    “I’m Binx, And I am TOO good of a dog. No Seriously! I was adopted and returned within 48 hours, with notes saying I’m potty trained, good with kids, fun to play with, and good with dogs in the home,” the Monday post said. “They decided they wanted more of a challenge, and I think the only challenging part of me is how devastatingly handsome I am - I can’t get anything done here at the shelter because everyone is petting me, telling me what a good boy I am, and taking me for walks. So if you’re ready for a handsome, well-mannered pup, here I am!”

    Binx’s adoption page said he would be best with an active family with older children. Any other dogs would need to meet him at the shelter.

    More information on Binx is at the AAWL website.
