Hi my name is Spike. I am a 15-year-old, 10½-pound male Terrier mix who has had a rough time. I was finally surrendered to a shelter and my previous owner had always kept me outside and not cared for me properly. Well when the shelter contacted SBRET, it pretty much broke their hearts that I was 15 years old and had never had the joy of living in the house with my people and sleeping on cozy beds and cuddling on laps.
I am looking for someone to continue to bring that joy, love and tenderness back into my life. Although my life may not be as long as you would like, I am hoping someone will fill my remaining time with kindness, love, patience, and lots of cuddles. I am a little on the thin side and need a few extra meals lately which I really enjoy. I am quite healthy for an oldy and need no medication which is a blessing. I wear a belly band in the house as I have lived outside and am still learning the rules. I will poop outside if you take me out straight after a meal. I would prefer a house with wood flooring and no carpet as I do have the occasional accident and would hate to be shouted at. I have lots to give, I walk well on a leash and enjoy short regular walks. I sleep in a soft bed happily downstairs and wake up ready for my breakfast. My foster mom leaves out a pee pad in case I need to potty during the night. I absolutely love to be held and cuddled like a baby and I am happy to sit on someone's lap all day long. I am good with other dogs, my eyesight is quite good for my age and the squirrels don't bother me at all. My hearing is not great but I stay close to my foster family so no need to raise your voice! I don't need a fenced yard, just somewhere outside I can go out to potty on a leash. I would like a quiet house if possible and no small children. I hope you will consider me although I am an older dog, my foster mom says I deserve some love after the life I have had. I look forward to having a forever loving home with a mom/ dad to love me, my foster mom said I deserve it. If you are this person please fill out an application form, my adoption fee is reduced due to my age but I am fully vaccinated, had a full blood panel and have had my teeth cleaned and I am also microchipped. Thank you for looking! My adoption fee is $100.
