Dog of the Day: Sparky from Arizona Humane Society!
Big dogs like Sparky are obviously not allowed in apartments so his family brought him to the Arizona Humane Society to find a new home. Although Sparky is homeless, he doesnâ€™t let it get the best of him.
He continues to have a happy-go-lucky outlook on life and he is enthusiastic about finding a new forever friend. As he approaches the age of three, this handsome Labrador mix lives life to the fullest, and he is always ready for a fun adventure.
Sparky is best described as a big goof ball. He is a bit clumsy, and it is hilarious to watch this energetic pooch gallop around the yard awkwardly. On the other hand, when he is playing fetch he is a bit more serious, and like a great athlete he will race across the yard to chase the tennis ball.
His comical personality will bring a smile to everyoneâ€™s face. He is a big lover who will greet everyone with a rapid tail wag and plenty of sloppy kisses. Although he is a large dog, he never misses a chance to crawl into someoneâ€™s lap, and if there is room on the couch you can bet that Sparky will join you for some television in the evening.
Sparky is already housetrained, and he is a perfect gentleman in the house. He is very well-behaved indoors, but when he is allowed outside to play he is very rambunctious. He will need a large and secure yard to romp around in, and plenty of exercise to keep him content.
Sparky is a boundless pup, and he would love to find a home with children who are at least 12-years-old that will devote a few hours each day to play with him. He may be to rowdy for small children.
He is very excited to meet other dogs, but he may be â€œtoo much dogâ€ for some canines so a dog introduction is required to ensure that your dog feels comfortable around Sparky. He hasnâ€™t discovered felines yet, and he will need a slow introduction to cats.
You can adopt Sparky NOW at the Arizona Humane Societyâ€™s Nina Mason Pulliam Campus for Compassion, 1521 West Dobbins Road in Phoenix. His adoption fee is just $35 because he is a member of our Lonely Hearts club.
