Sweet and spirited Spanky is an endearing blend of affectionate and active.
Once his foster mom earned his trust, she earned his loyalty and love. Despite his size, Spanky sees himself as a lap dog, calmly snuggling with her and being petted and held although he does enjoy spending time on his own.
Always curious and always up for adventure, he gets along well with other dogs, enjoys running in the park (he’s excellent off leash), pulling on rope, playing with – and tearing apart – chew toys and going for car rides with his head out the window.
Motivated by food and treats and a fondness for blueberries, he knows “come” and “sit”, isn’t a fan of being wiped down or cleaned, and barks at passersby outside the backyard. He also has a tendency to resource guard around his doggy foster brother, and prefers to sniff new people before they pet him.
For these reasons, Spanky is best suited to a loving home with patient adopters who will earn his trust, continue his socialization and complete his doggy education in return for his enduring loyalty and love.
Spanky is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. To meet or adopt Spanky, fill out an application and a volunteer will contact you shortly.
