LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – We’re featuring the four-legged friends of KARK’s on-air personalities this month.
In today’s spotlight is Luna, the pampered pup of KARK 4 Today co-host Susanne Brunner.
She’s a Border Collie mix who’s six months old.
“My husband and I rescued Luna in March. We have a 4-year-old Golden Retriever named Sadie and we wanted to get another dog so Sadie would have a friend to play with as well. Someone we know told us they found Luna in a box with 2 other siblings left for dead. They didn’t think she would make it a week. They brought the pups home and started fostering them. We decided to bring Luna home to see if she would be a good fit and she was! It wasn’t something that happened overnight. It took Sadie a couple of weeks to warm up, and now they’re inseparable,” says Susanne.
One of her puppy quirks is that she likes to play fetch with herself in the living room!
“When we first brought Luna in, she was so calm and timid. She would just sit there and look at you. I think a lot of that had to do with how she was treated early on. I could just tell she was so grateful to have a place to call home, food to eat and a bed she can call her own. She has really shown personality and is such a loveable pup,” Susanne explains. “She adores Sadie and has to lay right next to her. Luna also follows us around everywhere.”
Luna is a smart pup and has already learned how to sit, lay, shake, and stay.
“For those who’ve never rescued a dog or cat, I highly recommend it. It really is a wonderful feeling knowing you’re giving a pet a second chance at life. There are so many of them out there who need homes,” Susanne adds.
LUNA’s LIKES: Sticks, tennis balls, tug of war with Sadie, belly rubs, walks and food.
