Meet Spike (Now Nash)

Meet Spike, who is now called Nash. He was adopted a few years ago and is being returned due to no fault of his own. His humans are divorcing and he needs a home that can give him the time and love that he deserves. Spike is a GORGEOUS Lab/Shepherd mix, about 5-6 years old, weighing 90#. He is neutered and UTD. Spike is the only dog in his home, but has done well when taken to daycare. He's alone for most of his day, so he’s understandably excited when he sees his humans. Nash is trustworthy and is allowed to roam freely in his home. He would do best in a home with a fenced yard where he can run and get proper exercise. Spike lives with children and has always done well with them. He know basic commands and craves love and attention. He'd love nothing better than to hang out and chill on the sofa with you! He's excited to meet his new family.


If you are interested in meeting and/or adopting, the first step is to please visit our website to complete an application and read all of our FAQs:

**Please do not use the "Introduce Yourself" feature. The information needed to determine if you might be a match for one of our animals can only be found on our application. An inquiry, questions or introduction through Petfinder is NOT an application. All known details about our animals are posted on their profile and updated daily. Other info would be discussed in detail with the foster during the application review process. Due to the number of introductions/questions received (hundreds daily) we ask you submit an application on our website (that application can be used for any dog with Take Paws Rescue).

The adoption fee for adult dogs covers age appropriate vaccinations, microchip, spay/neuter if not yet performed, heartworm test & appropriate heartworm treatment by the rescue's vet. All dogs in our care are also kept up-to-date on HW/Flea Prevention. Please see our website for more information.

2022 Adoption Fee Scale for non-benefactor animals:
Puppies under 12 months - $350
Dogs over 12 months - $250

For additional information, including the adoption process and our adoption fee scale for all our adoptable pets, see our FAQs page:

*Any breed labels used by Take Paws Rescue, its employees/volunteers, or on vet records provided cannot be guaranteed. Breed labels are given based on information obtained during intake and/or best guesses based on appearance and/or temperament of the dogs and Take Paws Rescue gives no assurance to the accuracy of these labels. Labels are necessary for postings to many animal networking sites, such as Pet Finder, and are no way a guarantee. Additionally, exact age and potential size cannot be guaranteed.

*Take Paws Rescue saves dogs from high-kill shelters in Southeast Louisiana, owner surrenders, and discarded dogs with uncertain futures. All of our puppies live in foster homes where they are socialized, and well cared for. An application will be required to make sure it’s the perfect match!
