Sniper – ADOPTED!!

SniperADOPTED!!  This handsome boy is Sniper, and he was given the name by our Facebook family.  This little guy is only about a year old, and already has had a rough life.  Someone thought the little black and white pup would make good target practice, so as a result he has several pellets and pieces of metal throughout his body from being shot.  The x-ray in his photo album shows the proof of his prior abuse.  A bullet was surgically removed from his shoulder, and he has a bit of muscle loss at the surgical spot, but otherwise this long-legged boy is active and happy to chase the squirrels in his foster home’s back yard.  He is completely housebroken with a doggie door and walks well with a leash and harness.  He is extremely affectionate and sweet, and is submissive to all the other dogs in his foster home, some weigh half his 18 pounds.  He loves to be in your lap, and is a big fan of giving doggie kisses.  He is just a bit shy when meeting new people, but once he feels safe, he wants all the petting you can spare.  Sniper hasn’t been tested with children, but we feel confident he would do well, especially with children over 5 who are gentle and kind to him.  But his sad story doesn’t end with being shot.  He is also heart worm positive – a very light positive – and has begun treatment.  He should be healthy and ready for his new home some time in September, once he has a clean bill of health from our vets.  Upon request, we would be happy to test him with cats.  A home with a fenced backyard will be given precedence, per his foster parents.  If you have any questions about him, and think you would like to give this deserving little guy a new home, please let us know – or better yet, go ahead and fill out an application!  For more photos of Sniper in his foster home, click this link:
