Thursday, March 23, is National Puppy Day. In a Nationaltoday.com survey, results show 34 percent of American dog owners claim their puppy has taught them patience; 13 percent of the respondents said they show their puppy love by letting the sleep in bed with them.

The American Kennel Club has just announced that once again the Labrador retriever is once again the most popular dog breed in America. The rest of the top five is as follows: German shepherds, golden retrievers, bulldogs and then beagles.

This week's KRFO Radio Pup of the Week is anything but a pup. Rosa is a senior citizen more than 10 years old. She's been in foster homes for more than a year now. She's looking for a permanent loving home for her retirement years. She'd be best off as an only pet and in a home without children. Rosa's adoption fee is $200. She's part chihuahua.

Check out the other cats and dogs looking for good homes by going to the Steele County Humane Society website.
