Snickers is a 12 year old 57 lb liver and white ESS. He has now been with his foster family for close to 2 months – and he is doing great! Although definitely a senior gentleman, with time Snickers has become much more perky, showing his sweet and funny personality. Snickers' foster family reports that he is a "wonderful dog". He accompanies his foster dad to work every day, where he hangs out with lots of people and other dogs. He is definitely much more interested in the people than the dogs. He is a gentle boy who loves to be petted and is not very demanding. His hearing and eyesight are not great. He does hear loud noises and sometimes comes when called.
Snickers has allergy-related skin issues that are being addressed. Its likely the allergies are environmental and will need ongoing monitoring and control. He has numerous fatty tissue lumps that pose no threat. We’ve started him on meds to help with the arthritis in his hind end. His foster family reports that, despite the arthritis, Snickers does manage to participate in the sport of counter surfing!
Snickers would do best with a family that can spend a lot of time with him in a home without stairs to climb. Of course, his adopter would have to be willing to work on medical issues that are expected in senior dogs as well. This old boy has a lot of love to give!
