Sparky is an 11 month old, black/white/tan male who is neutered, heartworm tested, microchipped and up to date on shots. He came to us from a shelter south of Chicago. His tale is a sad one and we are attempting to change that. He did extremely well for grooming, I am sure his first. His apprehension of new people has diminished sharply. He has an undocked tail which he wags merrily most of the time. He loves to go outside with me. He is crate trained and doing very well on his housetraining. He is the dominate puppy in the litter but loves to be with other dogs. He probably would not do well in a home with another alpha male but would do well with a non dominant dog. I am hoping for a wonderful home for this loving, happy boy with someone who has a bit of patience as he may be shy at first. Within a week or two he will treat you like you are the best master in the world. Sparky is a smart dog, he has learned so much in a short time. He knows he has a name and comes when called. He is a sweet puppy who deserves a loving family.
