Dog Story: From Snoop: My Mom and Dad named me Snoop because I’m very curious and like to snoop into everything! My Foster Mom (FM)and Foster Dad (FD) thinkthe name fits. Sometimes I try to explore things with my mouth. Butwhen my FM (foster mom) says Leave it! I listen right away. I also know sit and settle. We’re working on stay, ‘wait’ and ‘down’ but those are a little harder for me. I am a high energy one year old and love to run and play with other dogs. Big dogs, small dogs, it doesn’t matter, as long as we can run and play chase or keep away. On really hot days it’s fun to play with a garden hose in the backyard. I play with balls and most of the time after I get to chase them, I’ll bring them back so FM can throw them again. (I appreciate her efforts, but really, she throws like a little girl.) One thing you should really know about me: even though I am a morning dog, after I play hard in the morning, I like to snuggle up on a lap for an afternoon nap. I’m still learning the house rules at FMs house so even though I know I should stay off the sofa, sometimes I just have to jump up there for a quick peek out the windows. But I jump right off again. And counters! We really have a difference of opinion about those kitchen counters. She’s always standing over them and whatever she does up there sure smells good. I keep trying to see (and maybe taste as little) what itis, but FM keeps after me to stay DOWN. So I sit and give her ThatBrittany Look hoping she’ll share, but all I’m getting so far is my kibble. And a really nice chew toy. I may have to re-evaluate my tactics. From FM (Foster Mom Snoop is a gorgeous one year old black and white French Brittany. He is friendly, very curious, sweet natured, and smart. He is also, as most Brits are, very high energy. And he’s not kidding when he says he’s a morning dog! He plays great with other dogs at the dog park. He is rather unruly on a leash when we walk, looking for squirrels and birds, but when small children have toddled up to pet him, he is calm and friendly, giving little kisses on their noses and fingers. He also tends to jump up, but with a light touch. Consistency and lots of exercise is key – the calmer he is, the easier it is for him to sit rather than jump. Snoop would do well with a family on the go – as long as he is going too. Snoop is an owner- surrender, obviously well loved and taken care of, but his owner was traveling a lot for work and didn’t think it fair to leave this wonderful but energetic dog alone in the house all day. Snoop is young and will definitely need some serious training but the potential is there for a fabulous companion.
