Meet Spero! Spero means “I hope” in Italian. This sweet petite girl hopes for a forever home. She is shy at first but warms up and quickly loves her family. We estimate her age at approximately 4 yrs old. She had one eye removed immediately upon coming into AZCR. Her eye had suffered an injury and a severe infection. We don’t know the specifics. She has had at least one litter of puppies. Spero is about 8lbs. She might be a wee bit heavy, she loves to eat and has to be watched so she doesn’t steal a fur siblings meal. She’s done very well with her house training!! She took a liking to using the artificial grass right away. She’s happy to go in a crate with a treat and to sleep at night. We like to nap together and she cuddles up so nice & close. She won’t budge until you do! Spero loves to play with her foster siblings. She wrestles & rough houses and then they nap. She wants to always be near her human and part of the group. Spero let me trim her nails with out issue. She has learned to trust and if you’re meant to be her mom or dad she will trust you too. I’m very proud of this little lady. She’s willing to open her heart to strangers that come in the house.

I have not seen her interact with small children or cats. I suspect she will handle both well as long as she doesn’t feel threatened. She has done exceptional with big dogs and other dogs her size.

As you can see from her pictures she is tri-colored, has the best ears and one pretty bright brown eye! This freckled girl is charming in every way!
