Spike's Story...
Spike is a 2-3 year old Affenpinscher mix (possibly mixed with Brussels Griffon) Spike arrived to our shelter very scared, nervous, and a biter. 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 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.

*Spike does NOT like the vet and groomer. He is VERY aggressive towards them so you must take this into consideration before adopting him.

**While he is sweet and affection with people, there are still little things that can trigger him such as adjusting his harness and trying to carry him.

***He really needs an EXPERIENCED OWNER with time and patience. It might take some time for him to trust you. He would also do best with no small kids.

****He's dog AND cat friendly. VERY playful with them.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Spike, a Bronx Affenpinscher dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Affenpinscher for sale in Bronx, or seeking a Affenpinscher dog from a breeder in Bronx.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bronx already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Bronx breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Affenpinscher breeders who help with Affenpinscher rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bronx paves the way for another one to be saved.
