found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and not good with dogs.
SPARTAN IS A COTON DE TULEAR.
5/4/15 - Spartan is a very energetic dog. He will make up his own games if there is no one to play with; he will take his ball onto the sofa and hide it in the cushions and then find it all by himself. He will toss his bone over the back of the sofa just to jump down and get it and do it all over again. He could be trained to be an agility dog; he loves to please his person and catches his ball in mid air when it is thrown to him. He anticipates which way his ball will bounce and gets there just in time to grab it.
He cannot wait for his morning walk, it is a highlight of his day. When it is time to eat he eagerly awaits his bowl of food. He just loves life; he is a happy dog and he loves his person. He runs into the garage at every opportunity just in case he might be able to get a car ride. He settles down at night and sleeps at the end of the big bed all through the night. He watches out the front window and barks whenever someone is in the driveway; he is protective of his house and property. He is a great little guy just waiting for the right forever home.
3/5/15 - Cotons are the royal dog of Madagascar and many years ago could only be owned by royalty. Sparty is very smart and learns quickly. He has a very sweet nature with his people. He will lie next to you on the sofa rather than sit in your lap.
He sleeps at the foot of the big bed all through the night. He is housetrained as long as he is taken out frequently. As is common to his breed, he loves his owner and will do best in a home where someone is home most of the day and leaves him for just a short time. He rides will in the car.
He should be the only dog in the house. When the other dogs in his foster home fuss at each other, Sparty gets irritated and he tries to break it up. He was attacked several times by the larger dog in his former home because Sparty kept challenging the larger dog.
He will make sure that you are safe in your home by keeping watch out a front window and barking at “intruders”,which includes any activity in the street. He is an active dog; a fenced yard is a must so that he can play ball with his people every day; he loves to play ball. He also walks one mile each day without stopping; no sniffing every tree and bush for Sparty.
Sparty only has a foster mom in his foster home. In his former home he could become aggressive with the man of the house; if the husband got near Sparty’s food bowl, for example; so we cannot be sure that he will be ok with all men that he meets. We have not seen this food guarding in his foster home. Sparty is not a fan of smaller children either because he is not comfortable with the noisy, unpredictable behavior.
Sparty will stand on his hind legs when he needs to see over the babygate, for example; or when he wants his food or treat. He looks like a tiny polar bear when in this position and he can walk this way too. Companion and an actor.
A quiet home without too much activity or noise will be perfect for Sparty; he will reward you with loyalty and devotion.
