PLEASE READ ENTIRE BIO

Sparkee is an adorable 6 month old 15 lbs Dachshund/Chihuahua mix puppy, (full grown could be 20-25lb). For sure, this little guy is ALL puppy! Puppies are tons of fun but do require ALOT of work and training on your family’s part to be the best pup he can be! He needs love, attention and lots of consistency especially for housebreaking! His little bladder can’t hold it all day so please make sure you can commit to the puppy not being left alone for long periods of time. If that’s not possible, please consider one of our adult dogs which might be better suited for your lifestyle!

He loves leash walks, he does get a little protective at first if we see other pups on the walk. He would love to have a human or 2 (or more) for his new family, he also would like to have a doggie or 2 either bigger or similar size, and young in his new home, just as long as they can play, play, play! If you don’t already have another pup in the home, that would be ok, but you MUST be very active as he is quite the energizer bunny when it comes to attention and playtime! If you have kids they should be at least 8+ we think that would be ok. He loves to snuggle after playing, and he still has his puppy teeth and needs toys that he can chew on, soft and hard, kong etc. He would need a single family home preferably with a secure fenced in yard so he can have a place to run and burn some of his puppy energy off. An active family that would take him places would be great also.

He is mostly house trained, but still being a puppy, he needs to get out often and of course he is going to need to get into a routine in his new home, but he is getting there! He is in a foster home with other pups and is learning quickly how to be a “good boy”.

Sparkee has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and is on heartworm and flea prevention. Might he be the guy for you? Please visit www.viprescue.org to fill out an adoption application. Love and tail wags!!!! Sparkee

Adoption Requirements: You must be a Florida resident, and be at least 25 years of age to adopt. To qualify for adoption, all of the pets in your home must be spayed or neutered, be current on all vaccines, preventatives, and have received consistent veterinary care. If you’ve had more than one Vet in the past 3 years, please provide all the names and number for each vet. This breed typically lives 15-18 years, so please keep that lifespan in mind, as your age should be appropriate for the pets estimated lifespan.

All of us at VIP Rescue are Volunteers, with families, jobs and pets of our own, so please be kind and patient. We select the most fitting application for the dog, not necessarily the timeliest adoption application. Please make sure to read the entire bio on the pet you’re interested in before applying to adopt to make sure you meet the pets needs. Thank you for thinking rescue.
