Tiny body and a big attitude- his adorable underbite says it all! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Sparky, a 4 years old Chihuahua mix from Wethersfield, Connecticut. This feisty little fella is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm negative, and microchipped. Sparky is housetrained, good with older children as well as cats and dogs that share the same friendly temperament.

Sparky’s Tale

When his previous owners were unable to care for him they surrendered Sparky to the shelter, and now he’s looking for a furever family to shower with love. Once he got the attention and the care he needed, this pooch quickly blossomed. Sparky is a loving pooch that has a big personality and makes fast friends with anyone he meets. Like most Chihuahuas, he’s also all bark, no bite- he also really loves the sound of his voice so if you have cranky neighbors, have that in mind.

This pooch might be small but don’t let that fool you- Sparky is full of energy and will love to play and go on walks with you. Of course, as soon as belly rubs and snuggles are in play, he’ll much prefer cuddling and sitting in your lap over anything else, as he’s very sweet and affectionate. Housebroken and crate trained, Sparky knows how to behave inside and won’t mind spending time in a crate while you’re away: in fact, he sees his crate as a safe place. When it comes to Sparky’s choice of roommates, his friendliness isn’t reserved only for his special human. He does well with other dogs as long as they are calm and relaxed and understand his quirks, and he’s even done well on his brief meetings with felines. As for children, Sparky will make a great companion to older children that are respectful as he doesn’t appreciate being picked up and handled unless he wants it.

In case that Sparky stole your heart (as he probably did), contact One More Dog Rescue for more information on how to adopt him.
