This morning sure began on a cute and a high note because Max came to visit.

Andy Rent talked about Max with Tammy from the Humane Society of West Michigan on his Andy in the Morning show for Wet Nose Wednesday.

Tammy, brought Max, an adorable 2-month old, Cur Mountain Dog/retriever mix puppy to visit, and Max is looking for his forever home.

101 Dog Breeds.com says the strong, muscular common American dog Mountain Cur is a skilled hunter dog that was bred especially to ward off tree squirrels and raccoons and even hunting down bears and boars, protecting their master. This loving and active breed is the first true American purebred, making a good family dog.

Tammy said that now is the time to begin flea and tick prevention for your pet. Why? Preventing fleas and ticks is cheaper than controlling them once there is a flea infestation. Flea and tick prevention products that contain insect growth regulators (IGR) stops eggs and larvae from developing into adult fleas. Flea and tick prevention keeps your pet healthy. Your pet won't pick up tapeworms or have flea bites that cause itching misery and flea allergy dermatitis. In addition, you can help prevent diseases that fleas and ticks carry such as Lyme Disease, ehrlichia, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and tick paralysis.

Tammy reminded us that Summer Camps for the kids are just around the corner. They begin in June, and the Humane Society of West Michigan has a variety of camps for all age groups available for kids aged 5 - 17.
