Animal Friends presents: Snoopy!

Snoopy is a nine year old Rat Terrier who doesn’t know he’s a dog. But not to worry,
Rat Terriers can live up to 18 years and even longer.  I bought him from a breeder when he was 6 weeks old. He has had regular check-ups at the Vet. Therefore, Snoopy is very healthy and intelligent. He rings a bell when he needs to go out to potty. He is definitely not an outside dog although he does love to go for walks.

Snoopy is a good dog. We’ve never had trouble with him chewing on things that were not his. Just every once in a while, he goes into the garbage when we are not home. But, he is a quite pooch. The only reason we are offering him up for adoption is we are empty nesters and our lifestyle has changed.

Snoopy is very good with children and babies but because he has been living with empty nesters for the last six years, he would be better suited with older children. My grandson absolutely loves him. But his parents aren’t ready for more responsibility. Snoopy is affectionate and loves attention.

Snoopy is pretty much a loner as he can only deal with one dog at a time. He has gone to Doggy Day Care. But he only tolerates it. He gets nervous around dogs in group settings. Snoopy does have a favorite pet resort, Lucky Paws. I have to admit he is a little spoiled. 

If you can help Snoopy find a forever home, please contact Rose at
