Spike Needs a Home

About Spike


My name is… Spike

I am…  Around 3-4 years old

I am urgently looking for… A foster placement

Can I be rehomed with dogs? I seem OK with other dogs but I am needy and would prefer to be the only dog

Can I be rehomed with cats? No

Can I be rehomed with children? Older, over 10 years.


Spike is a male 3/4 yr old Staffie.
Spike has a sad tale to tell, he was brought in under a safe placement act as his owner went into hospital and was only supposed to stay a maximum of 28 days, Sadly 3 MONTHS LATER he is still in kennels and sadly owner is still in hospital. The owner has now allowed for Spike to go to rescue to find a wonderful new home as they do not want him to spend anymore time in kennels.
Spike is very people friendly but since he has been so long in kennels he gets very excited and hyper when he walks past the other dogs. Which can only be expected penned up in a kennel day after day for 3 months.
So we are looking for a MEGA URGENT foster placement so that this poor boy can get back into a normal happy life that he once had, and his owner can be reassured that this little boy is once again happy and loved. Sadly also Spike has started to loose weight due to kennel stress.

Please complete a fostering application form and get in touch with us ASAP.
