Puppies Sound Good: Meet Winston & Houston

Today we met two brothers, Winston (mostly white) and Houston (mostly black). They are two adorable border collie-labrador retriever-red heeler mixes up for adoption at the Humane Society of Calloway County. These two pups were very low key and sleepy when they came up to the station, but full of love for everyone who came to greet them. Once we took them into the studio, they got some energy and played with each other during the human conversation. They will grow up to be very intelligent and active mid-sized dogs that need good homes and owners who will keep them busy. 

More on Houston from Petfinder.
