Sparky is a senior in need of a forever home. She is about 12 years old and her owner gave her up. Sparky just wants to be a dog! She is very sweet but can be protective and doesn’t like to be picked up. Here’s what her Foster Mom says about Sparky!

“I might look like a toy. But I’m NOT. My favorite thing is to be a dog. I love to roam the backyard, I love walks (and do it well), am really good meeting other dogs (even big ones). I have adjusted so well in my current foster home. I’m currently residing with two other Eskimos and cats! The cats are curious about me – but not the other way around – and, if I feel like they’re getting too close (within 3 feet), I’ll grumble and they leave. As you see, I LOVE this couch, but am equally happy in my crate and am totally potty trained.

My only downside is that, as of now, I do not like to be picked up. I mean, unless I offer you my belly, I don’t want your hand going behind my neck and underneath me. Remember how I said earlier I AM NOT A TOY? I think I was mishandled in my former life and the bonds of trust were severed. But my Foster Mama is super impressed with my progress just in one week!”
