Champaign County Animal Welfare League (dog)

“Dog wisdom: be brave no matter your size, have a mind of your own, make your own fun, dig life, be loyal and faithful, chase after your dreams, take a nap. Wag more, bark less, never stop playing, and be quick to forgive, learn new tricks. No matter your age, love unconditionally, and make new friends.”

The Champaign County Animal Welfare League’s (CCAWL) pet of the week is Carson. He is a 1 year old Chihuahua that weighs 9 pounds. Carson is a little bundle of joy who loves treats and snuggling underneath a blanket. He would do well in a household with older children that are respectful of a dog’s personal space.
