He’s so regal, one should call him Sir Winchester. WInchester wasn’t always so regal though. He was found as a stray in Northwest Florida and was picked up by animal control. His luck turned around when he made his way to Houndhaven and was doted on by all of the volunteers. He has developed quite a fan club of followers, both at the shelter and at our adoption events.
Winchester is a handsome black lab mix. He is approximately seven years young and weighs 57 pounds. Winchester walks nicely on his leash and enjoys pit stops along the way to lay down and get long belly rubs. He loves snuggles from our volunteers and enjoys any kind of affection we offer him. Winchester enjoys playing with toys while laying on his big, fluffy bed.
Winchester is looking for a home where he can be your snuggle buddy and help you binge watch an entire season of your favorite show on Netflix in a single day with him curled up next to you. If you’ve been looking for a new family member that will be most loyal to you, and only asks for your love and belly rubs, Winchester is the boy for you. Please visit to review our adoption policies and procedures, and complete an application.
