Lucky Spark came in the day after "Spark Day" this year, a holiday created in honor of an old dog on the brink of death that Wetzel County Animal Shelter saved by keeping the Spark of Life alive in him and helping "Sparky" find a home to enjoy for the last nine months of his life. She was named in honor of the holiday. This poor girl was sitting alone in a rural area and someone stopped to help her. She clearly was starving and is very underweight. The Good Samaritan brought her to Wetzel County Animal Shelter in New Martinsville, WV where she is estimated to be 1 to 2 years old. She weighs only 33 lbs. -- so underweight for a boxer mix, but despite the neglect oh so sweet.and loving! There they bathed her and gave her the primary vaccines to ensure her good health. This dog is most certainly lucky to have found her way to the shelter, but to follow in Sparky's pawprints she needs to find a home of her own. Right now she waits at the shelter, happy to have found an oasis of compassion, but longing for a dog bed of her own to snuggle in and a person of her own to love.
