A gorgeous brindle mix pup in New Jersey is looking for a forever home.
Carmine, who’s estimated to be about two years old, is currently up for adoption at Sammy’s Hope Animal Welfare and Adoption Center located in Sayreville, N.J., in Middlesex County.
While Carmine’s origins are unknown, it’s clear he lived in a home previously, as he appears to be house-trained and walks “nicely” on a leash, according to the shelter.

Staff at Sammy’s Hope told Fox News Digital they’re just happy he found his way into the safety of their shelter.
At two years old, Carmine has an “old-school” charm, the staff reported, and he prefers to take a little time to warm up to new people.
Carmine enjoys hanging out with his friends, cuddling on laps, eating well and going for long walks on the beach, the staff also said.
