Looks like: Poodle Maltese Mix
Male, 17 years old, 12 pounds
Sparrow must have interesting stories to tell given that he is 17 long years old. His missing eye poses so many questions! Has this little pirate seen the 7 seas? What seafaring voyages has he endured? What we do know is that he was definitely a nice pirate in his past life. Sparrow is a mellow old man and while he might be a little hard of hearing (pirate life can be loud) he can pick up some sounds. Since his vision and hearing are limited, he will take some time to adjust to his surroundings and will need someone who can guide him through that adjustment period.

Sparrow takes a little longer to trust, he isn't the kind of guy that wants to be picked up and handled without getting to know you first. Once acclimated, he is a good boy. He does not pull or tug on the leash and follows your lead slowly. He is good with both dogs and cats! He has in affinity towards men but is good with all people.

Sparrow has bouts of energy in the evening where he likes to play with his squeaky toy and will occasionally place his head in your lap for ear scratching, which he likes a lot. Being blind and deaf, he is a very special and courageous dog that needs a quiet home, with preferably a male who will give him attention. He does fine with women but seems to just tolerate, rather than truly enjoy the presence of women like he does with men. He absolutely needs a home with no stairs. And of course, a special, patient adopter to make him feel comfortable, understood and loved.

This is the day you will always remember as the day we DID catch Sparrow from San Jose Animal Care and Services.
