Sparky is new to our rescue. He comes from Ohio, and is 6.5 years old. We do not have much history on him. We know that he belonged to an older couple and for the last few years he was tied up outside. Sparky is gentle, easygoing and mellow. He is very good with his foster doggie siblings, and he's fine with cats! He loves playing with stuffed toys and taking walks. He will not jump on furniture. He was thrilled to be invited onto the big bed with the other dogs, probably for the first time ever. Having lived outside he is not housebroken, this is a work in progress.He loves to give kisses and rides well in the car.Sparky will make someone a very loving companion. Since he has been around adults his whole life, we recommend a home with older children.
