Spike needs his family ... NOW! He is an older Staffie who could live with children, but not cats or another dog. He needs a secure garden and keen exit management as he had the habit of getting out of his last home. Spike travels well in the car though initially he is a little vocal.Video: SPIKE speaks. PART ONE: Looking for a home Video: Spike happy to watch BowHis Story:
Spike was found stray and this time unclaimed. He initially shot out of his kennel given the chance but has now settled - perhaps he likes to go for walks! His new family will have to be aware in case he 'door darts'. Spike is now neutered, chipped and vax'd.Advert:
Spike is a wonderful example of the Stafford. He is all smiles and adores company. He loves to be out and about so don't please think he is retired ... he has got a lot of living ahead. He is an easy mixer but a little bit too interested in life for a cat's comfort. He is housetrained and amenable, with a bonus lick given with every encounter.
Spike is an 11 year old Staffie according to his chip, though you wouldn't guess. His name doesn't suit him and in fact he is very, very soft. His teeth are fine and his general health is good. He is a wonderful example of his breed and he would suit a first time dog owner family.
