PORTLAND (AP) – A Maine-based company that was founded by actress Glenn Close and her husband has completed a $4 million round of financing to expand its online shopping and networking site for dog lovers.

Fetchdog.com announced Monday that Borealis Capital Partners and Harbor Light Capital Partners, both based in New Hampshire, are leading the round of financing.

David Shaw, the company’s founder and Close’s husband, said the funding will be used to develop new content and entertainment and philanthropic initiatives.

Close, a five-time Academy Award nominee, is the public face of the business that sells high-end dog bowls, leashes, toys and other products by catalog and on the Internet. The Web site is also being used to build an online community of dog lovers.
