It's a puppy invasion at WKMS today! We met three puppies available for adoption at the Humane Society of Calloway County: two tiny terrier mix puppies named Jack and Jill and a young adult beagle named Honey. On Sounds Good, Todd Hatton speaks with Kathy Hodge about the puppies and some events coming up for the holidays.
Jack and Jill are three to four month old terrier-mix puppies, with soft, scruffy coats. Jill is black and white and her brother Jack is black and brown with white feet and a white chest. Hodge says they weighed four pounds when they came in and have gained a little weight since then, but won't be big dogs. They're up to date on vaccinations and currently live in a foster home with three kids, big dogs and a smaller dog and get along with all of them.
Both puppies were very friendly meeting everyone at WKMS. Jill was quite adventurous and liked following folks around whereas Jack was more comfortable sitting in his foster mom's lap.
Also, we met a beagle named Honey. She is about two or three years old. Hodge says she was found as a stray by animal control. She's a very friendly and sweet tri-colored, average-sized beagle. She had maybe been an outdoor dog because she loves watching television - seems fascinated by it. She is heartworm negative, has vaccinations and will soon be spayed. In her foster home, she is being crated, likes big dogs and loves the cats. Honey was very curious to meet the little puppies today.
She liked giving kisses to the staff members and seemed very well mannered. She has a small wound on her paw, which Kathy says looks like she was bitten by something outside, however it didn't seem to bother her.
