Welcome Sparky to Lucky Dog! Sparky is a 10yr old Miniature Pinscher mix weighing 16lbs. Sparky came from a Wisconsin shelter where he was having a hard time. He was very overwhelmed by the noise and barking that he became very withdrawn. Some dogs just do very poorly in a shelter environment. Now that Sparky is with Lucky Dog Rescue in a foster home he is starting to relax and return to his sweet and loving self. He can be anxious around new people but once he knows he is safe and loved he is an absolute sweetheart. He is a fairly independent guy too that isn’t under foot. Sparky will seek out some snuggles, and petting and does sleep on the floor by his foster mom. He does well with the other dogs in the home and has tested well with cats. When playing with Sparky you would never know he is 10. He is fun and energetic. He likes going on walks. He is very healthy and will hopefully have many years left. Sparky would do best in a home with older children or no children as constant running and loud noises do make him anxious. His foster home has 11yr old twins and he does very well with them. Sparky is crate trained and mostly housetrained. He will need assistance reestablishing housetraining after being in a shelter environment. Consistency is the key! Like all min pins and small terrier breeds it’s important he is never left off leash or allowed to sneak out of the house. He is not a barker, digger or chewer. When he isn’t playing with a toy or chewing on an antler, Sparky is very laid back and relaxed. He loves to snuggle up on the couch with you. He would be a great addition to any calm home. Sparky’s adoption fee includes all vaccinations (dhlpp, rabies, bordetella),microchip with lifetime registration to the rescue, spay, 4dx test (heartworm and 3 tick borne illnesses), 6 month of heartworm prevention, full health exam, health certificate, collar, harness and leash. Sparky is fostered in Fond du lac, WI. To apply please visit www.luckydoggyrescue.org.
