HI! Nice to meet you!
Im Winchester,”Winnie”,”Chester” and even “Chet”. I’m so amazing I have four names! I’m a very affectionate dog, and love all of my family. I love the cats, kittens, dogs, kids, everyone!
I’m a two year old Besenji – terrier mix and true to the Besenji breed, I don’t bark. I’m affectionate, but I won’t shadow you. I like to know what you’re doing, but not to issue frequent demands for attention. I am a highly intelligent boy. I want to please you, but I do like to see all that’s going on around me.
I love to cuddle and lay next to you, but every so often I just have to zoom around! I will fit into your lifestyle easily! I also like to show you how much I love you by putting my paws around your neck and giving you a hug!
I want nothing more than to have a family of my own to love and be around! Please, let’s get together and have some fun!

Adoption Policy:

  • Complete an adoption application and submit it. You will receive an onscreen confirmation we received it.
  • Once your application is initially reviewed, we then contact your veterinarian and references. After that, a H.E.L.P. volunteer will contact you. Please be patient, this does take some time especially over a weekend. Please allow 24-72 hours for us to make contact with you.
  • All members of the family must be present in order to adopt. We want to make sure it's a good fit for everyone!
  • Because this is a life time commitment, once you meet the foster dog, there is a 24 hour waiting period for you to make sure that the fit is right for everyone. So many people see a cute face and want to take them home right away without really thinking about it. The waiting period also allows you to get supplies ready for your new one.
  • We do not ship dogs within or out of the state.


  • Puppies 12 months and younger are $300.
  • Adult Dogs over 12 months and younger than 7 years old are $250.
  • Senior Dogs over 7 years are $200.
