SPARKY before his groom!
White and Apricot
7 years old
SPARKY is a sweet dog and very affectionate once he warms up to you. He jumps up and down to greet you when you come home and gets very excited about car rides-he loves them! SPARKY is completely house trained, has no resource guarding issues and is not a chewer. He's fine with other dogs-he'll either ignore them or play with them depending on the dog. The best thing about SPARKY is that he will play ball endlessly just like a puppy!
Besides all of these endearing qualities, SPARKY has a real issue that must be addressed by his new owner. He has fear aggression. Whatever experience he had in his past has left him fearful of new things and people which is manifested by aggressive behavior towards strangers and sometimes people he knows. But all is not hopeless! We have done some limited training with SPARKY addressing this behavior and have seen real progress and positive results. It has been enough to know that training will be effective but only if continued and practiced daily. This will take a great amount of patience and discipline from SPARKY'S owner. SPARKY is a very sweet and loving dog at heart and with the right owner will learn to trust and love again. He definitely has it in him-we have seen it!❤️
No apartments. No kids or teenagers. Quiet home only.
