This story is full of ups and downs, and through it, all the love of a dog helped everyone stay strong and persevere. The dog’s name is Winston. Tara King found Winston during a thunderstorm in 2014. At the time, Tara was living in an apartment in Louisville, Kentucky.

Tara and her fiancé, Tim, brought the underweight little dog in.

No owners were ever found, so Tara and Tim adopted him. A year later, Tara and Tim, due to unforeseen circumstances found themselves living on the streets.

They were homeless, and the only place they had to live was a storage unit.

The family would curl up together on the couch in the storage unit each night to sleep. When Tara got paid, they got a motel room.

Things started to look better. They were able to live in the apartment for a few months.

Sadly, they lost the lease on the apartment and once again were homeless.

Winston, during all of this, was a constant source of love and warmth for Tara and Tim. Finally, in February of this year, they got another apartment.
