Winston is heart worm positive.  Has started initial 30 day oral medication treatment.  Oral antibiotics and steroids are scheduled to be finished in the first week of February.  It is unknown if this little boy has ever lived indoors.  He has been living in a vet's office for the last 4 weeks.  He is very scared, but seems to warm up quickly to anyone who gives him attention.  Will you be the person to give Winston the family he has never known?
