“Saving just one dog won’t change the world, but surely it will change the world for that one dog.”
Never has a foster dog so captured our hearts as our current little man has. His name is Snoop and he is absolutely one of the sweetest dogs you will ever meet. We work with the foster program at our local shelter, Animal Friends of the Valleys, to provide a good home for dogs that need a little extra love and care beyond the normal scope of the shelter. Knowing our love for Dobermans Animal Friends asked us if would be interested in fostering Snoop as soon as he came to the shelter, and our obvious answer was “absolutely.”
He has since been neutered and is beginning to put on weight, although he hates to eat. (Update 3/7/13: He is now eating regularly with no problem!) Up We are trying our best to have him eat 2 cups of kibble three times a day but despite his skinny stature we have to sit right by him for every meal to encourage him to eat.
We have fallen hard for this sweet Dobe, no doubt. But we are still hoping to find him the best forever home where he will get lots of attention and love. If you are in the Southern California area and are looking to adopt a wonderfully loving Doberman, Snoop is your dog. For any questions and/ or adoption inquiries please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Snoop’s Story: Snoop was brought into Animal Friends of the Valleys as a stray. He was definitely someone’s pet as a puppy as his ears have been cropped and stand nicely. He loves people so he was indeed taken care of at some point.
Health and Stats: Snoop is estimated to be about 4 years old. His teeth are healthy, his coat is beautiful, and he has a nice crop job. He is a red Doberman with a white patch on his chest and the sweetest brown eyes. He is still very skinny but gaining weight nicely and is otherwise healthy and happy.
Temperament: This guy is incredibly lovable, gentle, and docile. He will sit with his head in your lap for hours; all he wants is to be loved. He adores having his ears scratched and would let you pet him all day. He is low key, enjoys walks, and loves his squeaky Kong toy. He is very people friendly, but a little on the timid side. Snoop is crate trained and sleeps in his crate at night. He does well in the car too.
This dobe has a whole lot of love to give!
