Our Point Pet of the Week has been without a permanent home for over a year, and is now faced with being returned to shelter life because his foster mom is battling cancer.

Faithful, playful, and full of love is how the Monmouth County SPCA describes Champ Luke.

Champ is a 2.5-year-old hound-y mix who is puppy-playful yet loves to relax and cuddle on the couch at night.  He surrendered to the shelter over a year ago by a man from Asbury Park when he was forced to enter a nursing home.

Champ became part of the MCSPCA canine foster program because he didn't do well in a shelter/kennel...he was too stressed out and couldn't understand why he lost his home. But now he can only stay in his foster home for a few weeks longer.
His foster mom, who has cancer, can't say enough good things about him. Her biggest wish is that he gets a home for the holidays. Please let's make this a win-win and find Champ a home quickly.
Champ Luke is very affectionate and is a total people dog. He has been perfecting his leash walking skills and commands with an at-home trainer and is doing amazing!
Long walks and playing in the yard with his tennis balls are his favorite pastimes, but most of all he loves lying on the couch at night for a cuddle.
