Shadow's Story...

Shadow has come a very long way to become a wonderful dog for the right family! He's great with other dogs and loves people and to be cuddled and petted. He still has a moment here and there but all in all has grown in leaps and bounds from the feral pup he once was. In the right home Shadow will only continue to become a great pup! And he is the best guard dog in the world!

Shadow is a beautiful Japanese Spitz with some Pomeranian (which is also a breed of Spitz). He is a true black beauty with a tine patch of white on his muzzle.

When Shadow arrived he was completely feral and was listed for euthanasia in a southern gassing shelter. We were asked to give him a chance and see if we could work with him and find him a home. Shadow is an incredibly smart dog who has learned what love is and has become a sweet and loving pup.

He is very protective of his person and for that reason needs someone who is understanding of his past. He was very mistreated and lived outside all his life. He will always need boundaries and this is typical of the breeds.

Shadow talks a lot, he makes growly sounds and some people take it as aggression but it's not. He is simply speaking and it's almost like a purring cat.

Shadow is very dog selective and for that reason along with his past we prefer him to go to a home with no young children or other animals. While he can coexist with another furkid we would prefer that he not have to,

Shadow is between 2 and 3 yrs old, weighs in the 15lb range, is housebroken, loves to go for walks, is crate trained and takes corrections with a spray bottle :)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shadow, a Freeport Spitz (Unknown Type, Small) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Spitz (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Freeport, or seeking a Spitz (Unknown Type, Small) dog from a breeder in Freeport.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Freeport 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 Freeport 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 Spitz (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Spitz (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Freeport paves the way for another one to be saved.
