Sparky is a chow chow golden retriever mix, about 60lbs and we think about 3 years old. He was turned in by a family in South LA because they were moving, and despite the fact that he was pretty neglected Sparky is the most loving and gentle dog you will ever meet. His first love and full joy in life is any/every tennis/football/bouncy/really any kind of ball. He has an insatiable appetite for fetch and it is pretty entertaining to watch the variety of ways he tackles the ball. He loves children and would do very well in a family environment. He also gets along well with other non-aggressive medium-large size dogs, he does not do well with smaller dogs or cats though. He is completely house trained and is content even in small spaces. He rarely barks, loves to ride in the car, loves to be brushed (he sheds once a year only so no dog hair on furniture, etc!) and is a pure joy to be with. Heís very soulful, his presence is calming and very positive to be around. A very special dog indeed. Application, adoption fee and home check required. Thank you, I know Sparkyís forever home is out there, I canít wait to help him find it.
