Pet Of The Week

A dog named Max visited WITN News at Sunrise as the Pet of the Week Wednesday.

Max is a five year old Retriever/Labrador mix. He is described by volunteers as "outrageously handsome, good-natured, eager to please, sweet and what a looker!" His owners were moving and didn't take Max.

Max is house-trained and well-behaved boy. He's got a richly marked thick coat black and tan markings on the luxurious coat of a lab. His big brown eyes are gentle and kind.

All dogs at the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, dewormed, and on heartworm and flea prevention. All dogs 6 months or older are tested for heartworms. Their adoption comes with a small bag of Hill's Science Diet food and a free one month trial of pet health insurance.

If you are interested in adopting Max or any of the animals at the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina, please contact them at (252) 413-7247 or visit them online at

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A stray dog who survived an attempt to put him to sleep at an Oklahoma animal shelter has become a canine celebrity, with thousands of people seeking to adopt him, an appearance on a national television show and growing concerns about his safety as his fan base increases. The dog was among several dogs abandoned by the Sulphur Animal Shelter less than a month ago. A local veterinarian tried to euthanize the puppy due to overcrowding, but he somehow survived. Now, about 3,000 people have expressed interest in adopting him and $1,200 has been donated for his care. He was flown to New York City to appear on "Good Morning America."

    My wife and I have 5 little dogs. We call them our kids and children. I lost my beloved dog Penelope a brown Chihuahua to old age a few weeks ago there is not a day I do not cry and grieve for her even as I write this. She was my best friend and partner for 13 years we did everything together. She was cremented and lays to rest with a framed picture of her on my fire place mantle. All they want is a good home and love and they give love in return. Please someone take this dog home it needs you! God Bless Them All.
