SPARKY-Male 11-year old Husky/Shepherd Mix looking for his forever retirement home

Sparky’s Story

“Hello my name is Sparky. I am an 11 year old husky/Shepard mix. 


I have a sad tale with a possible happy-ending! 


On 6/29/22, I was found in La Mirada, CA by a nice lady who tried three times to capture me. I was scared of her and

every other human who was trying to capture me because I had been on my own running the street for more than

three days.  She turned out to be a very nice lady. 


She took me to the doctors because my paws were hurting me. Turns out I just wore my paw pads out after all the

days alone on the hot pavement. I think cost her a lot of money because she kept telling me I was “lucky I was

as cute” over and over again. 🫢


The nice lady found my owner of 11 years. It’s the only home I have ever known. It breaks my heart to say but my

owner doesn’t want me back 😢. Apparently, my owner can not take care me anymore and can’t keep me from

getting out.  I feel sad, but those fireworks just scared me so bad. 


Thankfully, the nice lady is letting me stay with her temporarily instead of being in a loud and scary shelter.

Old guys like me don’t last long at the shelter.


I am happy not be in the shelter but NOW I want to find my forever home - is that with you and your family?

Please help keep me out of the shelter. 


I am a good boy. I promise. I just need lots love and attention. I am very nervous and anxious when you first

meet me but with TIME and PATIENCE I will warm up to you and then become your shadow. I don’t like to

be left alone right now but the nice lady is working on that with me. 


I am extremely smart - I should have been named Einstein or Houdini! I guess that’s the Husky in me.   I love pets

and cuddles after I settle in with you. I just learned how to play and I love it!   I get along great with other dogs big

or small. I am not sure how I feel about cats yet. 


I am neutered and  fully vaccinated as of 7/17/22.   My doggie doctor said I have no major health issues or abnormalities. 


Contact the lady who is caring for me if you want to meet me?! Her name is Stephanie Rigoli. 562-477-0061
