04/01/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Snap Dragon is as pretty as his floral namesake, as frisky as a puppy and a total delight from snuffly nose to wagging tail! Though he arrived as a stray it’s clear from his great physical condition and sociable manners that this handsome boy was someones pet not so long ago and he’s more than happy to see me approach with leash in hand, whining eagerly as he waits for the door to be unlatched. Off we race to the yard where he sniffs hopefully at the two tennis balls I’ve put out for him but to my surprise makes no attempt to pick them up. Why the hesitation? I toss the first ball and the mystery is solved – Snap Dragon is a soccer player! He loves to kick and nose the ball from one end of the pen to the other and in between games it’s play bows and jumpy hugs galore as we chase each other around and around. Snap Dragon is pretty much constantly in motion but he pauses for a moment and joins me on the bench to enjoy some tasty treats (taken nicely from my hand) and snuggles (butt rubs are his favorite!) and when another dog passes by he runs to the fence to sniff noses in friendly greeting. He does pull a bit on leash and like to chase pigeons yet he’s very manageable in a harness and when we walk by other dogs Snap Dragon doesn’t lunge but softly and pitifully whines to play with them. Already neutered and ready to leave immediately, this guy has all the snuggles and soccer skills your active family will ever need. Hurry in and draft Snap Dragon for your home team today!
