Find a Fur Baby: Meet Ernie and Artichoke

Submitted by Judith Levin

(February 10, 2023) — Ernie is a handsome boy weighing around 70 pounds and he is full of life.

He is one year old, is house-trained, and will let you know he has to go out. He absolutely loves toys,  throwing them up in the air to catch.  He is smart enough to know what the household items are and what are his toys.

Chew Chew treats are a must.  He LOVES them. Ernie has quite a bit of energy and needs to run, walk, hike, and just go wild.  A fenced-in yard is a must for this guy.  When he is all tired out he loves to pass out on his Sleep Number Bed and watch a good movie with some popcorn and movie theater butter slathered all over it.

Ernie is an extremely smart pup and learns very quickly.  He is very eager to please you, with a treat as something to look forward to. Training will be provided by Protectors of Animals as part of his adoption.  You see poor Ernie was abused with a shock collar before coming to the rescue, therefore patience is a must with his new family.  With time and love you will see him transition into a beautiful flower and, once he trusts you, he will be your best friend forever and ever.  He is nervous around kids so an adult family would be ideal.  Protectors of Animals is asking for only Connecticut residents to pursue this adoption. For more information about this sweet boy, email Aileen at aileen.l@poainc.org


This handsome boy, Artichoke, has been at the Wallingford Shelter for a very long time, and no one can figure out why this is so.

Look at him. He is absolutely beautiful and is such a good dog. He is shy but warms up quickly as he gets to know you. Artichoke is extremely smart and gets along with other dogs he meets. He would do really well in a quiet environment with a fenced-in yard.  He really wants a family that he can call his own to get love and kisses.

If you would like to meet Artichoke, contact the Wallingford Shelter by calling them at:  203-294-2180 or email them at: info@wallingfordanimalcontrol.com Let us get this poor boy home!
