Hi there folks! Name’s Sniper. I’m a special boy with a silver face and a golden heart. Sadly my family had to surrender me to Dogotwn because my fur-mom and I no longer saw eye to eye :(

My soul hasnt quite caught up with my body as yet. My joints get sore sometimes but the humans here give me magic little treats which make it all better. I have a sneaky suspicion that they hide tablets inside those little balls of deliciousness but be that as it may, it helps me so I will turn a blind eye.

I am still a puppy at heart, I love playing and I can be very silly sometimes :) I must say, the humans here find me very entertaining. I love to be loved. So if you want to love me, cuddle me, fuss me, tell me how handsome I am while gently brushing me and feeding me treats… then I’m your guy! I will paw you to remind you that you stopped fussing me, that’s just an added feature to my personality :)

I grew up with tiny humans so a home with kids is no problem for me. I am social as well so if you have other furkids, why not bring them along so I can meet them? I would love a home with some fur-silbings. I am not a fan of felines though, we just dont see eye to eye.

I do have to tell you about the scary monsters in the sky, they really freak me out. When its raining and the earth starts to rumble and the clouds become angry…. boy oh boy that’s when I get really scared and I try to get away from the sky-monsters. I need a home with a family who will understand this and who will make sure im always safe from the monsters in the sky and who will make sure I have a safe place to go when lightning and fireworks start. There are lots of ways to help me through these scary times and the humans here have said they will share all their “how to make Sniper feel safe secrets” with my forever family.

I love going for walks, not too long though, remember what I said about my body not quite matching my teenage soul. But a stroll around the block would do me the world of good :)

If you have some space on your couch for this old silver-faced fella, please contact
