A volunteer writes: A white little ball of fluff appropriately named Snowflakes is clamoring for a walk so out we go. He goes potty right away and spryly motors along by my side. If I hadn’t been told he’s 9 years young I would never believe it! As we walk it seems he’s looking for his people as he was surrendered to our care as his family no longer had time for him. Having lived with four young children with whom he was relaxed and tolerant he’s ready for just about anything. We’re told his favorite treats are pancakes, waffles, yogurt and fruit, sits when asked, guards his food, barks when someone rings the doorbell but then is quiet. and loves to play chase and with balls and squeaky toys. He also loves to sit in his person’s lap. He’s an adorable little guy who is doing the best he can after having lived with his former family all of his life. Sweet, friendly and happy to make new friends, Snowflakes invites you to stop by and meet him.
Snowflakes is an 9 year old male Miniature Poodle / Maltese mix. His family got him from a pet store 8 years ago and surrendered him due to lack of time.
Snowflakes is shy with new people for a few minutes. He lived with 4 children ages 4 and older and is relaxed, playful, and tolerant with them. He plays exuberantly with people. He met dogs outside. He barks and lunges at some dogs and is relaxed and playful and plays gently with others. He’s more likely to be friendly with female dogs. He’s never bit anyone.
Snowflakes doesn’t mind storms. He freezes, hovers over his food, and growls when someone tries to take his food. He plays when someone takes his treat/bone/toy. He doesn’t mind when someone moves him off furniture, holds/restrains him, wakes him up, or brushes him. He’s nervous and tries to jump out of the tub during baths. He’s used to having nail and hair trims at the groomer. He barks when someone rings the doorbell but is quiet once they come inside. He doesn’t mind when strangers come into his home or approach his family.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Snowflakes family describes him as friendly, affectionate, playful, shy, excitable, and high energy. He follows his family around and sits in their laps. He plays chase and plays with balls and squeaky toys. He lived inside and slept with his owner. He ate dry Beneful food. His favorite treats are pancakes, waffles, yogurt, and fruit. His family walked him 1-2 times per day. He urinated large volumes anywhere outside when walked. When his family didn’t walk him in a timely manner, he had accidents inside a few times per week. Snowflakes gets into garbage and steals food from the table when he’s home alone. He sits when asked. He went for slow walks and pulls lightly on his leash.
Snowflakes was tense during his intake. His owner scanned (+) him, collared him, positioned him for pictures, and put him in his kennel. He tried to hide behind his owner. He didn’t vocalize. He defecated while walking through the building.
When I approached Snowflakes’ kennel, he had a loose body and wagging tail as he sniffed me. He became tense while I picked him up and while I walked him around. He approached me and sniffed my hand briefly. He had a soft body while I replaced his food and water.
