Sparky ~ in San Antonio

Looking for a Home

sparky Howdy! My name's Sparky and I'm looking for a forever home. I'm a neutered male silky terrier, born in April, 1999 (so that means I'm a year and a half old). I'm up to date on my shots and I'm heartworm-free.

My first owners were an older couple that took me home when I was just a wee lad. They had no idea what a terrierist a Silky puppy can be. They were unable to handle me and I ended up tied to a tree in their front yard. After about a year of this, a nice couple just down the street felt sorry for me and bought me. They took me home and put me in their back yard with their two rottweilers that I promptly terrorized. After a few months, the nice couple got a divorce and they were unable to care for all of their dogs. Someone had to go, and since I had never been taught manners, I was the one. They did the right thing and called STCA rescue and had me placed in a foster home.

I love to play fetch, bark at the moon, and generally have a good time. I have finally learned to drink from a bowl and come in the house. I love to play with kids, but I won't tolerate another dog. I would love for someone to take me home to love only me, teach me to come, sit, stay, work on my housetraining, and let me sleep with them. Can't you find it in your heart to adopt me?

The adopter will be expected to sign a contract agreeing to provide proper care for this silky, and there will be an adoption fee or donation of $150. If you are interested in adopting Sparky, please fill out an application and mention his name. The application is on-line at If you have already filled out an application, it is not necessary to re-do it...just email Your applications for Sparky will be forwarded to his foster family. We strongly prefer to place Sparky locally.
