Video Featuring Dog (Part 2): SPIKE

“Once Human Bond is Established, He can be a Good Boy”

From Volunteer Joe R:
To any potential foster or adopter:
For Spike it is all about establishing a “human bond”. It may not happen immediately; he needs time to develop a level of trust and bond with you at his own pace. You should not force things upon him and respect his personal space. Spike is a different dog outside his cage and is more relax and calm. Keeping Spike in his comfort zone is critical for him and you. If you do all these things, he will respond as you see in this video. He is food motivated, so additional positive reinforcement training should be easy to accomplish. Personally for me, his ideal home would be with one whom has past dog behavior skills and is strong physically and emotionally. Also young toddlers might represent a problem with him, preferably teenage children for him. Spike seems to do well with other dogs, not sure about cats, you can contact the shelter for a cat test. Spike can be a loyal and protective companion for you, if you give him an opportunity. Thanks for reading

These are some comments made by the people who walked with Madea:

Tiger & I enjoyed the walk today and meeting Madea. She is super sweet and very cute; hope she gets a forever home very soon.

She was sweet and settled in with the group easily…and got Chip’s message the first time around…a quick learner!

DCAWS Featured Dog: Spike

Video Featuring Dog: Spike

DCAWS “Longest Active Resident Dog” Spike.

From Volunteer Joe R:

This video shows Spike after you truly get to know him. Spike takes a long time to gain his trust with you. You have to “respect his space” and understand the term “reactive dog”. You can not force yourself upon him. You must let him take his time to come to you and gently let him get to know you. In this video is a STL volunteer who met Spike for only the second time, but he worked with Spike for about four hours at his first adoption event recently. We are not sure of Spike’s breed, but we think he might be Aikta mix. Aiktas are known not to be warm to immediate strangers, but become loyal and protective dogs once they gain your trust. Spike is well worth the effort if you are devoted towards him. Spike would make a great dog to a single person or young couple looking for a loyal protective dog without children or other pets. Are you the one for Spike?

DCAWS Featured Dog: CLAUDIA

DCAWS “Sweet Innocent Gentle Girl” Miss Claudia.

Here is a Facebook Posting we did about Claudia:

From Volunteer Joe R:

Claudia was evaluated by four of our most knowledgeable STL volunteer dog handlers and their evaluation comments are included in Claudia’s Petfinder profile bio. Personally, I really enjoyed my time with Claudia as we ventured through Forest Park in Saint Louis. Claudia was really good meeting other dogs (see her Petfinder profile) and walking among strangers. She was not nervous around bicycles or rollerblading and loud noises like buses did not bother her either. Claudia is a special sweet innocent gentle dog who only knows love and should be rewarded with the same type of owner. Something she did not experience full time at her original home but now is in the loving hands of DCAWS. Really hoping she comes to Saint Louis more often to adoption events so she can get the well deserved fresh start and second chance she deserves.

DCAWS Featured Dog: JACK

Video Featuring Dog: Jack

DCAWS “Well Trained & Smart” Dog Jack. Jack has been in foster care for about six months. He lives with other dogs, cats and children and he knows how to adjust to them all. Jack is a “very sociable” dog. The foster parent loves Jack, but she really can not keep him because she has multiple dogs and cats to care for. She would love to see Jack in a loving and caring home surrounded by other pets and a family environment. Jack does excellent at adoption events, he is loved by all our volunteers. All the DCAWS volunteer staff are dumbfounded why Jack has not been adopted, we can only think he has fallen into the “black dog syndrome”. Please help us and his foster parent by finding Jack the loving and caring home he truly deserves!
