Snickers in Philadelphia, PA

Just Adopted!
 
Here is Snickers with his new family...
 

Snickers is a handsome 4-5-year-old sweetheart who would love to join your family! Snickers previously lived on a farm and was used for breeding and had very little social interaction. He has made great strides and loves the home life with a soft bed and human companions.

Snickers loves to go on walks and has started to snuggle with his foster family. This little dog has tons of love to give to that special family. Snickers is doing well in his foster home. From day one in foster care, it really didn’t take him long to adjust to his new life in a warm house with two other Cavaliers. He really enjoys his dog companions and they make him feel safe. He enjoys long walks and does well on a leash. Snickers really enjoys being with people and following his foster mother around. At night, he loves to sleep at the end of your bed and by morning he will be snuggled up against you. Snickers is in good health. His coat is beautiful. In foster care, he was neutered, treated for an ear infection and has had a dental cleaning with 4 teeth removed. Typical to the Cavalier breed, he does have a grade 2-3/6 heart murmur, but is currently not on any medications for it. He is up to date on his vaccines. While in foster care, he has been 100% reliable with going potty outside, but he does wear a belly band as he does want to mark. This is occurring less and less after his neutering and he has never had an accident in the house.

His foster family feels that one of the qualities for the perfect home for Snickers would be a home with a fellow dog friend, since he enjoys the company of other dogs. A calm household is preferred as Snickers is scared by loud noises and fast moving things. A home with a secure fenced in yard is also very much preferred, as Snickers is used to being outside and loves to explore. In general, he is great with all kinds of people, but he should be fine in a home with older, gentle children.

Thank you for taking the time to consider Snickers! He has been an absolute joy to his foster family, and will make a lucky family very happy!
