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….

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…

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…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Happy

C'mon, c'mon, get happy.

We’re happy to tell you that you have a chance to bring home what may be the nicest cat we’ve ever met here at the Morning Show. Not just Happy, but handsome, the 11-year-old black domestic longhair was adopted from Homeward Animal Shelter back in 2009. However, his owner’s circumstances changed recently, so Happy’s come back to Homeward to try…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Bones

Give a dog a bone, and a brand-new home he's more than earned.

If you’re looking for a friend to wake up with every morning who reminds you how lucky we all are to be here together, you can’t do better than to bring Bones into your life. He’s considered the “go-to” dog for all public events for 4 Luv of Dog rescue, said founder Kish Mackin, because his happy-go-lucky, calm, sociable personality…

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Miss Sophia

Believe me, she'll keep you busy all on her own.

You might think it’s less fun to have one dog than two. Miss Sophia is here to prove you wrong. The year-and-a-half-old husky-shepherd mix came in to Homeward Animal Shelter by way of the pound, and in to the KVRR Morning Show studios via Homeward’s Heather Klefstad. And she was more fun than a barrel of monkeys the whole morning….

LIVE: Pet Connection: Meet Vanya

Vanya could be just the cat for ya.

She’s a cat who’s full of surprises — a litter of them, as a matter of fact. The tiny, two-year-old tortoiseshell arrived at Diamond in the Ruff rescue and brought quite a bit of company with her, delivering a litter of kittens just two weeks after workers there brought her in. She suffered through some health issues shortly after becoming…
