Rigby is all dressed up and ready to celebrate our 139th Birthday Party!

Rigby may be little at just 9 months old and 17lbs, but he has a BIG, fun personality! If you're into wiener-shaped dogs with stubby legs, floppy ears, and one of the biggest, goofiest smiles we've ever seen, then Rigby is your guy! He still has lots of puppy energy and his favorite toys of ALL time are tennis balls. Though Rigby is bouncy, fun and loves to play, he also enjoys chowing down on treats and getting lots of pets and cuddles. We know he won't be available for long, so come meet this handsome lil' man today!

If you'd like to adopt Rigby, please visit our website at hswestmi.org/adoptabledogs.html

LOOK: Here Are 30 Foods That Are Poisonous to Dogs

To prepare yourself for a potential incident, always keep your vet's phone number handy, along with an after-hours clinic you can call in an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a hotline you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.

Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is preventing it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.
