A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Meet the real Snoop Dog, 8 years young, handsome as a puppy and a true gentleman, he’s currently residing at our Manhattan Care Center but oh so ready to be residing on your family couch instead! Snoop acts a little shy in his den but he’s easily leashed and happy to head to the park where he takes care of all his business before reveling in a stroll through the crunchy, sweet-smelling fall leaves. He walks like a dream, greets other dogs we pass very politely and was a total rock star in playgroup too, engaging in bouncy, running play with peers of both sexes. Snoop would be thrilled to find a new family with some four-legged siblings to keep him young at heart but he’d also make for a great dog park date all by himself. In fantastic health and clearly very well looked after in his previous home, his fur is lush, his eyes are sparkling and his ears perky and he always watches everything going on around him with such a serious-curious face. Nothing gets past this guy without a good eyeballing! Gentle, affectionate, playful and smart, Snoop did well on his behavior assessment and he’s already neutered and ready to head for a dog-savvy home today. If you’re a fan of handsome hunks of a certain age then Snoop can’t wait to meet you and even if you think you’re not, he’ll make you a believer. Visit the Care Center and fall in love with Snoop the dog today!
Another volunteer writes: Are you ready to be greeted like a long lost friend? Like you are the most important person in the world? If so, meet Snoop! Runway model gorgeous – seriously! His coat is clean and groomed, his weight perfect for his size, and his physique, ooo la la! Wearing a coat against the cold, Snoop loved snooping around the backyard pen, sniffing out all the good scents left behind by others. I left the pen for a moment and when I returned he was SO happy to see me, greeting me like I had been gone for hours rather than 30 seconds. So cute. Snoop and I played ball, he does an awesome retrieve, we cuddled against the cold, Snoop in my lap and I could hear him purring. He romps with both males and females in playgroup, loves to cuddle, loves to play ball, and is likely housetrained. Hello? It doesn’t get better than that!
Another volunteer writes: Snoop is so loved by all that you can’t walk through the halls without staff calling out to him, or another volunteer saying, ‘isn’t he just the BEST?’, and I agree with them all. He’s star quality inside and out, handsome, well behaved, well mannered in every way, loves people and loves playing with other dogs. He has a tag on his kennel reading PLAYGROUP ROCK STAR. He’s at that age where some playtime is great, snuggles with a person are cherished, toys are fun, and a soft bed is welcome. Snoop hopped in his kennel when our time was over, picked up his plush toy and lay down on his bed. With a Masters Degree in play and cuddles and movie star good looks, Mr. Snoop is patiently waiting to meet his soulmate.

Snoop makes me nostalgic, as a kid I had a favorite plush toy, Little Snoops, and we went on all sorts of adventures together. His silent, understanding companionship and snuggly body were a real comfort and our not-so-little Snoop is just the same, a soft, friendly boy who wants only to love and be loved by us humans. His normally serious face breaks into a big grin when I pet him or he jumps up for a hug (only when asked of course!) and he’s usually right by the door, hopeful eyes watching and waiting for someone to notice what a good boy he is and take him out for a walk. Snoop seems to be extremely house trained, peeing a river the minute we’re outside, and he walks well on leash too. He knows how to sit for treats or the throw of a ball but the concrete is very cold on this winter night so instead of a full sit he does the most adorable ‘butt hover’ a few inches above the ground – even big Snoop has a sensitive side! Greeting other dogs nicely, taking his treats gently, chasing but not retrieving a ball and showing no signs of any guarding issues, Snoop is what I call a great all-rounder. He’s the kind of dog who’d be welcome anywhere that good looks, high spirits and unconditional loving are appreciated and he’s anxious to blow this popsicle stand and move into your home and heart today!
