Facts about Spike

  • Breed: Affenpinscher Mix
  • Color: Gray/Silver/Salt & Pepper - With Black
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: Spike
Spike is a 2-3 year old Affenpinscher mix (possibly mixed with Brussels Griffon) Spike arrived to our shelter very scared and nervous. However, after a few weeks of some TLC and patience from our staff and volunteers, Spike is now as loving as can be. As you can see in one of the photos, he loves his belly rubs and giving affection. He's now is able to interact with everyone with no issues (However, he does NOT like the vet and groomer!). He also gets along with dogs his size and cats. He has sudden bursts of energy where he just loves to run around and play with everyone in sight, but then he also has his moments of zen where he just likes to lay down, cuddle, and relax.

*Due to Spike's display of nervousness upon arriving to the shelter, he will need an owner who has the patience to allow Spike the time to decompress in his new home. It might take a little while for him to trust you. He would also do best with kids over 12 years old.

**He's dog AND cat friendly

About New Beginning Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

New Beginning Animal Rescue is dedicated to pet adoption. Our organization takes in unwanted, abandoned, abused, or stray pets and attempts to find suitable homes for each of them. Our rescue group is created and run by Pedro Rosario who worked for 16 years at the NYC Animal Care & Control. He began this rescue in 2010 because he felt he could make a difference saving the lives of unwanted pets by providing a safe atmosphere where no animal would be euthanized due to lack of space. He, his staff, and volunteers help to train, play with, handle medical issues, and assist with solving behavior problems and social all pets. All these animals are well cared for and loved until a permanent home can be found for them. New Beginning Animal Resuce is the ONLY no-kill rescue in the Bronx.
