Pet of the Week: Snickers

He’s not what some might call a “normal” looking dog, whatever the definition of that might entail.

He has an underbite, which is accentuated by his beautiful big brown eyes. As he searches your face for any indication that you might want to play with him, he wiggles his little behind in and around your legs. His full intent is to make sure that you notice who he is and that he’s more than just another pretty face.

His name is Snickers and he’s a 1-year-old, neutered, brown unknown mix with a personality that doesn’t “stop at the front door.”

Sweet and playful, Snickers loves spending time with his human friends, going wherever they choose to go. If he’s allowed to run around on his own, he’s perfectly happy to wander around by himself sniffing whatever is available for sniffing—trees, bushes, leaves and grass.
If another dog is added to his environment, he mirrors their behavior. If they go into a play bow, Snickers will play bow, too. He will passively sniff the other dog and then ready himself to play with his new friend. “Let’s go,” his wiggly hind end seems to say.

Toys don’t seem to interest him. If a human is in the room with a bunch of dog toys, he will choose the person to hang out with, especially if they will take him for a walk or play tug-of-war with him. As the sun goes down and the shadows of the day grow long,

Snickers is ready to climb onto someone’s lap for the evening. His day of exceptional moments has come to a close. As he falls asleep, he dreams of his new fur-ever home where he can prove to everyone what an extraordinary boy he really is.
