UPDATE: Jackson has been adopted!

Meet the Susquehanna SPCA “Pet of the Week” – his name is “Jackson”.  Each week on Tuesday mornings at 8:30 am on Classic Hits 103.1fm, Leslie Ann hosts Allison Hungerford, licensed Vet Tech at the Susquehanna SPCA, who tells us all about a special dog or cat at the shelter looking for its forever home.

This week we are going to feature Jackson, a 10-year-old male Chihuahua. Jackson is a very adorable senior guy who is looking for a forever home to retire in. This handsome pup prefers to be the center of his human's attention, so a quiet home without other animals or children would be best for him. Jackson is the ultimate treat hound; we haven't found something he won't eat, but he is currently on a diet because he takes his job as a treat connoisseur a little too seriously. Jackson's adoption fee has been waived in an effort to find his forever home as soon as possible.

Susquehanna SPCA Miracle Puppies

The Susquehanna SPCA helped to rescue a puppy mill female dog, a 6-year-old Siberian husky named "Candy" that was retired from breeding. Through an alliance with Furever Friends Dog Rescue of WNY, a nonprofit group in Ohio that saves retired dogs from puppy mills, the dog was being cared for at the Cooperstown shelter and being prepared for adoption. Part of that process is to spay the dog before adopting it out. A big surprise happened during the surgery - the very thin dog was found to be carrying inside her a litter of four puppies. Three of them were found to be still alive and were saved. What a miracle!

LOOK: Here Are 30 Foods That Are Poisonous to Dogs

To prepare yourself for a potential incident, always keep your vet's phone number handy, along with an after-hours clinic you can call in an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a hotline you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.

Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is preventing it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.
