Dogs, like people, have fears and anxieties, joys and hopes. We welcomed Snoop into our rescue a little while ago, and we are happy to say that his foster family has been loving and caring for him with great diligence. Snoop initially struggled with a bit of anxiety, and foster mom and family have been helping him adjust to his new surroundings and embrace his new life one day and one experience at a time. Snoop is a 2 year old, 58 pound retriever mix. He is house trained and he walks well on a leash. He knows sit, come, and wait. Snoop has done well with meeting other dogs, but would probably be best in a home without kitties. Snoop is a very quiet dog, and his foster family has only heard him bark when he’s heard the neighbor’s dog barking. Snoop is crated during the family’s work day, and although it takes him 5-10 minutes to settle, he does fine once he has. Adjusting to the crate was the biggest hurdle for him. He is a bit of a’ Velcro’ dog, meaning that he loves to be near his people. Snoop loves his toys and loves to be outside. He makes foster mom chuckle because he uses his paws to hold his toys in such a funny way. He’s not a beggar, however he is eager to learn and food motivated, which is always a great asset in training a dog. Snoop’s anxiety displays itself when his humans leave his sight, and foster mom has found that some all natural calming tabs help him when this happens. He will lick his paws and pace when he is nervous. Foster mom says that he enjoys dog chews (which also help him relax) and that he loves to go outside on the 20 foot long lead to play fetch and romp. Snoop will sit at the door and alert someone when he needs to go out. Snoop is looking for a lifelong, affectionate companion and family who will help him learn to relax and enjoy life. If you are looking for a dog that loves the outdoors and loves cuddle time too, he might be just the dog for you!
