Meet Spud

Add to favourites

Spud has had a rough start in life but after coming to us, things are starting to look up. Spud is a very happy boy, he LOVES every person he meets, he is so playful! He really enjoys spending his days inside the office on his big bed with all his toys or outside on a nice day with his doggy girl friends.

Spud is in good health though he takes an anti-anxiety medication to reduce his stress in shelter and around other dogs. He may not need this medication for life but should stay on it while he transitions into a new home. Unfortunately we had to make the decision to amputate a portion of his tail due to a painful lump. Despite this Spud is still a happy wiggly boy!

This guy can be selective when it comes to other dogs. Some are friends while others are foe. Spud may react to certain dogs while on leash, because of that we are currently working on muzzle training so he can safely and comfortably socialize with other dogs. Spud may need multiple meets before he can become friends with potential puppy pals. Spud is not suited to live with cats due to his desire to chase them. He will need an adult only home at this time.

Spud is full of energy and enthusiasm! Spud will make an amazing companion to the right household!
