Meet Sparky

Sparky has transformed into an amazing, handsome dog. He came to us practically on his death bed being starved in a crate in an empty parking lot in DC.  When he first arrived to us his age was unknown, anywhere from a puppy to 7 years old. Now that he feels better and is healthy, he shows more signs of a younger dog.  Sparky has overcome so much! During his recovery he ate some thing he shouldn't have and had to have obstruction surgery! Then, recently he was diagnosed with anal carcinoma and a partially torn ACL.  Two surgeries later to remove the cancer he's got a clean bill of heath! We are so happy for Sparky...we should start calling him 'Super' Sparky! He's on strict rest for several weeks to get that ACL healed.  Can you believe this boy's luck!  Sparky just has one more hurdle to overcome before being able to live a long, healthy, happy life.  What's that? He needs to find his very own forever home! Sparky is a young, happy, playful, goofy, adorable, boy who loves his foster family and will make a lucky family out there complete!
 
All in all, Sparky is a great boy who wants to please you and be there for you no matter what. He wants someone that is home more than they are gone, that has the time and patience to work on teaching him manners and have fun with him.  Training either in the home or a group would be terrific for Sparky. He's basically like a gigantic puppy! It's so sad, he's never had a home, and no one to love him and teach him. He deserves the security and love of his own family.  He needs to continue with the basics as well as the advanced training. With a little time, patience and love Sparky will be that dog that people say was the 'one' 'the best dog ever'.

About American Bulldog Rescue - MD Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to rescuing and finding forever homes for bull breed dogs in need. American Bulldog Rescue is not a shelter, but an all-volunteer group where the dogs receive loving care in a network of dedicated foster homes until the time when their forever family is found.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoption events will be posted on our Facebook page. Our foster dogs live in homes with our volunteers. We do not have a facility where interested people can visit the dogs. If you are interested in meeting any of our dogs, please submit an adoption application available on our website.

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt one of our love-a-bull dogs, you must submit an application on our website at www.americanbulldogrescue.org. Applications must meet minimum requirements (policies are listed our site). Applicants have their vet and personal references checked . The next step is a home visit by one of our volunteers. Finally, the applicant will be put in touch with the foster family to arrange to meet the dog! If a happy match is made, the applicants sign an adoption contract and provide an adoption donation. The donation is usually $400.
