Spruce is Hickory's sister, and has the same fabulous disposition. She is more of a watch and learn type dog, but loves people and other dogs. She is sweet and loves treats and walks really well on a leash! She is calm and loving and would like some attention without her brother Hickory trying to hone in on it all! Spruce is a dream dog - quiet, calm, well-behaved, and so very sweet!! She will not be much bigger based on her paws, and right now she is about 34 pounds and is about six months old. She is up for anything you have going on, and will do wonderfully with a little training and confidence! Spruce is ready to find her forever home!
About LightShine Canine: A Rez Dog Rescue - Colorado Chapter
We are a dog rescue focused on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and the nearby border towns. At LightShine Canine we bring the heart of the Lakota and the needs of the dogs together. Our goal is to rescue stray, abandoned, injured or abused dogs on the Pine Ridge Reservation with the help of Lakota youth and adults working on sobriety...and to find these dogs forever homes. Our adoption fees help us continue to do this and to provide community outreach to Tribal members in the form of dog food, vaccines and spay/neuter. Our dog rescue work program is geared to ensure that the dogs we rescue and the Lakota who assist us with this dream are changed forever.

ADOPTION EVENT! OCTOBER 22, 2016 10-2 Join us on Saturday, October 22 for "Strutt your Mutt" in Erie! LightShine Canine will have dogs and puppies available for adoption, or just pop by and see us and grab a T-shirt or a business card and say hello! We will be at the Vista Ridge Community Center (right at the Colorado National Golf Club) along with other vets, doggie daycare businesses, and other animal contacts! Come on down and help us continue to rescue Paws Off the Ground!!!
Our Adoption Process...
Once you have selected the puppy or dog you are most interested in, an initial questionnaire is done. Then, a phone interview may be conducted. A reference from a Vet or another organization you have adopted from in the past will be needed and a home check may be required.
Our adoption fee is $300 and a $50 refundable spay/neuter deposit is required. An adoption contract will need to be signed with a "no later than" agreed-upon date for spay and neuter. All of our dogs come with 30 days of pet insurance as well.
