WALLINGFORD — Bronx is a three-year-old pitbull mix up for adoption at the Wallingford Animal Shelter, 5 Pent Road.  

“He’s perfect. He’s so well-behaved and a super laid back dog,” animal control officer Katie Ehlers said. 

Bronx came to the shelter about a month ago after his owners divorced, Ehlers said. He is very well-behaved and can go to a home with other dogs and children. 

“He’s like perfect in every way,” Ehlers said. “He’s definitely a volunteer favorite. He's fun to walk and really sweet. He loves to go for walks, but he really just wants to hang out with you.”

Bronx doesn’t have any health issues and will be neutered before he leaves the shelter. 

In other news, Ehlers said Roxy, a two-year-old American bulldog mix the Record-Journal highlighted last week, was adopted this week and went to his new home Friday. 

Two other dogs the Record-Journal recently profiled – Rhett and Bailey, two beagles at the Meriden Humane Society – were also recently adopted, shelter manager Carlos Melendez said. 

“So many people came forward that saw Rhett and Bailey in the paper. The Meriden Humane Society was able to find two great homes for these two pups,” he said.
