Wisconsin Humane Society pet of the week: Linus

Linus came to the Wisconsin Humane Society as a stray with an injured leg. A thorough exam and x-rays revealed that Linus had a luxating patella, which basically means that his kneecap was constantly sliding out of place and becoming dislocated.

Consequently, Linus was in a lot of pain and had a tough time walking. After knee surgery and weeks in recovery, Linus' knee is as good as new! This healthy dog is now excited to frolic in huge leaf piles this fall ... perhaps with you?

Linus is a dynamic, little dog with distinctive black and white markings and a big-guy personality. His antics are constantly entertaining Wisconsin Humane Society staff and volunteers, who love to walk and play with Linus.

If you love the Halloween season, chances are your canine pal does, too. (Or, at least, you tell yourself that.) Grab your best furry friend, your favorite costume and get to Brady Street! The 6th Annual Brady Street Pet Parade promises to bring out the best barkers.

Dogs can strut their stuff and prance their way down Brady Street in full costume on Sunday, Oct. 7. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with the parade beginning at 1:30 p.m. The fun includes a costume contest, vendor booths and displays and a "blessing of the pets" by Father Tim at St. Rita's church. Check the link below to register now! All proceeds will benefit the animals at the Wisconsin Humane Society.

Wisconsin Humane Society pet of the week: Loki

Loki is an athletic dog with a gorgeous brindle coat and a healthy physique. He has a fantastic smile that will make you laugh everyday and a remarkably happy demeanor that is a joy to be around. Want to go for a walk? Play Frisbee? Take a boat ride? Loki will be up for it! This 2-year-old boxer/shepherd mix is truly the life of the party.

He loves to run simply for the sheer joy of running but playing a good game of fetch will satisfy him, too. He's a terrific retriever and quite agile. Loki is a smart, confident dog and ready to meet new people, to learn new tricks, and to bond with a loving guardian.

Like all of the dogs at the Wisconsin Humane Society, Loki has been microchipped, vaccinated and sterilized. Every dog also comes with one free month of health insurance. If you're interested in adopting Loki or meeting any of the other great dogs, go to at www.wihumane.org to learn about adoption process and fees.

If you love Loki's picture above, you won't want to miss the more than 500 pet photos in the 2008 WHS Calendar -- available now! All the photographs submitted by the public are included somewhere in the calendar. It's a beautiful layout and would make a great gift for any animal lover. WHS even offers a bulk rate to individuals -- or companies -- interested in stocking up for holiday gifts. Get yours now because quantities are limited.
