Dog Rescue Stories: Spike Had Four Homes in His First Four Months

By Jarissa Aquinde, Positively Woof Rescue and Adoption Story Editor

I was born in mid-June, 2016. I don’t know much about my doggie parents, nor the location where I was born, nor the exact date I was born. I just know that during the first four months of my life, I had already been in and out of four different homes.Don’t get me wrong…they all loved me very much, but due to different circumstances, they couldn’t care for me anymore. Yes, I was scared and confused, but I knew something good was going to happen to me. It just had to!

On October 21st, 2016 my forever daddy’s manager (who was my third human), told him that she needed to find a new home for me, because her leasing contract didn’t allow more than four dogs. So, since I was newest member of her furry pack, she decided to find me a new home. 

She knew my daddy and mommy had purchased a big house, with a nice, large patio and she asked my daddy if he wanted to adopt me. According to my daddy, the first time he saw my picture he knew he wanted to give me my forever home. It took my parents two days to decide, but when they finally said, “Yes, we’ll adopt him”, another person had already taken me home.At that point, my daddy didn’t lose hope and asked that person if he could still adopt me. He said that his house was better than an apartment and that he and my mom were going to give me the best life possible. After a few tries, the other person finally agreed. Then, on October 23rd, 2016, at around 10:00pm on a rainy evening, I met my forever parents. I remember that day perfectly because I was scared, but I knew I finally found my forever home. 

From that day forward, my life changed completely! I had my own bed, the best food, lots of toys, and most importantly, a loving forever family. I am such a happy, healthy pup! I love traveling to new places, meeting new friends, and going on adventures with my parents!
