Hi, I'm

Spike

my favorite thing to do is...

relax on the couch while having a nice belly rub

Meet Spike, aka the grumpy grandpa of TLBD. Despite being a solidly middle-aged Parsons terrier mix, Spike has the disposition of a man that just wants to enjoy his retirement after an exhausting lifetime of manual labor. His great big puppy dog eyes and prairie dog posture make him a master of first impressions. He however is just waiting to weasel his way into your life, heart, and secure a spot on the couch. He will ask for head pats and belly rubs (BEG for them actually) and is not afraid to demand more once you stop.

Spike is house-trained, walks well on a leash, and gets along well with dogs that are indifferent to his antics. He is looking for a forever home that appreciates his old man personality and is looking for a low-maintenance, low-energy guy hoping to live out his retirement in all his golden day glory.

*Breed is an estimate / approximation and cannot be guaranteed. As with all rescue pups, we don't have a full genetic history to allow us to identify breeds with 100% accuracy. We of course encourage you to do more research once you adopt a pup (and are happy to share DNA testing options) and share the results!
