Spike's Story...
Birthdate: 5/4/10

Gender: Male

Breed: Boston Terrier/Pug mix

Spike is pretty sure he would have liked Florida. Sandy beaches.. warm weather.. plenty of people to pet him.. what’s not to like? Unfortunately Spike’s former owners didn’t give him a choice in the matter.

When they made the decision to flee the impending icy winter of Pennsylvania to live in the sunshine, sunshine and more sunshine, Spike found he wasn’t invited. The day before they were due to move, they dropped him off at New Lease on Life with nothing but the collar around his neck.

Spike still isn’t quite sure why his family left him, but he does know that he loves his new harness and all of his new friends at New Lease on Life, both doggie and human.

Spike is a very good boy. He is already fully housebroken and enjoys his walks outside. He doesn’t even pull on his leash. He is perfectly happy to walk at your pace, whatever that might be. All he asks is that you let him roll around under bushes occasionally because let’s face it, bushes are fun!

Don’t miss Spike’s video debut! He already knows Sit and how to catch his treats right out of the air, and he’s very proud to show off.

Spike gets along very well with other dogs, whether they’re bigger than him or smaller. He also loves kids. Even his former owners said he got along great with all of the kids in their family. Cats he’s not so sure about. Spike would much rather bark at the cats than anything else, but with some time and patience, he would probably be happy to have a kitty housemate.

We were told that Spike is a Boston Terrier/Pug mix. His former owners said they got him as a puppy and saw both of his parents, but he is a bit bigger than either of those breeds normally would be. He is full grown at a year and a half old and weighs only 29 pounds. If you watch his video, you can get a better idea of his size.

Spike is not yet neutered but that will be done BEFORE you take him home. In fact, he already has an appt schedule for Tuesday, September 6, for surgery.

If you would like to meet him before his surgery is done, visit the shelter any time during adoption hours, Thursday through Sunday 5 to 8pm, or call 330–397–8270 to schedule a private appt to meet him at another time or on another day.

To reserve Spike for adoption, you must meet him at the shelter and complete an adoption application. If approved, you must leave a 50% deposit to place him on hold for your family. He will have his neuter done on Tuesday, and he can go home with you as early as Wednesday.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Spike, a Struthers Boston Terrier/Pug dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boston Terrier/Pug for sale in Struthers, or seeking a Boston Terrier/Pug dog from a breeder in Struthers.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Struthers 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 Struthers 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 Boston Terrier/Pug breeders who help with Boston Terrier/Pug rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Struthers paves the way for another one to be saved.
