Gus the Chihuahua visited our studios today.

Gus visited with Andy Rent as he talked about him on his Andy in the Morning show for Wet Nose Wednesday.

Tammy, from the Humane Society of West Michigan, brought Gus into the studios.

Gus is a 2-year old Chihuahua who had been abandoned. How sad that was, since he is such a sweet, relaxed, loving dog. He was just neutered, has had all his vaccinations and is micro-chipped. Gus is ready for a good, loving home.

According to the American Kennel Club, Chihuahuas are alert dogs with terrier-like qualities. They are good with families if the children are gentle and patient. Because of their small size, they require little exercise and are good city dogs, but can be sensitive to cold temperatures. He can also thrive with activities in rural environments because of his hardiness. The Chihuahua is highly intelligent. Obedience training should be considered to ensure he becomes a well-behaved companion.

Tammy also said this weekend, December  5th and 6th, is Home for the Holidays Weekend at the Humane Society. All dogs, 5-months to 6-years old, are only $100, and all cats are "fee-waived." It would be a wonderful opportunity to add a furry critter to the family.

You can get all the information on the Humane Society website or call (616) 453-8900.

Wet Nose Wednesday on 100.5 The River is sponsored by Chow Hound Pet Supplies.
