When Sparky first arrived at the end of October, he sure was scared. He didn't trust anything or anyone in this new environment, and he wasn't afraid to let you know that. 

We know better than anyone that the first few days after arrival here can be very taxing and confusing. We understand fully that it takes patience, and respect for space to build a lasting trust and form a relationship, something that many of the volunteers so eagerly stepped up to do, to help Sparky feel safe. 

So, although that first week was approached very slow, methodical and with caution, it wasn't long before Sparky began to blossom into this playful, friendly derpy character that EVERYONE at the rescue has come to love! He's so entertaining with his short little bow-legged body, eager to please and chase a toy, and just wants what we all want- and that's to feel SAFE. 

Sparky can and WILL warm up to the right people, those who will go that extra mile to build trust with him, recognizing his need to feel safe. And once he does- you'll have a loyal companion for the rest of his life!
