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.

Please contact for more information about this dog. You can apply online by clicking on Application . Once your application is approved, we will schedule a meet and greet at one of our adoption events. 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.

NOTE: In our bios, we provide information based on our volunteer's experience with a particular dog; such as temperament, training, and ability to get along with others.

AARF is a 501(c)3 Non Profit, all breed, no kill organization. Our group is always in need of donations in order to continue to give the needed medical care to our rescues. Adoption fees do not begin to cover all of the medical costs. Any donation , no matter how small is a big help and is greatly appreciated. Please help us to continue to help them. Thank you.
