This approximately 2-year-old, Boxer-mix is a smart, friendly and likeable fellow. A medium-size, attractive dog with a shorthair coat of brown with white accents — Spike is sweet, loving affection and attention. He is reported to be good with kids and other dogs, and he needs owner(s) willing to give him love, attention, nutritious food, exercise in a fenced area or on a leash, and some basic obedience training.
