You have to love middle aged females! They come fully housebroken with great manners. Snookie took a few minutes to use the dog door, but mostly because she was unsure if she would be welcome in the house. Snookie finds chairs to be the best place to watch the world go by or take a good nap. She will go to a dog bed if directed. Snookie is reserved around the other dogs in the pack and rarely joins in any of the games. She will be fine as an only dog or with a canine companion that is not very playful. She rarely bays, so would be fine in a townhouse or apartment.
Snooki has an occasional limp, so HBHR had her checked out. She has some arthritis in her front shoulders, so will need a daily joint supplement and anti-inflammatory meds after increased activity. A monthly injection has improved her mobility tremendously! She will need a home that will provide her with a couple walks a day to keep those joints a moving!
Snookie wishes that she could still be a lap dog, but is content to cuddle up next to you on your chair. She is never demanding of your attention but clearly enjoys any love you have to give her. She is frightened of thunderstorms and fireworks, so will need a secure place to be, if alone when the thunder starts rumbling! Snookie will be a great companion for almost anyone, so apply today to come and meet her.
