Spock didn’t need to travel out of this universe to find a great loving new home.

To round out the month of May, we have yet another adorable pet who is waiting to be adopted. Through our teaming up with North Shore Animal League America, Movie TV Tech Geeks features an adoptable pet every week that is looking for a new family to share its love. By showing off some of the deserving animals, we hope to raise awareness for pet adoption and find as many pets their forever home as possible.

Even if you don’t live in the area, you can still contact North Shore Animal League, and they can guide you to the closest no-kill rescue shelter in your area for a similar dog or even arrange travel arrangements. If you have a friend you think would be interested, pass these articles on as we are working even harder this year to get even more pets adopted than last year.

North Shore Animal League America, which is the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization. Since 1944, the organization has strived towards achieving its ultimate vision: “To put an end to animal cruelty and euthanasia and to create a world in which all companion animals find compassionate permanent homes.”

To date, North Shore has helped find homes for over 1,000,000 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens.

With their main headquarters in Port Washington, New York, North Shore provides crucial resources such as a pet adoption center, a pet health center that offers affordable veterinary care and much more.

Now to introduce this week’s furry…Spock!

Spock is a 10-year-old, spunky purebred Miniature Poodle. He was rescued by the shelter from the Midwest and is now temporary residing at their facility while he waits for a welcoming family and home. He is fully-grown and has soft curly hair – not fur – therefore he does not shed. Being the adult pup he is, Spock has developed a calm and relaxed demeanor over the years. He is partially housebroken, however with some additional training he should be able to be fully housebroken in a fairly short period of time.

Nowadays Poodles are often associated with luxury, however, this shouldn’t overshadow the fact that they are diligent, and hard-working dogs when needed. The name “Poodle” comes from the German “Pudel,” which means “splash in the water”. In France, these dogs are referred to as “Caniche,” which is a shortened phrase for “duck dog.” Thus, it is not surprising that Poodles were originally bred to be water retrievers, which meant they were used to fetch birds like duck and geese for hunters.

While they are generally no longer hunters, Poodles today are still known for their ability to be trained and responsive to their owner’s commands. They often excel at numerous aspects of dog training, including obedience and agility.

Another unique aspect of Poodles is that they are often considered hypoallergenic. They do not shed in the traditional sense, thus they are good for people who are sensitive to animal fur. However, although they do not shed much fur, their hair can get matted. Therefore, it is important to keep on top of the dog’s fur coat by brushing and trimming it regularly.

Rosie Tombolo, the Kennel Manager at North Shore Animal League America notes, “Spock is a spunky senior who enjoys frolicking in the park and going on walks with his two-legged friends. He loves being with his small dog friends and Spock needs to go home to a family with other small canines.”

The staff at North Shore note that Spock and his personality may be best suited for a home with children at least 13 years of age. In addition, they feel that he would likely be able to adapt to a family that may have a feline friend already roaming around.

Moreover, Spock’s gentleness and big heart makes him an excellent companion and addition to any home.

STILL SEARCHING FOR A GREAT HOME

CASSIDY

Fortunately rescued by North Shore from the mid-west, Cassidy is a three-year-old Terrier and Schnauzer mix. She is a smaller dog with soft white and light brown hair and an adorable look that will have you falling in love instantly. Although she is a bit shy and timid at first, she is quick to warm up and show affection to those that earn her trust.

Terriers are known for being a relatively small breed although there are different variations. They were first bred and trained to hunt rodents and vermin. Therefore, the breed is known for being active and high-energy. The name terrier is actually in reference to the Latin word “terra” meaning Earth, and it signifies their love of digging which was once useful for finding prey such as moles and badgers.

Due to their trained hunting past, Terriers are also notably intelligent and are quite responsive to training. They are often very single-minded, meaning that they become very concentrated at the task at hand, whether that be playing fetch or hunting prey. During the time that Cassidy has been at North Shore’s campus, her adaptability has been thoroughly demonstrated through her ability to learn how to walk on a leash, as well as do her business outside. In addition, her particular breed is also known for being territorial. They are often protective of their homes and loved ones, thus, can form very strong bonds with their owners.

Rosie Tombolo, the Kennel Manager at North Shore Animal League America notes, “During Cassidy’s time here at North Shore Animal League America, our medical and behavioral staff have worked with her to teach her how to walk on a leash and how to use the bathroom outside. She is a smart dog with so much love to give.”

The staff at North Shore also wants future potential owner(s) of Cassidy to be aware that she does have a heart murmur. This is a medical condition that requires her to be seen by a vet twice a year to listen to and view her heart through an echocardiogram. Other than this condition, Cassidy is in great health and has plenty of joy-filled years to share with her future family.

Lastly, it is recommended that Cassidy go to a home with children at least 12 years of age, as she is a relatively timid little pup. Nonetheless, Cassidy is yet another incredibly caring and deserving dog that will bring plenty of love and laughter into any home she is welcomed into.
