Please meet sweet Sparkle, the Disney Dog!  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 not a fan of her crate, but 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.  Even though Sparkle does not like to be locked up in a crate, she does enjoy sleeping in hers 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.  She is not a cat person, so no cats or other small animals!   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 will follow them if she is awarded with treats. She walks great on a leash as well.  What a great girl!   If you are interested in adopting this sweet girl, please contact us at To read about Scout's Honor's adoption procedures or to fill out an application for Sparkle, please visit our website at Meet our sweet, lovable senior girl Sparkle. Don’t be fooled by “senior” this girl still has plenty of energy, love and spunk to last a long, long time.  Sparkle has been with us a long time, not because she is ever anything less than a total lovebug, but because she came to us with extreme thunderphobia. And we will tell you all about the beginning if you are truly interested, but nowadays her foster has a plan that seems to be working. On stormy days Sparkle either goes to doggie daycare or her mom works from home. The key is too not leave her alone during storms. Sparkle LOVES other dogs and would do best in a home with a canine sibling. She loves kids too and has even learned to live with a cat. Sparkle is now about 9-10 years old, about 45-50 pounds and is a Dalmatian, retriever mix. She loves toys and playing fetch. She hates crates and being confined but is a good girl left out in the house (without storms ) Sparkle is up to date on vaccines, spayed and microchipped.  If you are interested in adopting this sweet senior girl just fill out the application and we will be in touch soon.
