Sparky, an Italian Greyhound pup, got into an accident and broke his leg. His owners became scared of letting their furbaby do fun things that dogs do, especially when the veterinarian told them that their dog’s broken leg needed to be amputated.
Sparky’s owners knew they could not give their dog the life he deserves, so they decided to surrender Sparky at the clinic where he was scheduled to have his surgery. Fortunately, Sparky was properly cared for because the hospital he was operated on was famous for taking in dogs with special needs.
Luckily, one of the veterinary clinic’s assistants, Kennedy Simmons, had a soft spot for special needs dogs, so he decided to adopt Sparky right after meeting him. Kennedy shared that Sparky refused to let his missing leg slow him down at all and proved to be a puppy with a zest for life.
Sparky lived up to his name because he has been a wild pup since the first day of his adoption. Kennedy described Sparky as a naughty dog who always gets himself in trouble, and he often plays rough with other dogs that are twice his size.
Sparky loves playing with everyone and everything, but the only thing he does not like is sitting still for picture-taking, leaving his dad’s phone filled with hilarious photos of his pooch. Kennedy shared that Sparky can only stand a couple of minutes’ worth of picture-taking because he would instantly flop himself down and act like a limp as if throwing a tantrum.
Kennedy said that most of Sparky’s photos are weird yet funny at the same time because of his odd posing. He shared that even though Sparky can be a little bit of a rebel at times, there is no one else he wanted to come home to after a tough day.
