Look at that smile on Winchester!! Are you looking for a big guy? Look no further because weighing in at 74 pounds Winchester is your man! Our beautiful Anatolian Shepherd Mix guy is looking for an a pack leader to guide him and provide him with a stable, loving home. Winchester's previous family lives in a small space and wasn't able to give him the attention and exercise needed in a large breed canine. We agreed to rescue this beautiful black short coated fellow. Winchester is now neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm tested and ready for adoption. Winchester is ready to heed your commands and become well behaved, loyal and a loving member of your family. He is working on basic commands such as sit and shake. He is super sweet and just wants to please his people if he could only be taught how. Winchester enjoys the outdoors, and as soon as he finishes leash training, he will be a great walking or running companion. He is about 1 year old as of September 2016. He has been around cats and does not pay much attention to them. We believe Winchester will be an amazing lifetime friend to the appropriate adopter. Our amazing Winchester is waiting for you to give him the tools and training he craves so he can hold his snout high and be proud of himself. Please submit your application at itvrescue.org so Winchester can look forward to meeting you very soon.
It Takes A Village Canine Rescue, Inc. is a non-kill 501(c)(3) dog rescue dedicated to doing what it takes to find loving homes for stray, abandoned, and surrendered animals, and to keep these animals safe and free from further suffering. Our mission is "To work as one in helping homeless dogs irrespective of breed, location or circumstance." By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians, animal control, trainers, and boarding facilities, we are able to rescue countless animals every year and provide them with loving temporary care as we work to find them well-matched forever homes. Although we do not discriminate based on breed, size or color, we have a particular interest in bully breeds, black dogs and other hard-to-place dogs.
