UPDATED 3/21/15:
Spanky is a 2 year old male Staffordshire Bull Terrier (mix) who strutted into Almost Home on 7/2/14 as only he can do. This is probably the happiest dog you will ever meet!!! He is so darn cute (and small) that when he gets his 34 pounds in true strut mode, people stop to admire him and adoring hearts flutter. SPANKY LOVES PEOPLE! He wears a handsome blonde brindle coat that is silky to the touch and he LOVES to be touched. Spanky is SHORT, SQUAT, and ALL SMILES!!! (He has a smile that only Alan Auglis of WSLS 10 can compete with! And his nice brown eyes smile like Alan’s do too!!!)
Spanky walks well on a leash and LOVES to give and receive affection. He sits for treats, enjoys belly-rubs, and responds to several other commands. It doesn’t seem possible for Spanky to get enough affection but he is hoping to one day (soon) get a family who will at least try to give him enough. He is very clean in his room—an indication that he’s most likely house-trained. He is a great student and so far has learned down and wait, sit and wait, twirl to the right, twirl to the left. Now he is working on learning catch, and leave-it.

When Spanky met Santa, Spanky wasn’t afraid of him at all. He kissed Santa several times during attempts to climb up onto Santa’s lap. In one photo you can see Spanky standing as tall as he can get on his tippy-toes to get himself into the best kissing range. Santa was as smitten with Spanky as Spanky was with him. Spanky wasn’t fortune enough to get a “forever home” for Christmas but he is hoping that his time spent “kissing up to Santa” will make his dreams come true soon. What he wants more than anything is to be someone’s own personal lap dog.
Spanky would probably do best with older, respectful kids and he can be VERY picky about the other dogs that he likes. Best that he be in a home without other dogs!!! That said, he’d probably do best as an only pet in an adult home. WATCH SPANKY’S VIDEO. For more info, contact Flower & Ed at or 434-361-0190.
