11/05/15 Update! Snickers, My precious old boy. He beats to his own drum. Very laid back, stays away from trouble. He would love being and only pup, or just one other older, preferably a female. He can be shy at first, but given time he warms up and loves his people. He is house, crate and car trained. He loves car rides, jumps right in and out of the car. He has his favorite bed, doesn't let anyone else use it, and that comes with him. He's been around kids and just ignores them for the most part, but probably not good around children under 2! 10/14/15 I always like to update Snickers, this is him in his bed in his foster home. This is his favorite place to relax!! Sweet boy! 01/07/2015 Snickers is doing great in his foster home. He is not fond of the larger high-energy dog in the home, but does well with the other laid back dogs. He would love to be an only dog as he loves to be loved on and curl up in your lap once he trusts you. We do believe he was abused in the past as he is very wary at first where your touch him until he gets to know and trust you especially around his neck where it appears he had an imbedded collar or some trauma to his neck at some point. He now allows his foster mom to touch and love on him anywhere and give him kisses on the face. He does a happy dance when he's excited and has begun to play with toys when the other high energy dog is not around. He is house broke but will mark to let the other dog he doesn't care for to stay away. This has diminished greatly with correction and the help of "no mark" spray. We believe being an only dog or with very laid back dogs he will not do this. We believe that he may only be about 8 years old. He has had a hard life so it is not easy to tell. He is very laid back and would make someone a great low maintenance dog. He does not require to go outside often and will hold it if it rains. He does not like the cold or the rain. He will go out if instructed. Please give this poor boy a home. He will make someone a loving companion who is loving to him. 10/27/14 Snickers with Sarah!! He loves this young lady!! 07/06/14 Sue wanted to update Snickers pictures, he has came a long way since he first came to partners. He is a sweet boy who wants to hang out with the volunteers and staff. He is a quiet boy and minds his own business. He just needs someone to give him the love he deserves. Older dogs make great companions. Won't you give Snickers a second chance? 12/29/13: This is Snickers he came to Partners For Pets a very scared boy.
