Spencer's my name, cuddling's my game! My main motto in life? Having a good time. As my last humans dumped me for their new baby --I know, right? --I am a newly single canine, trying to find a place to call home. Shall we get into my stats?

Check me out here and let's meet for coffee, err, dog biscuits.
