SparkleDalmatian / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat) • Female • Adult • Medium
Please meet sweet Sparkle!
Sparkle is a retriever/Dalmatian mix, and she is just precious. We call her the Disney Dog because she has the most beautiful eye liner and expressive eyes, which make her look like one of the 101 Dalmatians. Sparkle is such a sweet girl and just loves her people and other dogs. Sparkle is housetrained. She is a good girl when left alone in the house. A lot of times, Sparkle's foster mom will find her waiting by the window when she comes home. When her foster mom is home, Sparkle will nudge the back door when she needs to go potty. She does enjoy sleeping in her crate when the door is left open. Many nights, she will go to bed in her foster mom’s bedroom and end up sleeping in her crate in the dining room. Sparkle is also wonderful with kids. She is so gentle around them and even listens to their commands. Sparkle also gets along with her 4-legged foster siblings and LOVES to play with them.
Sparkle has a lot of energy when appropriate and LOVES to run. She does have a bit of thunderphobia, but we are working on desensitizing her to that. She would do well in a home with kids and/or other dogs. She likes the activity and loves nothing more than to lie next to you and cuddle. She knows when it's time to play versus when it's time to just hang out in the house and be calm.
Sparkle also LOVES (she loves a lot of things!) squeaky toys and enjoys playing with them a lot. She also enjoys a short game of fetch. She will bring the object to you, and if you ask for it, she will let it go. She will do this about 4 or 5 times, and then she just prefers to chew on the toy. So cute! Sparkle knows basic commands and walks great on a leash as well. What a great girl!
