KICKS 105.5 brings you the Pet of the Week every Monday at 7:20 AM. The Pet of the Week is presented by the Adopt and Save Program at Agriventures Agway, and the Animal Welfare Society in New Milford.

Today, Let’s Meet Mako:

Talk about the cutest little pup ever. Mako is only between 8 to 10-weeks-old, and is some type of herding breed. Believe it or not, he was rescued, along with six of his siblings and mom, from a high-kill shelter in the south. He's ready to take advantage of his second chance, but he needs a forever home. How could you resist that little face?

Don't forget, if you adopt our featured pet, you’ll not only get a loving companion, but you’ll get a $50 Agriventures Agway gift card.
