Facts about Snickers

  • Breed: Beagle/Labrador Retriever Mix

  • ID#: 2016485C
Snickers is handsome and a real sweetheart, but he is shy and lacks the confidence with the world around him. He would do best in a home with a good doggie role model and a patient person who is willing to work to gain his friendship and trust. He gets along with other dogs and is housebroken. A new home with a fence is not necessary but would help Snickers have a safe place outside. A family with older children, or no children, would be best since Snickers gets nervous with sudden moves and may run through open doors. Sleeping in bed with his foster family is something he enjoys and he also likes to play with toys. Snickers is looking for a patient and confident family who will help him overcome his fear of the big world and he promises you a warm bed partner, companionship, and love. He will definitely melt your heart when you look into this little guy's eyes.

Snicker's adoption fee is $175; he is microchipped, neutered, and up to date on vaccines. Some of our pets are in foster care. If you are interested in a specific pet, please contact the shelter at (618) 939-7389 to arrange a meeting.

About Helping Strays of Monroe County

About Our Shelter...

We promote the humane care of all abandoned and stray animals in our community. We are a no-kill shelter. All of our pets leave the shelter for their forever homes micro-chipped, up to date on vaccines, and altered.

Founded in 2002, Helping Strays is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization supported entirely by donations.

Our lucky animals receive appropriate medical care, are featured on the Helping Strays website "adoption list" and are taken to several adoption events every month in an attempt to find permanent, loving homes.
