Snickers is a 60 lb. 12 year old liver and white springer who just arrived at his NEESSR foster home. We know he is a sweetie - but will be assessing his needs and provide more information as soon as possible.
09/24 - Snickers' foster famliy reports that he is a "wonderful dog - he is quiet and sleeps a good deal, but is affectionate and enjoys people"! He presently goes to work with his foster dad, where he spends the day with people and with other dogs. He is defintely much more interested in the people than the dogs. He is a gentle boy who loves to be petted and is not very demanding. Snickers does need a middle of the night potty break. Otherwise he has no problems in that department. His hearing and eyesight are not great. He does hear loud noises and sometimes comes when called.
Snickers is scheduled for a vet visit to address some lumps as well as some skin issues and the arthritis in his hind end that is definitely slowing him down. We'll be working on these issues. His foster famliy 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!
