   Leave a bone for Sparky Embers

He was Braveheart at the shelter and then Bravo at the rescue. I just wanted something more lighthearted and comical; Smoky, Toasty, Blaze, or Fenix would have worked as well.

Being loved on and petted.

Baths! I've never seen a dog try to climb out of the sink so fast!

Favorite Toy:
He's not really interested in squeakies, but he was going to town on a hoof and likes cow ears, too.

Favorite Food:
So far, he hasn't turned his nose up to anything. Well, he finally ate a carrot today.

Favorite Walk:
We haven't walked on a leash yet. That may take some learning.

Best Tricks:
Looking cute and adorable.

Arrival Story:
Almost a year and a half ago, there was a house fire in Brenham, with the owner not making it out. The next morning, workers found Sparky underneath debris. He was badly burned on his right rear leg and flank. He lingered at a shelter for several days without treatment. Finally, a kindhearted woman rescued him. After he recovered from his burns, they found out he was heartworm positive! I found him on, where his profile had been on display for three months with no inquiries. Thank you, Bonnie, for saving my life!

At best guess, Sparky is a Schipper-Chi. He's pretty small and has those buggy eyes like a Chihuahua, but the build and coarse fur of a Schipperke. Sparky has scarring where he was burned and has no fur in that area. Poor little guy, he's just a tiny thing, though he could stand to lose 1/2-1 pound. We're working on the diet, but it's so hard not to give the cutie pie treats! Wow, does this little guy snore! And it's regular, too, and schnorrgely! Papa says he looks like a Licorice Yoda...cute as a button, Sparky Embers is, hmmm.

Forums Motto:
From the flames, a legend is born.
