"Spartacus is an adorable, intelligent, 7-year-old, healthy, 55-lb, German Sheppard/Blue Heeler mix residing in Colorado Springs who needs a new home. Up-to-date on all of his shots, neutered and house broken, Spartacus has been our son and only child for 7 years. It breaks our heart to say goodbye to our little pup, but sometimes life throws us a curve ball or two and consequently, Spartacus has had to endure a separation between his mom and dad and now an impending divorce. Along with the divorce, his mom (me) is moving to India in a month and his dad (my ex) has a new job that requires him to travel every week. As much as we hate to say goodbye to our little love bug; Spartacus deserves to be in a home with parents that can provide him with a lot of love and care, something we can no longer do.
Ideally, Spartacus would be a great companion to any singles out there or a couple with older children or no children at all. Especially good for single women, b/c he's very protective of and loyal to his owners (the many years I lived alone while my ex was in Iraq, it made me feel very safe to have Spartacus around). On the other hand, Spartacus can also live with children 4 and older as long as it's understood by the kids what Spartacus' boundaries are as a dog (i.e. no tail pulling, firm grasping, etc.) I'm a nanny and have had the little ones (4 and 8) I take care of play with Spartacus on a regular basis, you just need to communicate to the children why it's important to 'be gentle.' Spartacus is seriously a GREAT dog.
He's got such a unique personality, and as strange as this may sound, when you look into those big brown eyes of his and see those big ears he's yet to grown into, you can truly see this little being's soul which is made of pure gold. It's heart- warming. Oh, and I will forewarn you, Spartacus is fully aware of just how cute he is and will use it to his utmost advantage to get access onto the bed, the couch and to any extra scraps of bacon you just cooked for breakfast. ;-)
In reality, Spartacus is a very chilled out, low-maintenance dog that gets along with other dogs. Spartacus believes he's human. ;-P He's just downright awesome and adoptable. He's a great cuddler on the couch and a great partner in crime when embarking on any outdoor adventure."
