Sparky, an 8-year-old Dachshund, waits to be fed by his owner Linda Glasson at her home in North Naples. Sparky was rescued Glasson and her husband, Jim, in June. They adopted Sparky from a veterinarian in Miami after his former owners took him to the vet to be euthanized because he was badly burned on 30-40 percent of his body. Sparky has healed and adjusted to his new home and has his own blog on Facebook. People from all over the world have sent Sparky gifts and Christmas cards.
