Sparkey is the cutest senior guy with the most handsome underbite and occasional tongue roll.

He finds himself in rescue after his sole owner passed away unexpectedly; a relative asked if we could help with this senior boy so of course we said yes!!!

Sparkey is fairly active for a senior guy. He likes his morning walks and playing with his little toys.

He is house trained and lets you know when he needs to go out. He walks well on the harness/leash.

He does well with most people, but you can tell that he is used to having a quieter home. He tolerates other dogs but prefers to be the boss and get all the treats and attention.

You may notice from Sparkey’s photos that he is a well fed boy. Sparkey does need to watch his calorie intake to ensure that he has a long and happy life. He is working on this in his foster home, and Sparkey will be looking for a forever owner who will help him to meet his weight management goals.

Sparkey has been diagnosed with immune mediated hemolytic anemia - he is stable at present and has been for quite some time - this diagnosis may require vet visits for steroids etc. For more info:

IMPORTANT INFORMATION - 

Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.  

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.

Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
