A sparkledog, also known as a Sparkle is a term for a furry character, generally non-anthro, with unusual hairstyles and fur colours or patterns, including rainbows. The term "Sparkledog" may also be applied to other non-canine species. Non-canine Sparkles are often referred to as Sparkleanimals.
The term is often used in a dismissive, semi-derogatory sense, but can also be used affectionately by people describing characters or fursonas. Furries with sparkledog fursonas are sometimes labeled wolfaboos.
Sparkledogs are often depicted with accessories or decoration including piercings, tattoos, dyed hair, and jewelry. (A 2008 image by RaspberryMaggot depicts a colourful character, surrounded by accessories, saying "I have no thumbs!") Sparkledogs tend to be looked down upon, possibly due in part to an ED article about them.
|Gloomdogs are NOT the same as SCENEDOGS or SPARKLEDOGS. Some may be scene, and yes, they are categorized as sparkledogs, but they cannot be insane colors, unlike other sparkles|
