Snoopy (foster care)'s Info...
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Snoopy needs forever home! (NW Philly)
We're fostering SNOOPY, a beautiful white/tan pit mix who's a goofy, joyful, wiggly snuggler & would make a fantastic companion for the right person or family. Snoop's been our guest since late January & we've really enjoyed his sweetness and intelligence. He also rocks Nylabones, dirty socks, and frozen plain yogurt in a Kong.
Here's what we know: he's young (ACCT estimates 1-2 years), neutered, UTD on shots, 47 lbs. He lives with a medium-sized female dog and three male cats in his foster home and he has done well -- politely curious with the cats, appropriately second fiddle with our (older, smaller, bossy) dog. He has good leash manners, especially in his harness. He knows "sit" and "stay" and is learning "down," "touch," and "find." He is housetrained. He is food-motivated. He *loves* his crate and will make a beeline for it when he gets a chewie or a Kong.
In terms of dog dynamics: Snoopy was in co-housing at ACCT, has successfully played in various groups of dogs at a local dog park, and has mixed with dogs from Queenie's Pets on walks and playdates. He does very well with some dogs and shows signs of anxiety (very common for shelter dogs) around others. We are working with an R+ (positive reinforcement) trainer to help Snoopy become the best dog he can be; our trainer's take is that Snoop is REALLY smart and eager to please, which makes him a great fit for mental exercises and games where he has to figure things out. (Those games are pretty fun for me too.) As far as his physical exercise goes, we take him on several 20-30 minute walks each day and he has been fine with that; I think that he would *love* to live in a household where he could go hiking or running with someone, but that's not a dealbreaker. Finally, we're fostering Snoopy through ACCT, which charges an adoption fee of $75.
If you'd like more information, let me know -- I could talk about Snoop for days. He is a great dog with the potential to be even better and we'd love to see him find a stable, loving, permanent home.
