Augustus is a 1-year-old dog with a personality as big as his body. This overgrown puppy is goofy and fun, but is still learning his manners and basic commands. He is good with most other dogs, older children, but would prefer a home with no cats. Meet Augustus anytime 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday at the Animal Welfare League. For more information about Augustus, or any of AWL’s adoptables, call 410-827-7178 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
