Snoop has made some real progress this week and we are over the moon excited. If you are just tuning in, Snoop is our foster dog (you can read his story here) and he was beyond skinny and shy when he came to us. For the first couple of weeks we had to coax him to eat or even take a treat but now he's eating by himself, and not only eating, but eating with enthusiasm!
It is as if he has finally come alive. Maybe he feels like he's home or maybe he's just finally full, but either way he now loves to play. He runs laps around the backyard and chases the ball. He loves tug of war and just about any toy you throw for him. He explores the backyard and sleeps in the shade and does things a happy dog should.
When Snoop first arrived it was as if he had shut down. He showed no real emotion, no reaction, he remained fairly straight faced no matter the situation. But now, he responds to his name and he comes when he is called. The sight of his collar and leash excites him to no end, and he will gladly sit while you ready him for a walk.
We have never known a dog to forgo a rawhide bone, especially our dogs, but up until now Snoop pretty much ignored anything we tried to send his way. He now loves his rawhide and carries it with him wherever he goes. He is finally happy, and that makes us happy too.
Snoop is awesome and available for adoption in the Southern California area. If you are interested in meeting him or have any questions about him, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
