Sparkles is a sweet little dog. She is half Shitzu and half Jack Russell Terrier. Sparkles was 8 months old when we got her from the pound. Sparkles first weekend at her new home, she was very nervous. She would not eat and preferred to hide under the couch. After a few days, Sparkles began to relax and enjoy her new home. After a week went by, Sparkles began to show the Jack Russell Terrier in her by running though the house as fast as she could go. Wow, she can be an active dog. After a month, Sparkles met a new family member. My brother returned home from college. She immediately became attached to him and loves to play with him. She has her own bright yellow dish that she eats and drinks from. Every night she sleeps in my bed on her favorite pillow, which is shaped like a dog. Sparkles waits patiently at the end of the bed for my mom to bring her a small treat. She thoroughly enjoys this treat. Sparkles has grown to love her new home and family. She loves chew toys and is a wonderful family pet.
