Spock is in a foster home in the country in Arkansas. He just wandered up one day, looking scared but also happy to find people. Unlike so many other dumped dogs, Spock was lucky because he had found a home where he would be taken in and cared for.
The name Spock was chosen by his foster mom because his facial features reminded her of Mr. Spock of Star Trek. But, unlike Mr. Spock who always seemed to be frowning, this canine Spock always seems to have a smile on his face. He is a happy-go-lucky fellow who loves people, other dogs, cats and life in general! The one thing that Spock really wants and does not have at his foster home is to be an inside dog with a real family. He absolutely loves his foster mom and dad and he is so grateful for all they have done for him. He would love to be with them 'all the time' and that is just not possible with all of the animals they care for.
Spock used a crate while he was recovering from his neuter surgery and loved it! He would probably be housetrained in a short time if a crate was used. Spock does like to jump (usually straight up and down for his food and treats) and needs work on this and his other manners. He does walk on a leash but needs more work on this too. Spock is still has a lot of good years to enjoy (estimated date of birth is 9/15/09). He is very smart and learns quickly. He would be a wonderful candidate for obedience training. Spock weighs about 50#.
Spock has been neutered and has received all of his vaccinations including rabies. He is heartworm negative and has been started on heartworm preventative.
