Adopt Sparky, large black lab mix needs new home - long island ny

Sparky is a 5 year old female black lab and St. bernard mix.  She
weighs 95 pounds and is spayed.  She has all her vaccinations and is
heart-worm free.  She is a great dog.  She is very smart, loving,
affectionate, and an extremely loyal companion.
Her ideal home is someone who works from home, someone who is
Retired or someone who is usually home for at least half the day. 
She is great for a small family and is great with kids once she gets
adjusted.  Her new home should not have other pets.  She doesn't
walk well on a leash so needs home with yard.
Sparky's new owner should be an experienced dog owner. 
Important things to know:
Sparky spent the first year of her life in a shelter and is
fearful and intimidated when meeting new people. 
When she is meeting new people it is very important not to approach
She is good with kids but needs time to warm up to them and (like every dog) should
always be supervised.
She is on medication for separation anxiety and needs TLC.

Sparky is the sweetest dog and will be happy to lay next to you
while watching TV, working, or  doing housework.  She is lazy and
loves to snuggle up next to you but also enjoys running around in
the backyard and playing with her bones.  She loves food and has little
interest in dog toys.  However she loves working on getting treats
or peanut butter out of the rubber kong toy.  She will make you smile
and brighten up your day just by keeping you company!!!
If you are interested in adopting Sparky, please email for an adoption application.  All applicants will be screened and a home check is required.
