Help Us Give Spruce a Happy First Birthday

Monday, January 23, 2012 - 11:30am

Our snuggly, playful puppy Spruce has spent most of his young life at the ASPCA. On January 25, Spruce will turn one year old—and we’re pretty sure his Number 1 birthday wish is a loving forever home. (OK, Number 2 is probably a rope toy.) Will you help us find him a home?

Spruce loves snuggling with people, playing with other dogs, and getting lots of exercise. (He’s the perfect running buddy.) He’s loved by those who work closely with him, but he’s had lots of bad luck in his short life.

Spruce first came to us as a three-pound, little puppy. He and his siblings had just been rescued from the streets of the Bronx. We watched Spruce grow and get adopted…and then come back to us due to a change in his adopter’s life. Unfortunately for Spruce, this happened a few more times—always because his adopters had a life change.

Enough is enough. Spruce deserves better. He needs stability, and a family who will love him forever—no matter what. Could that be you?

We’re hoping that some experienced dog folks will give Spruce the happy first birthday he deserves. If you live in a 12-and-up household and would enjoy cuddling and working with this energetic sweetie, come meet Spruce!
