My name is Winston. I was born at the Denver Animal Shelter on Thanksgiving Day 2010. I was scheduled to be euthanized the next day with my brothers and sister because someone thought I 'might be part pit bull', which is illegal in Denver because of Breed Specific Legislation (BSL)! My whole family was saved by a rescue in Colorado Springs where there are no such stupid laws. My mother, siblings and I were all adopted by wonderful forever families. I am loved, but that all could have been taken away when I was 1 day old!!
Me and my siblings. I'm in the upper right with my paw on my sister, Gracie.

This is my mom, Daisy...not a pit bull at all!

Me riding an ATV for Kyler's 13th birthday. He's a fan who races ATVs!
I wanted you to see a little bit of my life. A life that might never have happened because of a prejudice against a breed of dog that results in their death! Mommy says there are similar events like this in human history too. I don't think either is fair. Someone shouldn't be killed just because of how they were born without ever having a chance. I'm actually part Boxer, which is what gave me a fat nose as a baby. I hope they aren't outlawed one day.
I say NO to BSL!!!
