Imagine having a nice human family, and then one day that all changes and you're now looking to start all over again.

It happens in life all the time where change seems to be a constant, but for your pet change can be very confusing. Case in point is this weeks featured pet, Charlie.

Charlie was living the dream, then divorce hit, and his family split. He found himself looking for a new home at the Animal Welfare Society in New Milford.

Charlie is a 3 year old Boxer Mix. He's about 60 pounds, so he's a big guy. Charlie is very energetic, because of that and his size he would be best in a home without cats, dogs or small children. He walks well on a leash and knows basic commands. He also enjoys human interaction and is currently looking for his NEW FOREVER home!

Of course he's had all his vaccines, and he's already been neutered. So, if you're looking for a faithful companion, then don't say "sorry Charlie", call the Animal Welfare Society and give this friendly guy a second chance at a loving family.
