He's currently hanging with the other homeless dogs at the East Haven Animal Shelter. His holiday wish is simple: a warm place to rest his weary head after a long day of playing. (Check out the accompanying video featuring Hercules demonstrating the fine canine art of ripping apart a stuffed animal.)
Here is his story.
Age: 2-3 years
Type: American bulldog mix
Color: tan and brown
How arrived at the shelter: abandoned at shelter
Personality: Animal Control Officer Kristina Ruszczyk describes Hercules: "He has very unique facial markings. He sits very well. He likes daily walks but would probably love to curl up on the couch and watch TV. I think he'd be good with older children because of his size and strength."
Also waiting to be adopted:
An 8-month-old kitten
6 adult cats
7 adult dogs
