Sparkle

Shih Tzu x Miniature Schnauzer
2 years old - Long coat - Female


Sparkle is a 2 year old Shih Tzu-Schnauzer mix. She has a non-shedding coat that is an option for those who have allergies or simply want a dog who doesn't shed. She had to be shaved down and now her coat is growing in beautifully. She will require regular grooming. She was an owner surrender to our rescue from a home that had many many dogs and became overwhelmed and asked for help.

Sparkle has always lived with other dogs and does well with them. She has lived with big and little dogs. She is definitely one that can fit in with a group of dogs, one other dog or even be by herself. She is on the shy side initially with humans. She likes people who go slower with her initially and don't grab her up and expect her to be snuggling and cuddly right off. It's too much for her at first. Once she is yours, she follows you around the house, she wants to be with you and she's very much a velcro type of dog.

Sparkle is a quiet dog. She is not your typical barky Schnauzer. She's a more mellow, hang out type of dog.

Sparkle is a dog who will require a home that has had a dog in the last three years. She is a dog who if there are kids in the home they need to be over the age of 13.

**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)

**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.
