This cute pooch didn’t have the best start in life- but he’s hoping his luck will turn around! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Sparrow, a 3 years old Pomeranian mix from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Sparrow is vaccinated, neutered, leash trained and crate trained. He needs help with his socialization but gets along OK with easy-going dogs and older, considerate children.

Sparrow’s Tale

Before he ended up in Pennsylvania rescue, Sparrow was to be euthanized in a NY shelter. His time in the sheltered left him deeply traumatized, and sadly, these emotional wounds are still healing. Sparrow is still scared of strangers and it takes some time for him to warm up to new people. However, once he is comfortable around you, you’ll get to see his fun, quirky side- Sparrow is a charming little fella!

As an energetic little dog, Sparrow would do best in an active home, where he would get to go on walks and be included in his family’s adventures. He is a loving pooch that likes to be a part of everything you do! If there are other dogs in your home, Sparrow will likely make fast friends- as long as they’re friendly and laid-back. Older kids are OK as well, but only if they are considerate and able to understand that this little guy is still timid and the socialization process hast to be on his own terms.

Sparrow is leash trained, knows basic commands, and is crate trained. However, he’s still working with his fosters on his house training, so expect to have to work a little with him, but don’t worry- he’s a stellar student. Sparrow might have a lot of quirks, but it’s all owing to his ruff past- with time and patience, he will blossom.

If you are willing to help Sparrow reach his potential, you will have a fantastic companion and a best friend for life. For more information about this cute little guy and how to adopt him, contact Pawsitively Pom Rescue Inc.
