Meet SNOOPY! We’re looking for an experienced home outside the city. where this girl can build her confidence and keep learning to dog. She doesn’t realize how amazing she is and is apprehensive of most things. It will take her time to build trust with her humans but she’s been working on it. A less than ideal home for her is one in the heart of the city where she’ll have to encounter a lot of action. We can tell there’s a part of her that really wants to interact with dogs because she always barks to go out with the pack but as soon as she gets out there she’s overwhelmed and is like wait, what? NO. She’s a flight risk as she will try to bolt when she becomes uncomfortable. One on one she’s pretty indifferent but can’t be around dogs who are reactive, nervous, or too alpha. Very social, respectful dogs might be ok. In the home she can be affectionate with her people after proper intros and does like to be pet which is great because she’s so soft. She can be sensitive to touch though so it’s important to read her signals. She heavily relies on her crate as a safe space and will retreat there if she feels uncomfortable. She needs a quiet home with a backyard so that she can explore and get her outdoor time. She shouldn’t go to a home with lots of people coming and going. When meeting new people she should start in her crate, check them out from a distance and start to build up her comfort level. She will come out when she’s ready! People should not approach her or she may become reactive. SNOOP has not been tested with cats but lives with one very dog savvy 10 year old. As long as older kids can fully respect her boundaries she may be ok but they need to have and understanding of what it means to live with a nervous pup. SNOOP is well behaved in the home. With calm, patient people she will continue to grow and we can’t wait to see the pooch she becomes. If you’d like to meet her fill out an application to adopt now!
