Meet Spike

NOTE: Spike and Morkie are bonded and must be adopted together.

Spike is my name and snuggles are my game! I’m a spry 11-year-old Toy Poodle/Maltese mix weighing in at a whopping 8 pounds. My owners had to give me and my brother up because they were moving - and even though it’s been confusing for us, we’re trying to make the best of it! I’m totally housebroken, and while I’m not crate-trained, I’m great at being left home alone. 
Listen folks, I’m 10. I’m a bit of a grumpy old man. It happens! I’m not terribly fond of other dogs getting up in my business. I like to carry my bones and toys around uninterrupted… and I’ll give ya a solid growl if I think you might wanna steal ‘em! I like soft food, because my teeth have seen better days. (But that also means it’ll be hard for me to cause any damage at your house!) I like to sleep in cozy places like your couch, your bed, and your lap. I don’t know how I feel about cats, but I guess kids would be alright… as long as they don’t steal my spotlight. I’m gonna need *ALL* of the attention. I need ear scratches, belly rubs, and lots of love 24/7, please and thank you. I dig the occasional walk and car ride, and I like being outside as long as I’m with you! 
While I may be in the twilight of my life, I still have lots of love to give and I want to share it with you! Who wants a puppy nipping and piddling everywhere, when you can get a chill, handsome old man instead? Go ahead and fill out that application… you know you want to!

We love our dogs. We want happy lives for all of them and are looking for the home that provides the best fit for each dog’s individual needs. Please understand that there may be multiple families interested in this dog.

Also, please know that the breed mix listed is simply a guess. In most cases, we don’t know their background. We encourage you to base your decision on individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on our guess.

Please understand, we only adopt our animals out near the Chicagoland area. Questions? Email us at Hope to see you become part of the SCCR family!
