Meet Sparky my best friend. I have sparky since he was 1 year old. He is a very loyal dog and a protection dog at his best. He will cuddle and love you 1 on 1 but he wont let anyone near you on command. Great guard dog can be your indoor or outdoor dog. Since we moved he is primarily outdoors with his own kiddie pool but in extreme heat of course we bring him indoors and yes he is house trained. This is very difficult for me to do as he has been by my side through thick and thin. He does great with Livestock for the most part but loves to play with the horses. In my mind he is not a kid dog because he is so protective. I have tried to overcome this with him but I do not feel comfortable. He needs someone who can work with him one on one and love the fact he is so protective and needs a watch dog. He does need a yard as he is use to being free to run our property. Only serious considerations please. I'm not asking for any money I'm asking for a loving home. I will not consider giving him away if you have little ones at home. Thanks for considering my Sparky boy. Guaranteed to make someone happy and will give you unlimited partnership and love in return.
