Meet Spike

Hi my names Spike. I love humans but don't worry I'll let you know if a stranger enters the yard. Watch out though once I've been introduced to you I expect lots of cuddles. I'm a VERY affectionate little man who was surrended with my mate Teddy to the pound

I can't understand why, no one gives as good as cuddles as me. Just ask my foster mum. I have very expressive eyes and although I'm fine outside I love being inside with you. I quite happily stay on my bed (your laps better though) and I'm no trouble. I have grade 1 luxating patella, (a very mild grade) which doesn't bother me at all. I also have a couple of grey whiskers (I think I look distinguished). I love cuddles from everyone

kids too, however I am quite small so kids over 6 would be better as someone younger may accidentally hurt me. I am ok with other dogs (I can get jealous though),which is why one friend in the yard is enough competition. On the other hand I do need that one companion as I will get bored without them. My foster mum thinks I might have a bit of pug in me as I bond very strongly to my owner and have similar colouring to a pug. I love my walks and my foster mum says I'm quite good ( except when I stop half way to reassure her that I still love her lots). I would prefer an experienced dog owner who understands the importance of the human being the pack leader.

Spike was adopted on 17 July 2008 after 10 months in foster care
