Sparten is such a cutie but he is still a timid little pup. He is going to need someone with a lot of patience. He, and his sister, Stella, are parvo survivors which is awesome. He will need to go into a home with another dog. He really likes to go out and play chase in the backyard with his sister. He will need a home with a yard. I don't think an apartment will work for either of them. If he can't go outside to play they will run up and down the stairs to run their energy off. He loves to give kisses and he will sit in your lap for short periods of time. We are working on socialization and we are about half way to getting potty training done. He is crate trained and know how to sit and shake hands. With proper introduction he gets along with other dogs. It is also recommended he go to a family with kids 10 years old or older. He jumps a lot and even though he is small to medium in size he can still knock you over if you are not paying attention.

Thank you for considering a rescue!
The adoption fee includes vaccinations, Bordetella, de-worming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is a an additional $12.99 fee for Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip.
Puppies cannot be adopted outside of the Houston area until they are spay/neutered after they are 4 months old. It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.
