Story of the dog:

Spike and his siblings were rescued from Barstow, CA. They were born in a tire shop. The owner of the shop had the most beautiful adult German shepherd dogs someone can ever see. His dogs were meant to protect the place and they were highly trained. Unfortunately, the dogs were not spayed/neutered and they had a litter of puppies. The wife of the tire shop owner is a friend with one of our fosters. When the rescues were around 4 weeks of age, the mother stopped feeding them and she was so aggressive towards them. Therefore, the lady called our foster and asked if our rescue can take them. After few calls with our leads, the rescue asked the foster to drive to Barstow and take possession of the puppies. The puppies were bottle fed until they started eating wet food. They were then fed dry food and they have been doing pretty good. The puppies stayed in the rescue for 6 weeks after being relinquished. The rescue covered the expenses of spay for the mother of the dogs and returned her back to her owner.

During their stay at PetEmber, the puppies received up-to-date shots of vaccines (Parvo, distemper, adenovirus I, Adenovirus ii, Parainfluenza, and bordtella) and their up-do-date boosters. They have been dewormed and they received flea & tick control medication. The puppies were socialized. They are playful and smart. They are healthy and ready for a forever home. The puppies are not fully potty trained yet and you will need to work on that as an adopter. The puppies can lay with you on a couch watching TV and they can also go with you for a walk. They are precious and adorable. They will be medium-to-large size when fully grown.

The puppies are not spayed/neutered yet as they did not reach the age of sterility. All dogs must be spayed/neutered by 6 months of age as a part of the adoption agreement.

If you think that any of the puppies matches your criteria in a dog. Please consider giving them a home.
