found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am purebred.
This precious boy loves playing chase, wrestling, and tug-of war with other small dogs and his human. He is also good at giving tons of kisses! Sparky likes most people that he meets and will bark at cats, squirrels or at someone walking their dog but is fairly good at obeying when asked to stop. Sparky enjoys have a chew toy since he is still a puppy. He really likes antlers and Himalayan dog chews.
Sparky was born on 5/21/2013 so he is quite young and will act very much like a puppy. Expect a dog full of energy which needs an exercise outlet. Sparky came to us out of a puppy mill very under but he is a healthy weight now. He is very leggy! Sparky is looking for a forever person that works from home, is retired, someone who can take him to work with them, or someone who works part-time away from the home. He becomes anxious when left home alone for more than a couple of hours at a time. As soon as his foster mom leaves he begins to pace excessively and bark. He most likely settles down after a while with his foster siblings to help comfort him. Sparky needs another small dog to play with and a securely fenced yard. Sparky is house trained, will occasionally use potty pads in an emergency and is learning to walk on a lead. He stays in a gated kitchen with some of his companions when he was to be left.
Sparky is up-to-date on vaccinations, neutered, micro chipped, heart worm negative and on preventative. He is being fostered in Northwest Arkansas and applications within driving distance will be considered first. If you have adopted a dog from ABGRA before or are a stellar applicant, a consideration will also be made. We never place our dogs in homes with invisible (electric) fencing and we never ship our dogs in cargo or transport them to adoptive homes. Travel to the foster home is the adopter’s responsibility. Doggy doors are OK as long as they are secured at night and when you are gone. Sparky is small enough to be carried away by a large hawk or other predator so should never be outside unattended.
