This is Spike from the Bindi litter!
Do you believe in love at first sight? One look at this guy's big eyes and ear to ear smile, and your heart will melt! Spike is so well-rounded, he will fit perfectly into a variety of homes and settings. He is just as happy sitting in your lap cuddling as he is playing with children and other dogs. He is confident and curious, interacting with dogs his own size and larger. Spike is currently fostered in a home with his 4 siblings, a 40lb dog, and a 70lb dog. His energy level and play style tends to match that of the dog he is with. With proper introductions, there is no doubt Spike will do great in any family unit.
Per his foster mom, potty training is going well as is Spike's understanding of phrases like "leave it" and "go to bed". He is very food motivated and with consistency, should adapt to his new home without difficulty. Spike hasn't met a treat he didn't like, although cow ears and soft Milk Bones are at the top of his favorites list. He also likes soft beds, blankets, and squeaker toys. For bath time, he sits in the tub with his foster mom, enjoying the warm water. Outside, he loves to lie around on old chair cushions and soak up the sun. He also is an avid explorer, checking out the bushes and flowers, and chasing any bug or lizard he comes across.
Spike's fur is a gorgeous color, and he is even more handsome than pictures can show. He does have shorter legs and is around 22 lbs at 6 months old, so he will need help getting onto taller things like a bed, and he might not be the best hiking partner. We think he’s a cattle dog/pittie mix, but with a rescue it’s always a mystery! Spike will need a patient and loving home where his new family will continue to work on setting healthy boundaries as well as crate and potty training. Are you ready to let this little boy into your heart? Don't wait to grab up this precious boy before someone else does!

Three Little Pitties Rescue is a nonprofit dog and cat rescue that partners with the community to make a difference. Our mission is to reduce the homeless pet population through community outreach, free spay and neuter services, and saving all breeds of dogs and cats from the streets or animal shelters that oftentimes have no choice but to euthanize animals for space. We prepare them for adoption by properly vetting and providing individualized care through our incredible behavior program that consists of socialization and leash training for all animals that enter our adoption program prior to matching them with loving families who will treasure them for the rest of their lives. They are rescue dogs and will require continued training efforts once adopted, but will be well on their way to being the best dogs that they can be! Three Little Pitties Rescue will soon be celebrating our 5 year anniversary! Over the course of this time, we have been very fortunate for so much growth, allowing us to further connect with the community and save many lives.
