New foster Winchester

Hey everyone! My DH and I recently decided to start fostering dogs for the greater houston german shepherd dog rescue. We got our first foster boy last friday. His name is Winchester and he is a total cuddle bug! He is 3 years old but seems to have NO prior training. He doesn't know anything, not sit or down or come, he is a counter surfer to the extreme and a Houdini who keeps escaping from his crate. But he is incredibly sweet and loving and loves getting rubbed all over. He is slowly starting to open up and started playing with some toys yesterday! He still won't play with Jade at all (much to her dismay). Overall we are loving being foster parents and can't wait to find Winchesters forever home! Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure.

Winchester is a handsome boy. He is lucky to have you for his foster parents.

Oh my gosh, he's so handsome ! I have a feeling it won't be hard to find him a forever home, he's just too cute.
Also, serious kudos for becoming a foster family. I think I would be too tempted to keep every dog that came into my home, especially if they were all GSDs
