ADOPTED 06-04-11: As one of twenty three Nova Scotia duck tooling retrievers rescued from a puppy mill in Mississippi where they had suffered extreme neglect Spartacus always stood out from the crowd. During the training and socialization process Sparty (Spartacus) was always open, alert and confident. From the early stages he was capable of being a reassuring force for the other dogs, always willing to play and accept the fears of the remaining Tollers “. Spartacus is a beautiful white male, with very deep insight and calm demeanor, fully at home lying at your feet or playing at full speed. Spartas eyes reflect the understanding that comes from having survived a horrible past and transitioning into a safe and loving world. Spending time with this guy makes you truly assimilate the great capability of dogs, five minutes with him and you feel as though you have been friends forever, comfortable as an old pair of deck shoes. 


Spartacuss best friend is one of the rescued Tollers ” named Kenobi, a dog with a damaged hind leg from a wild hog attack while he was chained. Sparty watches over the old dog with the kindness of an angel, allowing old Kenobi to think that he is in charge, quite a beautiful sight. Few dogs naturally possess the ability to fit in anywhere, Sparty not only fits in, he excels in all situations, other dogs, kids and a few better than average cats. If you have an urge to have an instant best friend that is always glad to see you and easily maintained, you really should give this wonderful guy a look.
