Some dogs simply pull on your heart strings a little more deeply… this is the way it is with Kilo.
Kilo is an older gent who came into Animal Services in the hopes that we would be able to help him find a family and home. He was not truly a stray… but he didn’t have a permanent address either. He was a dog in limbo… shuffled from one person to the next, many trying but none really succeeding in providing him a safe place.
The first time I saw Kilo he was quietly sitting at the front of his kennel. I looked at him and he looked back at me with those intense orange eyes set in that broad big head.
But only for a moment and it wasn’t long before the staff at W.A.S. discovered the sweetness in this big lumbering boy.
This past weekend Kilo walked in the Winnipeg Santa Claus Parade with the Winnipeg Animal Services float. He did amazingly well… walking quietly in front, frequently turning to wonder at the noise and crowds lining the streets, but never making a fuss. At the end we could tell he was tired and grateful for a rest but he had walked the entire parade route like the trooper he is.
And I am more in love than ever.
The bottom line is… this big boy needs a home. If you think you may be interested, please contact Winnipeg Animal Services. I have a feeling you will be glad you did.
Post Update: Happy News – Kilo has been ADOPTED !
