This week on "Positive Pets with MJ," Melissa takes a look at some of the "pet news" over the past week.

That includes the news of a dog being viciously attacked by a hawk while in its backyard in East Freetown, as well as the reasons behind the rules of New Bedford's new dog park, which just opened last Friday.

She also discusses how to best select a breed of dog that will fit your lifestyle, while also warning that you shouldn't take on a new pet without being ready to make adjustments and accommodations for your pet as well.

Tune in every Tuesday night for "Positive Pets with MJ," airing at 9 p.m. EST on WBSM TV and On Demand anytime on WBSM's YouTube channel.
