  • Story

    Spider is one gem of a pooch and is a true testament to the old saying “you can’t judge a book by its cover”. Despite his size and stature, Spider’s loving eyes express only kindness and gratitude.

    Stuffed squeaky toys, cheese, eating snow and short, ambling walks are a few of Spider’s most favourite things! Although Spider has only the sweetest of temperaments, he is searching for an experienced dog owner to love him unconditionally. Spider’s exuberance and love for all things in life can sometimes be intimidating, he’ll need someone with the confidence to keep him in check.
    Spider is also looking for an active home to help control his high level of energy which can be difficult to manage with such a strong boy. His bursts of energy are both thunderous and hilarious, but if given the right amount of exercise, Spider will spend a great deal of time napping and is generally quiet in the home. He is great with other dogs, even those who are maybe not so accepting, and may do best with a canine brother or sister to provide some comfort and energy-burning doggie versions of wrestlemania. Spider enjoys play time with older children, but a home without small children may be best as this tank is not aware of his own strength and may knock over the little ones.
    Spider is rusty with his basic commands but is remembering quickly that manners are a must, he has definitely mastered the art of potty training! Spider walks well on a leash and is working on learning to stay side-by-side rather than walking ahead of his beloved humans.
    Spider is happy to be left home alone to roam the house, he does not take kindly to confinement and will most certainly Houdini his way out of anything, you’ll return home to find him proudly waiting at the door for you. Spider’s enthusiastic greetings are of epic proportions, we should all be so lucky to come home to such a warm welcome!

    If you like the strong, silent type, Spider is your guy.
