Spike is a 5-year-old male pit bull dog, white and red (ID #A541177). Spike is a spirited dog with a fun-loving personality. He is still working on his manners and would do best with a family who is willing to work with him to help him become the best he can be. Spike has a lot of energy and loves to run and play with toys and will thrive with an experienced family who can help him expend some of that energy. He also loves treats and food. While Spike only knows how to “sit,” he is eager to learn more. He loves food so much, he will probably learn other commands fairly easily. Spike has lived with another large dog. While he hasn’t met children before, shelter staff think he may like them. It would be best to meet first to see if they get along (children and dogs). However, he loves food so much he can get a little cranky if you take it away, so small children may not be suitable. Spike is a giant lovebug who would love someone to take him home. Spike is neutered, current on his vaccinations and micro-chipped. His $200 adoption fee also includes a free visit to the veterinarian of your choice and 30 days of pet insurance through Trupanion. You can find out more about Spike on RASKC’s website at www.kingcounty.gov/adoptapet. Click on “dog” and type in his name. You can meet other animals available for adoption in person, seven days a week, at RASKC’s King County Pet Adoption Center in Kent, 21615 64th Ave. S.; Monday: 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday to Friday: noon to 6 p.m., Saturday and Sunday: noon to 5 p.m. Call 206-296-PETS, or email pets@kingcounty.gov.
