Sparky

About Sparky

Posting will be removed when this rescue is adopted. Please read the description in full. We may have other applications and review them in the order received. Sparky, this gentleman is approx 6 years old and loves life. We have become pretty smitten with this big boy at about 100 lbs. Due to a previous injury, he has some back end mobility problems which keep him from being able to go on long walks, hikes, and run like the wind, but he makes the most of it! He loves his shorter walks and playing his version of catch and most of all, sitting outside and getting fresh air. Sparky came from a home where he was outside all day, so he would love a yard for short breaks, in between being the biggest couch hog you’ve met! He walks well on a leash but with his size, does pull towards other dogs and humans he feels must touch noses or give pets to him. Given his previous injury, a home without children and dogs is best for him so that he doesn’t have to worry about being jumped on or moving the wrong way. He does like his kitty friends. We had Sparky’s back end x-ray’d and were thrilled to learn there are no other issues but are being proactive given his breed and earlier injury and have started him on supplements that will need to be continued in his new home. Sparky is definitely not immune to the nickname ‘German Shedder’, but we have been brushing him regularly. And along with his supplements, we have been helping improve his coat and bring the blizzard down to a snowfall. For an application, please visit our website.
