Hometown Hero: Winston the Great Pyrenees

Winston the Great Pyrenees is 4-and-a-half years old. He loves to play in his backyard, but when it's time to go to work, he's all business.

The 106-pound certified Heart of Texas Dog is great company at nursing homes and schools.

Clifford Spohr is his owner, and he loves taking Winston to work his magic.

Winston is a gentle giant, and lets everyone hug, kiss and pet him, give compliments and just love him.

The residents at CC Young who live in The Cove Assisted Memory Care Unit get to see Winston about once a month. They love his visits, which bring back memories of their own pets and life in their homes.

Cllifford Spohr was a FOX 4 Hometown Hero in 1999 because at that time, he had a dog named LuLu, and he'd take her to visit patients in the hospital.

Clifford is the principle bass emeritus with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.

He knows beautiful music, and that's what Winston is to the people he visits.
