Sparky is a lovely boxer/cattle dog mix with a short tail, about 55 lbs, 3 years old, neutered and current on vaccines.

He recently came into our rescue after being tied in a backyard for all of his 3 years, was unmanageable, and the owners no longer wanted him.
At his new foster home, he is able to run and play with other dogs and to interact with people - finally!

He was evaluated by a certified trainer on August 28th and these were her observations of him:  he will need an intermediate experienced owner, he is high energy, he has a good attitude and is willing to work for treats (positive reinforcement), he loves attention and is a very willing boy, he does well on a front attachment harness, has no body sensitivity or trigger points, and would be a good family dog. He is about 30% trained on sit and is learning come on the leash. The older grandchildren in his foster family play fetch with him. He basically has had no training, so will need work, but the trainer believes him to be a good dog.
