Boss Hogg, Bailey, Bella, Wally, Sassy, Buttercup, Snow White, Tulip, and Zinnia have a lot in common. Not only did these Lab/coon hound mixes trek from Branford, East Haven, West Haven, Orange, and Guilford to meet at the dog park on Short Beach Road, but they are all also from the same abandoned Houston, Texas, litter brought to Connecticut by Nutmeg Rescue. The Grossman family of Branford organized the play date after digging into Boss Hogg's background and learning that many of his littermates were local.
