Lexi & Rosie: The Paws Report, September 20

paws-report-pups-092016

We have two dogs and two rescues to feature on The Paws Report today at 3:30:

Saving Sunny, Inc. is a great organization doing important work in rescuing, rehabilitating and adopting out Bully Breeds and other dogs who have often suffered abuse and neglect. They are on the front lines to change the misconceptions and myths about Pit Bulls and combat breed discrimination as well. Pitty Fair 2016 takes place this Saturday at St. Joseph’s Children’s Home from 1-7pm. More information on their event page here.

Kelsey Westbrook is a founding member of Saving Sunny and will be joining us today to talk about the Pitty Fair and has an adorable dog up for adoption named Rosie. Here’s more about her:

Sweet Rosie has not met anyone she has not wanted to shower with kisses. Lots of kisses! She loves to play with her foster brothers and go for walks, however she’s really quite medium energy and is mostly a a fan of snuggling in your lap. Her goal is to be as close to humans as possible! She is smaller than pictures make her out to be, full grown at only about 35 pounds! She’s around two years old and we suspect her to be a Staffordshire Terrier mix. She’d be a great companion for chillin’ on a restaurant patio or at your feet at a coffee shop. If you would like to meet this spunky, angelic little girl please email michelle@savingsunnyinc.org.

We also have the good folks from The Kentucky Humane Society who will be bringing Lexi with them today. Here’s more about her:

Lexi is a sweet, fun-loving Pit Bull Terrier mix who came to the Kentucky Humane Society in search of a forever home. This beautiful girl is very special. She has a seizure disorder that will require that she take medication the rest of her life. As long as she stays on this medicine, though, her seizures have been under control. Lexi loves people and both dogs and cats. She likes to play in bursts, but her favorite thing to do is snuggle up with her human in bed or on the couch. To say that Lexi is a cuddle bug is an understatement. Lexi does well with a harness and knows some basic commands. She’s not really into walks and would much prefer to be mellow. Because of her special needs, she needs a special person who can understand and love her as she is. Could that be you? Lexi is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. Since Lexi thrives being in a home, she is going to stay with her foster family until her forever person comes along. To meet Lexi or learn more about her, email foster@kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 ext 2260. To view all adoptable animals at KHS, visit www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

Instead, she is inquisitive, playful and lots of fun! She loves to play – especially pouncing games – and gets along well with other kitties too.

Largo: The Paws Report, August 30

Largo

Today on The Paws Report at 3:30:

Meet Largo, a one-year-old tortoiseshell kitty who was rescued from cruelty and neglect by Animal Rescue Corps during their “Operation Dog Days of Summer” in early August. She was one of 170 animals found living in squalor without adequate food, water or shelter on a puppy mill in northern Mississippi just south of Memphis. When she was found, Largo was riddled with intestinal parasites and was very underweight. Since being rescued, she has received medical treatment and is gaining weight at the Kentucky Humane Society. She is also enjoying receiving attention from KHS staff and volunteers. But what she really wants is a loving home of her own – something she has never had before. Can you help Largo forget about her sad past and teach her that people can be kind and good? Largo is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Visit Largo at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville KY. View all our adoptable animals at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 to learn more.

Clifford: The Paws Report, Sept. 6

Clifford

Today at 3:30 on The Paws Report:

Looking for a sweet, wiggly, playful younger dog who is no longer a puppy? Three-and-a-half-year-old Clifford may be just what you’re looking for! At 45 pounds, Clifford may not be a Big Red Dog, but he is rated for all ages, so we think he may be a great family dog. Clifford originally came to the Kentucky Humane Society from an overcrowded rural shelter. He was adopted, but his family didn’t have enough time to train him, so they returned him so we could find a permanent home for him. Clifford is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations. Meet Clifford at the Kentucky Humane Society. Visit www.kyhumane.org/dogs to see which adoption center Clifford is at. View all adoptable pets at www.kyhumane.org or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

KHS has a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Prep class that starts tomorrow, Sept. 7.
https://www.kyhumane.org/component/rseventspro/event/989-cgc-prep-instructor-katy-length-4-weeks-cost-85?Itemid=%20upcomingEvents
Our 4-week CGC Prep class will help you put the final polish on your pup’s manners before you take the Canine Good Citizen test with an AKC approved CGC evaluator. Dogs that successfully complete the test will earn an AKC title and a certificate from the American Kennel Club acknowledging their achievement. This is a great step towards any advanced training goals, such as therapy work or agility, or just to validate that your dog is the smartest pooch on the block. Dogs attending must complete Manners for Life or equivalent training class before enrolling.

They are in need of loving foster families to help care for these animals as they have suffered abuse and neglect. Tonight is also Dog Day at the Park!
