A furry, four-legged friend of the Connecticut Humane Society is looking for a new home this Fourth of July weekend.
Burt is an 1-year-old Terrier/Mix who enjoys the company of children older than eight, cats and dogs and can live in any type of housing, included apartments. He is "playful and loves to cuddle," according to the Connecticut Humane Society website.
"He is a little bundle of fun and joy," Public Relations Director Alicia Wright said Friday morning.
The young pup would require mandatory training and an owner with general experience with dogs.
"He is still learning so he will need to continue his training upon adoption," according to the Connecticut Humane Society website.
If you are interested in Burt or any of the other animals at the Connecticut Humane Society, log onto its website to see a gallery of all the adoptable pets and to learn about the adoption rules and procedures.
The Connecticut Humane Society is located at 701 Russell Rd. in Newington and its phone number is (800) 452-0114. The hours of operation are Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
If you have plenty of pets at home but still want to help out these great animals, the organization is always accepting donations of food, toys and supplies.
