Here's Sparks writeup on http://www.vadsr.org/index.htm
"Hi! My name is Sparks (a k a Sparky or Sparkles) I'm about 3 years old and a big healthy boy. Check out my photos; aren't I cute?
My foster Mom says that I'm just a big mush who loves to cuddle and have my belly (& all other parts) rubbed. I love to give big kisses and to play fetch with just about anything! I do love to play with (& eat) tennis balls, have a good appetite, but don't ever steal any food from my step-brother's bowl.
I do have a tendency to bark at startling noises, mostly in the kitchen (microwave, garbage disposal) and love to converse with the standard poodle that lives behind us frequently. I also like to play hide-and-seek in the bushes, when my Mom let's us play in her fenced-in yard.
I'm good with other dogs (love to play with my sheltie playmate) and kids, walk well on a leash and am housebroken. I'm not crate trained at this time, as I like to sleep w/ my Mom (or nearby) and my activities are not restricted.
Why don't you come and see me and I promise to steal your heart!"
I emailed his foster Mom and it appears Sparks still has the same quirks. The rescue director told me that his problems would be an easy fix, Ha! Looks like he is more of a challenge then they thought. His foster Mom even offered to bring him back to me. I wish I could, but I don't have the time or experience to fix his quirks. I hope they can make some progress with him so that he isn't brought back to rescue again by a family that can't handle him. If not for these few quirks, Sparks would be such an excellent dog.
