Personality: Carl is one HANDSOME crusty man. He can be a little woof-y in the kennels when you're loving on his neighbors and not on him, but it's only because he'd really really like to lick your face. He seems to have only suffered minor injuries after being hit by a SEPTA bus and brought to ACCT, but his skin could definitely use a little TLC. The kenneled environment is not doing him any favors and he'd love to cuddle up and let you be his nurse. Come in to ACCT and check out Carl today!
