Morning – Pet Connection

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Virginia

She's an international star. So why can't this sweet girl find someone to love?

With a face like that, it’s no wonder she wound up an international sensation. Virginia is a beautiful, odd-eyed white and tan pit bull who found superstardom after being featured as one of the “one-der” dogs of the Fargo Brewing Company’s beer can campaign. The collaboration between the local brewer and local rescue 4 Luv of Dog is being shared…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Jubilee

Talk about a reason to party -- a new puppy!

Bring on the puppy party! Jubilee is a three-and-a-half-month-old puppy who came in to Diamond in the Ruff pet rescue with her sister. It’s somewhat unclear what breed or breeds she is, possibly part blue heeler, but either way, she’s a sweetheart. Very good with other dogs and with cats, as well as with kids and adults, she’s just looking…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Topaz (Again)

A shining treasure who's yet to be discovered.

Topaz is a treasure that’s so far remained unclaimed. The three-year-old cat cat came in to Adopt A Pet, from an area reservation, with a litter of several tiny kittens. She and one of her sons were featured on Pet Connection several months ago. All but one of the babies has been adopted out, but Topaz remains in foster care….


Tutti Has A Whole Lot Of Energy

  We’ve got a live one this week! Tutti joins us from C.A.A.R.E. She’s a 16-year-old Cockatoo. She’s actually a mix between a Moluccan and Umbrella Cockatoo. That means she has gorgeous orange and yellow streaks in her feathers near her head. Tutti has energy! She love to sing and dance, and is pretty verbal. She loves to cuddle. You…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Merlin

Merlin can put a little bit of magic in your life.

Merlin’s got this amazing magic trick up his furry sleeve: he’ll make you want to snuggle him even when he’s trying to convince you to play with him instead. The lively two-year-old came in to Homeward Animal Shelter from a local pound, and unfortunately, he’s got a lot of company there. The shelter has a surplus of cats that need…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Jensen

A lowrider of a dog who will lift your spirits high.

If you like the way pitties look, you will love Jensen, from the tip of his broad black nose to the end of his tail a long, long way behind. He’s got the classic wide pit bull face, short legs and a broad chest and shoulders that look like he could bench 440. The long, low-slung dog is almost broader…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Stella


Just like the iconic scene with Marlon Brando in “Streetcar Named Desire,” Stella could make you holler her name to the heavens — and that’s because people tend to shriek with delight every time they see her. She is a sweet and incredibly calm little mixed-breed puppy who came in to the Diamond in the Ruff animal rescue from a…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Harrington

Want a kiss from a handsome young fellow? Harrington's your guy.

He may be only 12 weeks old, but handsome little Harrington already has his charm game down pat. The black domestic shorthair kitten came in to Homeward Animal Shelter from the local pound, and he’s hardly stopped purring since then. Harrington gets along with everybody, old friend or stranger. Homeward Animal Shelter’s Heather Klefstad accompanied him on his visit to…


Eva Is A Sweet Bird With A Quiet Chirp Looking For A Family To Love

  Eva is sweet. That’s the first thing you notice about her. She was a little nervous coming into Pet Connection this week, but she didn’t let that stop her. She’s a six-year-old White-capped Pionus. She has a head covered in white feathers, along with bronze feathers speckled on her wings and blue and red feathers on the bottom side…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Buzz

He's light years ahead of the competition for cutest doggo.

We’re all abuzz about our newest Pet Connection guest this morning. Buzz is an electrifying little dog with tons of energy and charm, but who knows how to settle in and focus when there’s a need. The two-year-old Miniature Pinscher/Dachsund cross loves to play and likes to be on the go, enjoying car rides and games with both people and…
