Echo is everything wonderful in life all rolled into one tremendous dog: fun, playful, loving, and very smart with just a touch of klutziness. He is a 10-month-old handsome brindle altered male hound mix and you can find him at the CT Humane Society (455 Post Road E., (203) 227-4137). He was pretty much left to fend for himself until his owners decided that didn’t want him around anymore. This sweet dog deserves so much more.

Hi, I’m Snow! (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Connecticut Humane Society

Our delightful little Snow is sticking her tongue out on all those people who say senior dogs don’t make wonderful pets. Snow is a spayed female senior poodle mix that can be found at the CT Humane Society (455 Post Road E., (203) 227-4137). This spunky little girl has a lot of living to do and will make a lovely and friendly companion for some lucky person.  She would do best in an adult home. It’s quite sad and depressing for Snow and those that love her at the CT Humane Society each day she has to wait for her loving new home. So, please stop by soon to meet our special Snow.
