Puppies Sound Good: Meet Hansel!

Matt Markgraf, WKMS

Today we meet Hansel, a happy, energetic shih tzu/pug mix available for adoption at the Humane Society of Calloway County. He seemed to be smiling the entire time he was at WKMS and enjoyed all of the attention. Kathy Hodge of the Humane Society says he was found running around with a pack of dogs when he was brought in, with matted fur and underweight. He's recovered well, only barks when significant and sits for treats. Hansel seems like a good fit for a young family with lots of energy. In the interview, Hodge also talks about how to volunteer from fostering to driving dogs to rescues and a remarkable story about a poor beagle.

Sebastian
Matt Markgraf, WKMS

Puppies sound good today, we met Sebastian, a little hound mix, mostly black with white tips on his tail, feet and nose and we welcome back another hound mix, Sadie, who was featured here in March. She's now 5 months old and was briefly adopted, though her home didn't work out (even though she was a very good girl). Sadie is very social and friendly and beginning puppy obedience class. Sebastian was sweet and cuddly, loved to sleep in your arms. The puppies met for the first time in the studio and played during the entire conversation with Kathy Hodge and Tracy Ross about a summer camp for kids and keeping your pets safe during 4th of July festivities.

Today, we meet Roxy, a (big) puppy up for adoption at the Humane Society of Calloway County. She's about 1 to 1/2 years old and weighs approximately 60 pounds. She was very pregnant when rescued from the shelter and within 24 hours, gave birth to eight puppies. Roxy was very sweet and excited to meet everyone at the station. She rolled on her back for belly rubs and had her tongue sticking out almost the entire time. She is house trained and crate trained, enjoys baths, likes cats and small dogs, has foster training with young kids and large dogs, and understands several commands. Humane Society director Kathy Hodge says she'd be a good fit for an energetic family. Hear more in Todd Hatton's Sounds Good conversation with Hodge.

[Slideshow] Puppies Sound Good! Meet Chester

Our monthly feature, "Puppies Sound Good" brings Kathy Hodge from the Humane Society of Calloway County and a puppy (or puppies) available for adoption to our studio in search for a home. Today, we met Chester, a black lab. Hodge says he's about 12 weeks old, but was brought in as a stray so they don't know much about his ancestry. Chester was shy at first (seeing more humans in one room than he had his entire life) but after a few treats, he warmed right up and sat in Todd Hatton's lap during the interview. He seemed very relaxed and laid back. Kathy and Todd Hatton also talk about what's going on at the Humane Society and some advice for those thinking about pets as a Christmas gift.
