Last month, we meet her sister Dasher, who has since been adopted. Dancer is one of three siblings yet to be adopted. Today is her 12-week birthday. Dancer loved getting picked up and petted on by station staff. Her foster mom lives next door to kids who have done a great job socializing the litter. Dancer was a curious pup who had to stop and sniff everything on the way into the studio. Once in the studio, she sat nicely next to Kathy Hodge of the Humane Society of Calloway County.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 12 Mar 2014 16:53:45 +0000 Matt Markgraf 39208 at http://wkms.org Puppies Sound Good: Meet Dancer Puppies Sound Good: Meet Flo http://wkms.org/post/puppies-sound-good-meet-flo <p>Today we met Flo, an eight-week old border collie mix.

Our favorite day of the month at WKMS. This time we met two seven-week-old puppies, Max and Sweet Pea, up for adoption. Max is black and Sweet Pea has brown and black coloring (kind of like a German Shepherd). These puppies are mixed-breed with features from a few different breeds. Also, they came from a litter of 15! Max and Sweet Pea were very&nbsp;adorable and sweet. You'll hear Max throughout the interview, watching his sister being playful. What could he be saying?</p> Wed, 13 Nov 2013 20:44:49 +0000 Matt Markgraf 36536 at http://wkms.org Puppies Sound Good: Meet Max and Sweet Pea Puppies Sound Good: Meet Calloway http://wkms.org/post/puppies-sound-good-meet-calloway <p>Today we met Calloway, this month&#39;s featured adoptable puppy at the Humane Society of Calloway County.

He's a very friendly boy, who loved meeting and being pet by everyone at WKMS, he was very mild-mannered and had his tail wagging the entire time in the studio! His foster dad says he was found as a stray on the fairway at a local golf course. He gets along with other dogs and seems to do well with cats and kids. Fairway is approximately one year old and weighs 44 pounds. <a href="http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/27165250">Read more about Fairway on his Petfinder page</a>.</p><p><a href="http://www.forthepets.org/">See adoption information at the Humane Society of Calloway County website</a>.</p><p> Wed, 11 Sep 2013 16:34:21 +0000 Matt Markgraf 34790 at http://wkms.org Puppies Sound Good: Meet Fairway Puppies Sound Good: Meet Gus and Lola http://wkms.org/post/puppies-sound-good-meet-gus-and-lola <p>Two very sweet puppies came up to the station today, Lola and Gus are shih tzu / boxer mixes, sister and brother, in need of a loving home from the Humane Society of Calloway County.

They are estimated to be about 30 to 50 pounds when fully grown and are working on their house training, crate training, and basic obedience.&nbsp;</p><p><a href="http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/26622966">More information about Gus</a></p><p><a href="http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/26622876">More information about Lola</a></p><p><a href="http://forthepets.org/">For information on adoption, visit the Humane Society of Calloway County website.</a></p><p> Wed, 10 Jul 2013 21:11:37 +0000 Matt Markgraf 32948 at http://wkms.org Puppies Sound Good: Meet Gus and Lola Puppies Sound Good: Meet Winston & Houston http://wkms.org/post/puppies-sound-good-meet-winston-houston <p>Today we met two brothers, Winston (mostly white) and Houston (mostly black). They are two adorable border collie-labrador retriever-red heeler mixes up for adoption at the Humane Society of Calloway County. These two pups were very low key and sleepy when they came up to the station, but full of love for everyone who came to greet them. Once we took them into the studio, they got some energy and played with each other during the human conversation. They will grow up to be very intelligent and active mid-sized dogs that need good homes and owners who will keep them busy.&nbsp;</p><p><a href="http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/26359900">More on Houston from Petfinder</a>.</p><p><a href="http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/26359891">More on Winston from Petfinder</a>.</p><p><a href="http://www.forthepets.org/">Adoption information at the Humane Society of Calloway County Website</a>.</p><p> Wed, 12 Jun 2013 17:23:41 +0000 Matt Markgraf 31973 at http://wkms.org Puppies Sound Good: Meet Winston & Houston Puppies Sound Good: Meet Hunter http://wkms.org/post/puppies-sound-good-meet-hunter <p>Hunter came up to make his radio debut today! He's a playful and energetic Labrador puppy. He loved meeting everyone at the station and was very curious to find snug hiding spots underneath chairs and tables even though he's bigger than he thinks. When we brought him into the studio, he climbed into his foster mom's lap and went right to sleep! We think he'd be a great fit for a family with kids and plenty of energy. <a href="http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/25547623">Here's more information about Hunter on petfinder.com</a>.&nbsp;</p><p> Wed, 08 May 2013 16:49:38 +0000 Matt Markgraf 31566 at http://wkms.org Puppies Sound Good: Meet Hunter
