Sniffles, a unique 12-year-old dog, is trying to find the perfect family to give him a ‘fur-ever’ loving home.
The dog has crooked teeth and is missing a nose, which causes him to snort.
“He’s just a precious old man. Everyone at the vet’s office has fallen in love with him,” said Michelle Wacker from Orange County Animal Services.
The stray dog was rescued in Florida by local animal control and is now living with a foster family waiting to be adopted.
Sniffles is not only a star at the veterinarian’s office in Chuluota, Florida, but now has also stolen the heart of the nation.
In Sniffles’ TV debut, the Poodle and Pooch Rescue explained how he ended up on the street in Orange County, Florida.
Sniffles was once a stray in Puerto Rico, rescued by Rabito Kontento (Happy Tails), before being adopted by a family in Florida.
Before Sniffles’ adoption, he went through three surgeries. He suffered from multiple injuries and bite wounds during an attack by other stray dogs who were much larger and lost his nose, announced Poodle and Pooch Rescue in a “Sniffles Pupdate.”
It also said in the update that “Sniffles escaped from his new owner several times…while his adoptive family loves him, it just isn’t the best home for this special needs little guy.”
The Poodle and Pooch Rescue will work with the Rabito Kontento to find him the best possible home for his special needs.
