Charlie, a male Beagle
Charlie has three weeks to find a new home. His owner is going overseas for military training and is heartbroken to leave Charlie behind.
"We are hoping and praying that a new home is found before that time comes so that Charlie doesn't have to come into the shelter," AFL staff report.
This boy is a great companion to have, gets along with other dogs, is well adjusted to living in a home setting and would most likely transition easily to a new family.
To meet Charlie, call the shelter at 203-758-2933.
Dinero, an 8-year-old Appaloosa Gelding
Dinero is an 8-year-old, 16'3 hand registered appaloosa gelding. He has a condition called ring-bone (a type of osteoarthritis) so his abilities under saddle will be limited.
He has been started back under saddle and has been ridden on the trails with other horses at the walk, trot and canter. HORSE of Connecticut staff are unsure of how rideable Dinero will end up being in the future, but he is up for adoption for a person who can appreciate his physical limitations while still giving him a great home.
Dinero has a huge personality and will come running across the field when he hears his name called.
To learn more about Dinero, contact HORSE of Connecticut at 860-868-1960 or go to www.horseofct.org.
Hannah, a female Labrador Retriever/Terrier Mix
Hannah is a friendly dog who is about one year old. She is a mix of Lab and Terrier and is a love bug.
Hunter, a male Terrier Mix
Hunter's favorite season is winter. He loves to roll in the snow and AFL staff said he makes a "doggone good angel." He would love to live in a home with a good walking or hiking buddy.
Hunter is learning basic commands rather quickly. AFL staff said Hunter has the softest coat ever and is sensitive when it comes to human relationships. On the AFL website, Hunter himself weighed in on why he feels he's a great dog: "Did you know that petting me can lower your blood pressure and induce a sense of calm? Please come try it out. You may just find I am the pet for you."
