Spike is a 3-1/2 year old Pointer mix. He weighs 37 lbs. Poor Spike was recently surrendered by his former owner. No worries though, Spike did not do anything wrong. He is a good boy. His former owner unfortunately lost their home and did not know what else to do.
Spike is a bit shaken up and visibly heartbroken but he is safe now and we will do our best to find this guy a new forever home. Spike’s former owner reported he is house-trained, good with other animals, friendly, obedient and good with kids. Spike is a tad bit shy at first but very affectionate and playful once he feels safe. He is quite the catch and ready to be your best friend for life.
We are saddened that we have to put him into boarding and wish he could wind down in a foster home instead. It’s pretty tough to be losing your family and then having to live in a noisy and lonely kennel not knowing what is going on.
Will you be his savior and open your home to him and help him heal is broken heart?
**This dog is with Corridor Rescue in Houston, Texas but is available for transport to most major US and Canadian cities via United Airlines PetSafe for an additional $275. A customs fee may apply at Canadian airports. Ground transportation to Colorado is available for $75, and several locations in the northeastern US for $175.
We are a street dog rescue in Houston, Texas seeking to place rescued dogs in loving homes across the US and Canada. Our region has more homeless animals than homes, so we look outside of our area for adopters.
The adoption fee of $200 covers neuter, microchip and current vaccines.
