In Pilot, Texas a two-year-old terrier named Sparky continues to be overlooked. Perhaps it is because this boy is deaf, but so what? He loves children and gets along fine with other dogs. Still – for the last six-months, volunteers and staff members at the All American Dogs Animal Shelter have had no luck finding Sparky a home.
This adorable little guy, weighing no more than 25 pounds has been in the shelter since February. Tragically the population of shelter pets has exploded to nearly 70 dogs and the shelter, who takes care of 17 local towns has become overcrowded.
“He is neutered, microchipped, heartworm tested (negative) and fully vetted,” reports the organization’s description of Facebook. He LOVES kids and other dogs. He cannot be left in a yard alone or he will try to escape. He must have another dog or human with him. He loves companionship of any kind.”
In addition, Sparky has his talents as can be seen by his desperate attempt to climb out of his shelter enclosure.
“He is very smart and a volunteer worked with him on agility training and thrived. He will chase cats so he does not need to go to a home with cats. Time is of the essence now.”
