Meet Gizmo.  He's our precious SPARKY Pet of the Week.

Gizmo is a sweet senior chihuahua mix. He came from a shelter after being pulled from a hoarding/puppy mill situation.

Gizmo was heartworm positive and has an old injury to his leg. His little teeth were also not in the best condition but no worries he is all fixed up now.

Gizmo gets around with his leg ok although he walks a little funky.  The only way to repair his leg at this time is to amputate. Decisions were made and Gizmo is keeping his leg as it is not a harm to him.  Although he may have arthritis in his leg as a result of the injury.

Gizmo gets along with other dogs and is the happiest fellow. He is also microchipped.

We have to give a shout out to SPARKY and all the folks who have stepped up to give their pups forever homes.  During the COVID-19 pandemic, SPARKY has been exceptionally busy finding homes for these lovable animals.  And, today, we're featuring Daisy as our SPARKY Pet of the Week!
