Sparky is the ultimate survivor. This poor boy entered APA! malnourished with Parvovirus, which is unusual for an adult to get. Thankfully, he survived and is doing well!
He LOVES people and is very calm. He is the perfect dog for a low maintenance owner. Sparky walks (or now prances) nicely on a leash and entertains himself when you are busy doing your people work. He is low-energy which is nice when it's too hot to do much of anything outside.
Sparky is a beefcake that is a real head turner, too, with his gorgeous amber brown eyes that stare soulfully at you as you pet him. He's got a long memory and remembers the people who have been so kind to him, giving them excited kisses, when he sees them again after weeks of absence.
This boy is a charmer in every sense of the word. Meet him today!
