LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Barrett

He couldn't be a less grumpy old man if he tried, aside from his age. Barrett, a 12-year-old chihuahua-pomeranian cross, visited the KVRR Morning Show studios with Heather Klefstad of Homeward Animal Shelter to…

Pet Connection: Meet Butters

  Butters and Kish Hilmert with 4 Luv of Dog rescue join Adam for this week's Pet Connection. Butters is a year-old female who is gentle and gets along with people and other…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Bosco

Bosco is teaching us all a lesson in wearing your senior years with style. The 14-year-old dachsund is still strutting and sniffing out treats in his elder years, and he filled the studio with delight on the Morning Show. [gtxvideo…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Roxy

Who wouldn't want to be friends with these glorious little balls of cuddle? Chandler and Ross, two three-month-old shepherd mix puppies, snuggled up on the Morning Show set with Emily Welker and rescue worker…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Jake

Ever hear the old saying, "Everything's Jake"? It means everything is fine or a-okay. When you meet Jake, everything is, because he's one of the calmest, most laid-back fellows we've ever had in studio…

Pet Connection: Meet Piper

Piper likes to do her own talking, but on the Morning Show, she was nice enough to let Emily Welker and Diamond In the Ruff's Ryan Keel give her an introduction. The two joined…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Vernon

However soft, cuddly and irresistibly huggable you think Vernon is, multiply it by about ten and you've got a general idea of what he's like in real life. This big, white cuddle machine came…

Pet Connection: Meet Gidget

If Gidget looks familiar, it's because we've had her on the Morning Show before. The tiny senior citizen is celebrating her 106th day in hospice care, courtesy of Diamond in the Ruff pet rescue.…

If you woke up Christmas morning and the puppy you asked for wasn't  under the Christmas tree, it's still not too late. Kaylee came to join us this holiday season on the KVRR Morning…

Pet Connection: Meet Tesha

Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? Not Tesha, that's for sure. The 8-year-old German Shepherd is recovering from a recent amputation of her right forelimb. While a lot of us…
