Sparky's Story...
UPDATED BIO 09/05/2011: Surprise! It’s me – Sparky. I am 10 years old and weigh 6.1 lb. I'm a little guy, you could say; I'm being fostered in Punta Gorda, FL. Well, here I sit - at my foster parents house……just waiting, waiting, waiting for somebody to come along and see how cute I am and wanna adopt me! I know you are out there, and I am waiting patiently until you (my forever family) comes for me.

I am a good boy, who is totally lovable. I love to give kisses, sleeping under blankets, running and playing with my ball. But I can only play when I am by myself, because FM says I can get very rough. Geesh. After all, it is MY ball! So I guess you could say I don't share very well. I do not mind all the animals in the house; you see, the other foster dogs that live here are Davie, Lindie, baby Kourtney. Oh! I forgot the resident cat, Cleo - she is just silly. I would love a fenced -n backyard where I could run and play, but that is not necessary. I take a walk every day, and I tell FM and FD when I have to go potty – aren’t I a smart boy? Oh, wait……I AM smart, but sometimes I do have accidents. So I am better if I wear a bellyband - that way, I won't accidently piddle in the house.

I hope you come soon.

Love ya,

Sparky

UPDATED BIO 07/29/2011: It's me – Sparky. I am 10 years old and weigh 6.1# - I'm a little guy, you could say; I'm being fostered in Punta Gorda, FL. I am still here in Foster Mom's house. It’s great, and FM and FD are so wonderful to me, but all my foster sisters are being adopted to their forever homes – but I’m still here…..my feelings are a little hurt – why am I still here? I miss all my foster sister…., I am good with other dogs and cats, too. Resident Cat and I are buddies. I like to cuddle and be scratched, go on long walks and meet the neighbors. Paying fetch with my favorite ball is the best thing in the whole world, so a yard for me to play fetch in would be awesome, but it’s not a deal-breaker, as long as you will take me on long walks a couple of times a day. Oh! And play my favorite game of ball with me. I am just waiting to be loved, and I hope you come to get me soon.

UPDATED BIO 05/12/2011: Sparky is 10 years old and weighs 6.1#, though he looks and acts MUCH younger! He is being fostered in Punta Gorda, FL. In a conversation earlier, here’s what Sparky had to say for himself…………

Hi everyone! It's me - Sparky. Man, it’s been a busy couple months. I’ve sat by the window and have seen so many of my foster sisters come and go, and I keep hoping I am next to get my forever home. Could it be you? Foster Mom says I am almost housetrained - she takes the belly band off a little more each day. Yippee........ I now go to the front door when I have to potty. I’m pretty smart, huh? Yeah, yeah, I know - I’m really smart - at least that’s what FM tells me every day. She also tells me that I’m a total gentleman. I take care of all the foster sisters I have…I look after them and make sure they are safe. My one foster sister is 15 years old and FM is her real mom, but I still have to help cause she can't see, and I make sure she doesn't run into the wall. Right now I have some tummy troubles, and FM gives me some medicine, and I take it like a good boy, no fussing at all. See, I told you I was smart – and very good. Well, FM is telling me that I have to get ready for a photo shoot? Are you kiddin’ me? Stay tuned……..

UPDATED BIO 02/25/2011: Sparky is a sweet & spunky little guy. He is 10 years old and weighs 6.1#, though he looks and acts MUCH younger! He is being fostered in Punta Gorda, FL. Now that Sparky has been vetted, he had a whole lot to say about the vetting situation and other important things….

Hi Everyone! Sparky here with today’s highlights on my life. I made it through the vet visits like a champ. My teeth are clean and sparkly and I was also neutered (umm, not too sure what happened there?!) And that growth thing I told ya’ll about earlier – the vet had to remove it. They had to shave my side, so I look kinda goofy! All vaccinations are up-to-date, and I am soooo ready for my furever home. Foster Mom says I am the most loveable little boy, and that I have totally perfect manners when it comes to the other furkids in the house. Heck, I even like kitties. I am still in belly bands, because I have some bad habits in the housetraining department. Foster Mom is working with me on it, though….it’s like - I need to go potty a lot during the day, so I need to be let out lots and go for lotsa walks; otherwise I have accidents. I love to cuddle - a LOT, and sleep in my very own special crate. Sometimes I even let my foster sisters share my crate, hey, I may be ‘middle-aged’, but I still like the girlies! I am such a gentleman, though, and I think that’s why they like to snuggle with me (wink, wink!) I would be very happy in a home with older kids, and a backyard would really be cool because I love playing ball. Since I have to go potty a lot, it would be even cooler to have someone home during the day to keep me company. Could this be you? Love, Sparky

INITIAL BIO 02/07/2011: Sparky is a sweet and spunky little 10 year ld 6.1 lb guy (though he looks and acts MUCH younger!). He is being fostered in Punta Gorda. He had this to say:

"Hi Everyone I am Sparky! I had a great family, but I will be honest..... I went potty in the house.... So they gave me up. I am not sure why, but things at foster mom and foster dad's is different. Maybe because I am surrounded by girls and I want to behave? You think? Foster Mom has me in a belly band, but she will be the first one to say I have not gone pee pee in my pants. I am only going outside like a good boy. Foster sister Penny had the same problem and she is also doing really well with no accidents. Maybe we help each other! :)

Yesterday we both went to the dogtor. I am a healthy little guy, but I need my teeth cleaned. They are really painful, and I may lose a few. I also need something called a neuter. Yikes! My bloodwork came back fine but I do have a urinary tract infection; so, I am on medication for that and expect it to clear up right away! (between clearing up the UTI and getting a neuter, I will be the best behaved little guy in your home! Just wait!) Yesterday I spent the whole day with foster dad because foster mom works, and I was so good. We snuggled while he read something called a newspaper. All of us dogs took a nap on top of foster dad. So far I like it here, but I know I will like your forever home too. What do you think? Could I be your new pal? xoxo - Sparky
p.s. I have a foster sister cat, and I like her too. Or should I say she likes me.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sparky, a Punta Gorda Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier for sale in Punta Gorda, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Punta Gorda.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Punta Gorda already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Punta Gorda breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier breeders who help with Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Punta Gorda paves the way for another one to be saved.
