Mexipup | 2 Years | Male | Medium
Snoop is a beautiful young dog who came to us from the streets of Mexico with some fearfulness that remains an improving work in progress. He is very nervous meeting new people and it does take him some time to build trust and warm up to strangers. We are looking for an experienced adopter who will commit to this high energy boy by providing a stable, forever home with a fully fenced yard and lots of opportunities for exercise and play. Draining his energy is an important part of managing his behaviour, and it is imperative that Snoop has a fully fenced yard as well as regular walks and opportunities for both mental and physical stimulation to keep him a happy, well-balanced boy. When these needs are met, Snoop is full of love and joy. He is dog friendly with proper canine intros, and would thrive in a home where there is more than one other dog as he seems most confident and secure when he is part of a pack. We will not be able to consider a home with children under 12 years of age, as he needs a quiet, low stimulus environment. Snoop would benefit from regular structured activity such as agility training. To say that Snoop is also cat friendly would be a gross understatement...this boy ADORES kitties! He is also crate trained, but as an active dog, we do not want to see him in a home where he would have to spend a great deal of time crated, as he NEEDS to move. He is excellent on leash, though he does pull when when he gets excited, but is easily corrected. He can react to some dogs on leash as well, which is why his ideal home would be a more rural property, as he can get over-stimulated when there is a lot of activity going on around him. We thank everyone for applying, however, due to the high volume of applications we receive, only those deemed to be a potential fit will be contacted further.
A side note from the volunteers of K9 Crusaders...
Snoop deserves a forever home. He has been returned to us after two failed adoptions, in homes who fell in love with his adorable face and promised to meet his level of exercise needs only to return him with a list of behaviours that were immediately corrected once we resumed the appropriate level of what we have clearly stated his exercise needs are. He is a wonderful dog, even more so when he is fully understood. Any future adoptive home will require a slow transition with multiple meet and greets and home visits, so that we can ensure his exercise needs can and will be met, and he will have the opportunity to build trust slowly. We do NOT want to see this lovely dog returned again. He deserves 100% commitment from the next person or family who wishes to adopt him.
