Plenty of Pets
Ben is a one and a half-year-old mixed breed who is waiting for a family to join.
He loves to play and gets along well with other dogs. He’d do best in a home where children aren’t too small, because he might knock them down with his energetic play.
The tidal bore will be coming in at 4:30 p.m. today.
