Born on Christmas Day, little Michael is ready for his new home!

Today for Dog Days, we’re talking about little, baby Michael.

Michael is only 8 weeks old and has a very special birthday. He was born on Christmas Day! He recently arrived at the Southwest Michigan SPCA and is now ready for his forever home.

Since he’s so young, he’s had the majority of his shots except for rabies (because he’s too young). He is neutered, microchipped and ready to find a forever home!

Keep in mind that this is a very young pup, so he will need training and lots of cuddles. But, since he’s still a baby, he should get along with any other pet in the house. If you’re ready to commit, Michael would make a great addition to your family! New to puppy training? Carefree. The Internet is full of advice to help you succeed in your training. For example:

  • discourage jumping right away
  • say no to nips and bites
  • End workouts on a high note, whether it’s a treat, lots of pets, or playtime.

If you have other pets in the home, the SW Michigan SPCA recommends a meeting before proceeding with the adoption. Also, if you are a tenant, you will need to bring a copy of your lease.

I’m not ready for a puppy. Are there other animals to adopt?

The answer to that is always, YES! Whether because of the pandemic or some other reason, the SPCA of Southwest Michigan and many other shelters across the country are experiencing a high volume of animals in their shelters.

If you’re ready to adopt but aren’t ready for the responsibilities that come with a puppy, you can either stop by the SPCA of Southwest Michigan or view the animals (dogs and cats) available for adoption. here.

We feature a new pet for adoption from the Southwest Michigan SPCA every Thursday at 7:35 a.m., both live and on Facebook. Join us next week to see what cuties we have for Dog Days!
