The WCC Goes to the Dogs!

William Berloni and Chico during their visit to the Wolf Conservation Center

November 15, 2009 – Move over Atka, Chico stole this show! William Berloni captivated a full house with his heartfelt stories about rescued dogs becoming superstars. Chico sat on Berloni’s lap during the talk and drifted in and out of sleep until roused by the chorus of 31 wolves! The five year old Chihuahua was able to relax and settle back into a slumber when the howling came to an end. Chico is one of Berloni’s 23 dogs that currently live on his 90 acre property in central CT. Chico is enjoying an “early retirement” these days after a successful run on Broadway in Legally Blonde. For more than 30 years, Berloni and his company have been training animals, primarily rescued from shelters, and preparing them for a life in the limelight.
