A Local guy and his labrador guide dog are looking for a shopping buddy who speaks Spanish and who likes to shop. This fellow hails from sunny Puerto Rico and likes to shop for his favorite ethnic foods. He likes to go to Price Rite in New Britain, Walmart or local stores for Spanish foods with his labrador guide dog who accompanies him everywhere.
