Hello, my name is Spike & Troy!


More about me

Male (Small). Jack russell. Senior - DOB: 2009 & 2010.

Both Spike and Troy are very gentle and loving. They CRAVE attention and actually cry in their sleep – its so sad. Their owner and main care giver was murdered in the house right by their window – I suspect that they saw it happen and are still dealing with the trauma of the event (there was 4 gunshots). I took them into my care when it was discovered that my friend’s wife had left the house (due to the murder) and had left them at the house. We were asked to feed them – but ultimately felt it better to have them at our house. Unfortunately they do not get along with my dogs Geo and Turbo. Turbo will in all likelihood hurt them if a fight happens to break out. For this reason they are separated in our yard – which leaves little freedom and space for all of them.

Spike is a 9 year old jack Russell boy – he will be neutered, vaccinated & dewormed before homing. He is fantastic with children. He gets along with other dogs but does have some food aggression issues so will need to be fed separately.  He gets along with domestic staff.  NO cats or domestic birds.  Enjoys any sort of attention from people. Was a bit neglected in his previous home. Spike would ideally suit a home where he can retire and just be loved and accepted for his unique personality. He would defend his family to the death.

Troy is a dachshund boy who is 2 or 3 years old.  He will be neutered, vaccinated & dewormed before homing.  Troy gets along with other dogs, domestic staff & children.  Troy would make the perfect lapdog. He’s sweet and gentle.  Has a lot of energy but loves cuddling. Very timid and nervous. He loves chasing birds around the yard – although we try to discourage him.
