And now a few words from me:
Hi – I’m Snoopy, a distinguished-looking fellow who has reached the civilized age of 9. My previous family over-
indulged my appetite, rendering me rather portly. I’m now back to a svelte 19 lbs. and am able to enjoy being a bit
more physically active, although I’m quite a laid-back guy. Despite my urging, my Foster dad has been great at
preventing me from snacking – I know it’s for the best, but old habits are hard to break. I’ve been pretty resourceful in the past, even helping myself to snacks in the garbage can, so anything like that should be tucked away or out of my reach.
How do I spend my time, you ask? Well, like I said, I’m fairly quiet and laid-back, preferring to sleep and cuddle
with you on the couch. I love car rides and going for walks, but I don’t walk very far or very fast because of my previous weight issues. I don’t particularly enjoy high-energy dogs, especially when they are trying to play – I find
their behaviour a bit nerve-wracking, if I’m being honest. I guess I’m a little on the shy side, but I do like other dogs
and cats, and will sniff them courteously. If someone comes to the door, I may bark to alert you and then head
back to my dog bed. If you’re looking for an easy-going companion who appreciates a relaxed lifestyle, I’d love to hang out with you!
And now a few words from my foster family:
Snoopy has been nothing but kind and loving from the first moment he arrived in my care. He settled in quickly, which really helped the transition from his old routine to his new one. He was never crate trained previously and
does not make any mess while I’m at work during the day. When you are home with him, it’s good to be proactive
about bathroom outings and keep him on a regular schedule. He’s not great at communicating when he has to go, so if he quietly disappears for too long exploring the house, he might make a mess. Snoopy listens well and will come when called by name. Stairs are a problem for him, given his weight history, and should be avoided.
Snoopy is a great guy, and will thrive in a low-energy environment where he will be showered with love, as he just beams when he is the object of your affection.
