Happy Waif Wednesday! Meet our lovable Waifs of the Week: Pablo, Winston, and Leroy. One of our original Waifs of the Week, Sampson, went home, so Winston has stepped up to the plate. These sweet boys are so excited to find their forever homes!

Hi! My name is Pablo and I’m a handsome fella waiting for my forever family. I’m a little shy when I first meet someone but I warm up quickly. We’ll be best friends in no time! I don’t know any commands yet, but I like treats and I’m sure we can work together to learn new things.

My friends at Wayside say that I do well on a leash. Let’s gear up and go explore the world together! I’m up for anything as long as I’m with you. After we exercise, I’d love to curl up right by your side. I’ll even let you pick what show we watch! I like to play with other dogs, so if you’ve got a canine friend at home, we might be a good fit. You’re welcome to bring them with you to meet me and we can get to know each other before heading home.

I know it won’t take long to find my special people. Could it be you?

Love, Pablo



Hey there! Thanks for reading about me! My name is Winston, and I’m just about the sweetest, mellowest guy you could ever meet. I’m a big, white cat with just a little gray on the top of my head. And I have beautiful, exquisitely lined pear green eyes. I am also front-declawed.

I guess you could describe me as a big, fluffy cloud. Or a sweet, pillowy marshmallow. I’m a friendly fellow who loves attention and affection, but I like to let you make the first move. Once you start petting me, I won’t want you to stop. At 7 years of age, I’m right in the prime of my life. I know what’s most important: giving and receiving love. Do you think we could do that for each other?

Love, Winston



Hi there, my name is Leroy! I am a 1-year-old lab/retriever mix. I came in very shy and unsure of what was happening.  Then I started Confidence College, and that’s where I met some really nice friends. It takes me some time to warm up to new people, so just let me come to you when I’m comfortable. They say I am really getting better at warming up to people!

I have also done some clicker training, learned how to target a hand, and know the “look” command, where I look into your eyes and focus on you. I am really good at these and would love to learn many more things with you! I enjoy being in doggy playgroups, and I’ve gotten really good at making friends.

Please come meet me in person soon!

You can watch a cool video about me here!

Love, Leroy
