In a word, quirky would be the best way to describe this little rascal. He's kind of like the Eddie Haskell of dogs. Always up to something and ready to get into some fun shenanigans with his best bud! He may be small in stature, but his personality is larger than life. This guy is a character, that's for sure!
He may have a mischievous look in his eyes, but Spanky is really chill on the leash. While exploring the great outdoors, he likes to stay right by his human's side. He's very curious about his surroundings and is always ready for a fun adventure. Walking is a lot of fun, but what he most enjoys is lap time! This little dude wants to be in your lap more than anything. If you're looking for a dog that will shower you with affection, Spanky's your man. Once you pet his super soft brindle coat, you'll see that he is made for cuddling!
When he's not canoodling with his humans, he's happy to entertain himself with toys. You should see him tossing toys up in the air and flopping around like a fish out of water. Graceful, he is not-but he owns his clumsiness like a boss!
Like his alter ego, Eddie Haskell, Spanky is smart like a fox. He already mastered the kennel routine and he knows how to sit for treats. If you've got the yummy goodies, he'll gladly work on his behavioral skills. And with the free behavior assistance offered by APA, you can learn how to teach him all kinds of cool tricks.
We should also note that when you adopt a dog from APA, you are saving not one, but two lives - the life of the dog you're bringing into your home, and the next dog APA can save in the adopted dog's place.
