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
