Plenty of Pets

Finnegan is a two-year-old boy who loves to play, go for walks and snuggle with his people.

He’s a big dog who is a puppy at heart. He finds new things a little intimidating and needs someone willing to help him improve his confidence and who can get him out for lots of exercise.

If you’d like to meet Finnegan, stop by the Colchester SPCA shelter at 408 Industrial Avenue or call 902-893-7968.
