Win has a long story as to how he wound up with me.
One day, Win got out of the house of his original owner, and was hit by a car. He was taken to the shelter where they concluded that he had a broken leg, and that he might lose his leg is the surgery didn't go well.
Lucky for him the surgery went just fine, and he began to recover. The humane society contacted his owner to let her know her dog (who she called "Bossy") was at the shelter and they told her what had happened. She said that she couldn't afford to pay for the surgery, but the humane society offered her the opportunity to volunteer and pay off the surgery that way - she said yes but never name.
In the midst of paper work confusion the name Bossy was made Boosie, and when a nice couple by the name of Bob and Pam Hoffman took Boosie in as a foster dog, they changed his name to Bootsy to make him sound more adoptable.
After 5 months in their care, I contacted them about adopting "Bootsy." I met with Bob and Boots at an adoption event and filled out my application. They liked me enough that they talked to my landlord for approval, and I got a yes!
I made the decision to change Bootsy name to Win mainly because it didn't sound like a boys name - also if you met him, he doesn't fit his name too well. I decided on the name Win after Win Butler, the lead singer of the band Arcade Fire.
I the coming weeks I am going to visit Win at his foster home to see how he is trained and by May 9th he should be all mine :)
