Facts about Spike

  • Breed: Pointer Mix
  • Color: White - With Black
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
**We are proud to announce that this dog is currently part of Project HEEL (Helping Empower Everyone’s Lives), a training program, which pairs our dogs with young boys from a Harris County correctional facility for their mutual benefit. Please see the link below to learn more about this program. This dog will be available for adoption again after 12/16/2016.

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.

About Corridor Rescue Inc. - Pittsburgh Transports

About Our Rescue Group...

Corridor Rescue Inc. is an all breed 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable animal rescue organization on a mission. A mission of mercy, rescue and awareness. A mission to save lives and correct an injustice to animals who have been thrown away and left, often times injured and starving, to fend for themselves in the Hwy 59 and Little York area of Houston - apparently the dividing line for the county and city Animal Control. Its about a mile strip of road dubbed the "Corridor of Cruelty". Veer off to the left or right along any point and see the same everywhere - abandoned and starving dogs, in pain and suffering. Here, trash and animals are discarded without thought on a regular basis. We're not talking about a handful of animals, but hundreds of physically and emotionally damaged animals in the fight of their lives to simply survive another day.

Started by one person, Corridor Rescue has grown its team of volunteers, from all walks of life, united in an effort to help this community of orphaned animals in desperate need of help. We work to rescue hard to capture dogs and cats; to rescue and rehabilitate diseased and injured dogs; to facilitate the rescue of animals mainly from the Corridor of Cruelty but also from other areas of Houston; to educate about spay/neuter and animal cruelty laws.

Success happens everyday yet we know that our fight is far from over

Our Adoption Process...

We require all potential adopters to complete our pre-adoption application. Please contact with inquiries, or visit our website to fill out our online adoption application -

After review of your application, a rescue volunteer will contact you. We will check veterinary references on all current pets or any that you have had in the past 3 years. We conduct a home visit by appointment to meet family members, other pets, and to evaluate home safety conditions. If we feel the potential adoption is a good match for the family and the pet, then we proceed with placing the animal on a "trial adoption". We want to be sure that your new pet is right for you!
