JENNIFER: I LOVE THE NAME OF THE DOG YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT TOY.DA CHECKMATE. >> YES. CHECKMATE IS A WONDERFUL GUY. HES I ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF. UNFORTUNATELY, HE CAME TO US BECAUSE THE OTHER ANIMALS IN THE HOMEID D NOT CARE FOR HIM. HE REALLY IS AUN F Y.GU HE’S BEEN IN OUR FOSTER CARE PROGRAM AND WE’VE LEARNED A LOT ABOUT HIM. HE’SOT N A COUCH POTATO BY ANY MEANS. HE REALLY IS LOOKING FOR AN ACTIVE FAMILY THAT WANTS TO GET OUT AND HIKE AND HAVE A GOOD TIME. >> I LOVE HIM. WE SAW HIM WIGGLING HIS WAY THROUGH THE LEAVES. WHAT KINOFD DOG IS HE? IS HE A GERMAN SHEPHERD MIX? >> WE THINK SO. OFTENTIMES, WE HAVE ANIMALS THAT COME IN AND IT’S HARD TO TELL WHAT THE BREED IS. I THINK HE MIGHT HAVE GERMAN SHEPHERD IN HIM. AND, ALSO, SOME OTHER ACTIVE BREEDS. >> I WANT TO KNOW WHERE THE FLOPPY ESAR COME FROM. THE OTHER ANIMALS DIDN’T CARE FOR HIM. SO HE’S BEEN BULLIED AND NEEDS A GOOD HOME WHERE HE’S ACCEPTED. >> HE WOULD PROBABLY DO BEST IN A HOME WITHOUT OTHER ANIMALS AND WITH MORE AIVCTE CHILDREN. JENNIFER: SO YOU’RE GOING TO NEED TO HAVE A HOME TO TAKE A BIGGER DOG LEIK THAT. >> ABSOLUTELY. JENNIFER: WE’LL TALK MORE ABOUT CHECKMATE IN A MINUTE. FIRST, WE DID TALK EARLIER THIS WEEK, LAST WEEK TOO, ABOUT THE NEED FOR CAT FDOO BECAUSE THERE’S BEEN SUCH A SHORTAGE OF THOSE WET CANS. AND YOU HAD A GREAT RESPONSE. >> YES, WE DID. I WANT TO TAKE A SECOND TO JUST THANK THE WBAL AUDIENCE. BECAUSE OF YOU GUYS, WE HAVE PLENTY OF WET CAT FOOD NOW. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR DOING THAT. IT’S A REALLY IMPORTANT TIME. JENNIFER: OUR VIEWERS ARE THE BEST. >> THE OTHER THING I WANTED TO MENTION, THIS IS A GREAT TIME IN MARYLAND. IT’S THE LEGISLATI VESESSION, DAN THERE ARE SO MANY BILLS OUT THERE RIGHT NOW THAT PEOPLE WHO ADVOCATE FOR ANIMALS NEED TO BE PAYING ATTENTION TO. JENNIFER: LIKE WHAT? >> A REALLY IMPORTANT BILL THAT’S OUT THERE IS THE EXTREME WEATHER BILL. WE GET CALLS EVERY DAY FROM PEOPLE WHO ARE CONCERNED ABOUT ANIMALS IN THEIR COMMUNY,IT AND WHAT THEY CAN DO TO HELP THEM. MAYBE THEY’VE BEEN OUTSIDE FOR OTO LONG. THIS IS A BILL THAT WOULD HELP TO PROVIDE STANDARDS ACROSS THE STATE OF MARYLAND AS FAR AS WHAT IS ACCEPTABLE FOR ANIMALS IN EX TREME WEATHER. THERE’S ALSO A COST OF CARE BILL WHICH WOULD REALLY LOOK AT THE COST OF ANIMALS THAT HAVE BEEN TAKEN IN TO ANIMAL CONOLTR FACILITIES DURING AN ANIMAL ABUSE CASE. AND THERE’S SOME GREAT BILLS ON EVICTION WHEN IT COMES TO ANIMALS AND MAKING SURE THAT IF SOMEONES I EVICTED, THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO FIND THEIR ANIMAL AND ALSO A TAX CREDIT FOR LANDLORDS TO ALWLO ANIMALS INTO THEIR PROPERTIES. GO TOMARYLANDVOTESFORANIMALS. THEY CAN LEARN MORE ABOUT THE BILLS AND CALL TIRHE REPRESENTITAVES. HELP US MAKE MARYLAND A BETTER STATE FOR PETS AND PEOPLE. JENNIFER:EA RLLY GOOD INFORMATION. I’M NOT SURE IF WE’RE ABLE TO SHOW THE VIDEO OF CHECK MATE AGAIN. IF SOMEONE IS INTERESTED IN MEETING HIM TO SEE IF HE’D BE A GREAT FIT FOR THEIR HOME, WHAT SHOULD THEY DO? >> CHECK OUT OUR WEBSITE, MDSPCA.ORG, OR CALL 410-235-8826. JENNIFER: HE’S A CHARACTER.
