Let me introduce myself. My name is Spike. Yep, you heard me right. It is Spike. When you think of "Spike" you may think of a big burly guy, but I am not. I do need to lose 10-12 pounds or so (I weighed 72.3 lbs at the good Doctors) and may have already lost a couple of pounds since I have been here, but to look at me I am not what you would expect for a Spike.  :) I have been to see the good Doctor and I was given a very clean bill of health. I will be 6 on the 14th of October .

Foster mom heard that I am not be real good with dogs that want to play with me, but I have been fine with that. My foster sister, Peanut, wants to play ALL the time and we play a lot together. If I have had enough I let her know and she goes on her way. Usually to one of my other foster siblings. Also it was not known for sure how I would be around other dogs, but I met my two foster sisters and two foster brothers with no problems at all and I get along really well with them.

My fur is curly in some places and foster mom says I am just a cutie patootie. I am a velcro dog and I have to know where foster mom is all the time. I follow her wherever she goes and I just lay down near her. Sometimes I will go to her for some lovin' and to make sure that she knows that I am still here, but then I go lay down again. When she sits on the couch, I jump up and lay down right next to her just in case she wants to pet and love on me. As you can tell I am a people dog. I love hanging out with my peeps and I am always soliciting tummy rubs. I LOVE to roll on my back with all fours in the air. ( Pssst....I know that will get me lots of tummy rubs. Works well.) If I don't think that you are paying enough attention to me and/or petting me enough then I will "talk" to you and let you know that. Hey...that works well also. 

I get along well with kids and usually the cats as well. Sometimes I will run after them but it is not to hurt then, it is to play with them, but the cats think differently on that. Hehe.

I am a very good dog. I know that because foster mom and foster dad tell me that all the time. I come when I am called. I sit nice when asked to do so. When foster mom is fixing my breakfast or supper I lay quietly out of her way and just wait. Unlike my foster brothers and sisters who are under foot. I have free roam of the house when foster mom and foster dad are not home and I am not destructive. I think that goes along with foster mom telling me that I am such a good dog. I really don't think that I can be told tooooo many times that I am a good dog.  :)

There was a little storm the other night with thunder boom booms and I was just fine, but I am told that if that was to happen when I was outside that I would run to the door and paw at the door to be let in. But I acted like I didn't even hear it.

If you want one of the bestest puppers who has lots and lots of lovin' to give than I am the perfect pupper for you. I really would like a furever home where someone was home most of the time or at least part of the day. But if not, I think that I would really like the company of another pupper to have around. Foster mom is just not telling me I am a good boy to be telling me that. I really am one of the bestest puppers and you would not be disappointed at all. So if you feel that I am the pupper for you and your family and you want all the livin' you can get than I am the boy for you. So please let your placement advisor know and you can meet me and see for yourself just how wonderful I am. Hope to see you soon.

Updates

Hello,

I'm writing with an unfortunate update on Spike. He passed away on Thursday, August 30th, due to kidney failure. I had him for three years and absolutely loved every moment we spent together!

When I get an opportunity, I will pass along photos - he filled my life with so much love and companionship! 

All the best, and in thanks for your work,

Dean S.

Spike's foster mom here, well, now Auntie Kay, to tell you all that Spike went to his furever home today. He was adopted by a wonderful young man who will be a wonderful doggy daddy. Spike will be able to spend most of his day with his new dad and that will make Spike a very happy pupper. It was a very good match for both of them and they will be very happy together. Big congrats to Spike and dad Dean S.
