Beginning this week, Orange Live will share Fred Dray’s contribution of adoptable animals at the Woodbridge Shelter. Orange is now served by the Milford Animal Control, but many residents still see the Woodbridge Shelter as their own.

Giovanni

We have a marvelous canine for adoption this week. Giovanni is his name, Gio for short. The lad is a young adult, American Bulldog mix, about 50 pounds in snow white with piercing green eyes. His physique and color are attractive as is his attentive, playful, puppy behavior.

He will need obedience training, human attention and the stability of a good home be it a small family or individual. With a little human polish, he will shine.

Giovanni and other dogs, cats and kittens are available for adoption at Woodbridge Municipal Animal Control. The shelter is located at 135 Bradley Road and can be reached by phone at 203 389-5991.

A pack of coyote will hurt or kill a pet in no time if so inclined.

Coyote Attacks Dog In Orange

 Around Town, Home, Latest News, Today's Events  Comments Off on Coyote Attacks Dog In Orange
Jan 262019
 

A woman on Peck Lane let her dog outside to do his “business” in the pre-dawn hours, Saturday morning.

A short time later she heard a disturbance in the yard, and saw a coyote attacking her pet.

The coyote took off, and the woman brought her wounded dog to the vet for treatment. Luckily he is up-to-date on his rabies vaccination and only needed a booster shot.

He’s now relaxing at home.

The area of the attack was on “the other side” of the Boston Post Road — near Raymour and Flanagan and Trader Joes Shopping plazas.

As always, keep your eyes on your pets when they go outside. This dog fought back, but smaller dogs and cats can be carried away by a hungry coyote.
