Spike is a 4-year-old black neutered male dog available for adoption at Help for Homeless Pets. This large golden retriever/Newfoundland mix is micro-chipped and has had bordetella, rabies, parvo and distemper vaccinations.
Spike is well-mannered. He gets along with kids and other dogs and likes going for walks. He’d enjoy a family or companion with a fenced yard or country home. He has a twin brother, Tiger, who also has a great personality.
To adopt Spike for $100 or Spike and Tiger for $150, contact Help for Homeless Pets, 2910 Hannon Road, 896-1700. Hours are from 1 to 6 p.m. every day.
Other available animals include small to large dogs, puppies, cats and kittens.
