We don’t know much about Spencer prior to becoming a FOR pup but we do know this is one dog that definitely loves life. His foster mom says he is probably the happiest puppy she has ever fostered. He loves to play - with his people or his 4 legged (including the cat) foster siblings, or anything that just might qualify as a toy. He loves to zoom around the house or yard and has several sessions a day. He is smart, learning to sit for his treats in just 1 week but still has some work to do on understanding his limits. He immediately makes himself at home and feels he is deserving of quality couch and middle of the bed time whenever he chooses - back to those limits HA! He is crated at night and when left alone and does well. He is working on housebreaking and is doing well with that. He will go to the door when he wants to go outside. Due to his still having a little puppy distraction mentality, you sometimes have to remind him to go potty before he decides it is time to go back inside. He does well wth a routine when possible. He gets along well with people - adults and children - other dogs and cats (altho he thinks cats should play the same as dogs - he’s learning). Due to his high energy, he should be watched around small children as he matures and learns to control his energetic actions. He loves to be with people and to snuggle next to you when he is ready for down time. Spencer will be a great family dog, especially for an active family.

Spencer is neutered, current on vaccines, current on heart worm and flea preventative, microchipped and tested negative for heart worms. He is located in Birmingham, AL, but is available for adoption in your area! Fill out an application for this sweet boy here:

About Friends of Rescue - Knoxville, TN

About Our Rescue Group...

Friends of Rescue is a certified 501(c)(3) organization formed in 2009, consisting of volunteers who are devoted to saving shelter animals that are in danger of euthanasia. Southern shelters have a constant overflow of dogs and cats, little funding, and limited space. Once the animals arrive at the shelter, they have very little time. It is our goal to help save these adoptable animals and find loving individuals/families who will provide committed, FORever homes. We are NOT professional trainers or animal behaviorists; simply volunteers who are trying to save these animals from euthanasia. Each animal in our program is in a foster home and receives all age-appropriate vetting while in our care.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our animals are mostly fostered in northern Alabama. But we have many wonderful adopters who come from the Tennessee area to adopt our wonderful adoptables.
