Meet Snags

Oh Snags! This little guy has been through a lot. We learned about him from a homeless woman. She brought us to a house that was vacant but was in the midst of home improvements. Our initial attempts to catch Snags were not successful. Snags would not allow us to leash catch him, too frightened and he would run and hide. We left a note on the door with our contact information and we were pleasantly surprised to receive a call from the new property owner. We learned that Snags was left behind by his owner and had been on the property for six months, waiting by the dog for his owner to come home. Soon Snags was humanely trapped and he was safe, in our care. The first few weeks, Snags would growl and shake in fear.....until he realized he was now surrounded by kindness. Snags had a mouth full of snaggle teeth. It was obvious that he needed to have some dental work and have some time to decompress. Today Snags is thriving in his foster home. He follows his foster mama everywhere, almost afraid to let her out of sight. He loves to settle on her lap, accepting pets and never ending affection. Snags also had 13 teeth removed, causing his tongue to at times rest outside of his mouth. Upon rescue, poor Snags had a mouth that was full of infected teeth. Now he is pain free. If you are interested adopting Snags ($200 donation), an application IS A MUST. We know Snags would prefer a household that is quiet with a simple routine. He is still a bit insecure about being abandoned again and will follow you, always hoping for an invitation to sit on your lap. Snags seems quite indifferent to other dogs but can share space without any issues. We estimate Snags to be about three years old. He is a unique looking pooch, grateful to be in a home, safe. Please take a moment and fill out an application: https://www.povertyspets.org/adoption-form-2. Once received, you will be contacted within 48-72 hours. Thank you.
