He has been staying outside so he could be an outside dog; however, I’m sure he would want to be inside with his new owners. Bam Bam is very energetic and affectionate. He learns new things pretty fast, but will learn even more with treats and toys. Bam Bam has been around children ages 2 to 6 years old and seemed to be fine with them. He is neutered, heartworm negative, and up to date on all vaccinations. His adoption fee for the month of June is $60. SPCA of Bradley County is open Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. for adoptions. If you have any questions call or email at (423)790-1915 or
