Germany was brought to the BC SPCA as a two-month-old stray along with litter-mates from the Fort Nelson area.
They were infested with lice and had to be in quarantine for quite some time before they could become available for adoption.
The North Peace branch had just received two large litters of pups in rapid succession, and were a bit overwhelmed with all the babies in need of care.
Staff needed to come up with unique names rather quickly, and cleverly decided on geographical names for the new furry friends. They were named Germany, Sweden, China, Finland, Cuba, and Asia. Each of them were different from the others but all were adorable.
Germany was adopted in October 2009 and was renamed Skye. He went to obedience school for three months in Victoria with his new guardian Debbie K. of Fort St. John.
Debbie also learned to be an obedience instructor and has since opened up a business of her own called All About Dogs.
Skye (Germany) loves to play with everything he sees, until he's been told otherwise. Even the cats in his family can let him know when they've had enough fun.
He has lots of playmates and loves to walk and run in the tall grass. Skye recently visited the North Peace Branch of the BC SPCA to show us how tall he'd grown in such a short time. He just turned a year old in August! The staff and volunteers are very happy that Skye, and many others who have been adopted from the BC SPCA have found good homes. Congratulations!
