Back to Happy Tails


In October 2011 our dear Labrador Vinny passed over leaving his sister Wizzo, a Parsons Jack Russell Cross, alone. It took us a few months before we could consider getting another dog so it was not until January 2012 I started looking at Trade Me, the SPCA and the Humane Society web sites.


Then we saw a picture of Spike on the Humane Society site. He had been found running loose in West Auckland jumping with fleas and in an emaciated condition.  


We were asked if we could bring Wizzo out to Silverdale to meet Spike. We drove into the country and the two dogs met, sniffed and then ignored each other. After a home inspection, Spike came to live with us. He is settling in well, is full of energy and plays with Wizzo which is a joy to watch. We have progressed well with the ‘sit’ command but are not going so well with ‘come’. It takes patience.


We are so grateful Spike has come to us and look forward to many years of fun, exercise, photos and joy.
