My story

My story

Meet Sparkle, the energetic cutie with pretty hair. Most people’s first impression of Sparkle is “Wow! Is she a wolf?” Yes, she can “woof!” but not a wolf. Sparkle is definitely a lovely, yet super friendly dogie! But she’s not that energetic at the very beginning, it took a while to make Sparkle sparkle again. In 2017, Sparkle was rescued from the street during a rainy season, and was moved to PACK eventually. At that time, Sparkle was a bag of bones, all soaked with panic in her eyes. Somehow Sparkle lost her tail (or she was born without a tail), and nobody knows why. Actually, without a tail making her special and unique out of hundreds of dogs at PACK.

Sparkle

Personality

Outgoing, high-spirited, and playful. Sparkle sometimes looks cool but she’s actually very lively and clingy, she usually runs and almost flies towards you to show how much she loves you. She’s always aiming to catch all your attention and care. Fun fact about Sparkle: She loves human over dog, and she prefers girl.  Sparkle is companionable, maybe a bit passionate…she plays pretty tricks to compete for your attention, and she gives airplane ears when she gets scolded, you literally can’t say no to this girl! Oh, please keep in mind, Sparkle is a big hug lover!

My Behavior

My Behavior

First of all, Sparkle is outgoing and sensitive, she keeps her distance when bossy people are around. She gets nervous and hides when she’s in a new environment. Secondly, Sparkle cares about people’s attention on her, she pushed other dogs away when they attempt to compete for people’s attention. Sometimes, Sparkle is being affectionate and looks for you to accompany her, feed her using your hands! Lastly, she doesn’t eat when she feels down, she woofs when she feels lonely or being left. For Sparkle, care and love are more important than food.

My Behavior

1

Tolerance Levels

At PACK Academy, we socialize our dogs by exposing them to different stimuli and recording their tolerance levels for each one. These oservations help us understand the dogs better, which then helps us find suitable homes for them.

Strangers

Any strangers are welcome to pet or stroke Sparkle, execpt for tall guys, sometimes she keeps her distance when tall guys are nearby. (as we mentioned, she prefers girls!)

4

Dogs

Sparkle is not interested in other dogs. Note: She will be triggered and looks angry when there are other dogs trying to compete for people’s attention.

3

Cats

It’s okay for Sparkle to get along with cats, but she has no big interest in interacting (after all, she prefers human…).

3

Kids

As Sparkle prefers human, kids are no exception. Sparkle welcomes anyone who comes to her, petting and stroking.

5

Noise

Sparkle may be frightened and tremble if there is a sudden shout or noise, but it won't last long.

4

Touch

100% a big hug lover! Sparkle loves petting, stroking, and snuggling, with no sensitive part.

Behavior observations

There are some common behavior issues that we see in dogs who have spent a significant amount of time in a shelter. We assess our dogs for these behaviors and provide training plans for adopters to help manage them.

Barking

Sparkle barks when she’s excited or feels lonely. Just for a short time.

2

Seperation Anxiety

This may occur when Sparkle is in a new environment, soon it will get better when she’s getting used to it.

3

Aggression

No aggression toward humans, but Sparkle may be irritated by dogs of similar size and hyper personalities, especially when they are getting to her. Meanwhile, Sparkle will push other dogs away when they attempt to compete for people’s attention, sometimes it causes a fight.
