What APA! says about Spanky:

Spanky loves to play. You can tell from his bright eyes and curious nature that he's a smarty pants. He's still very exuberant, so he'll do best with someone who can gently train him and teach him some manners.

Spanky will be the happiest boy on the planet if his life included regular exercise and room to romp, and since he's a solid boy, he would probably do best in a household without small kids.
