Here is what Douglas County Volunteer Sherri sent Intake Team members about Sniffles: A really special guy that they are trying to get into rescue if possible…he is basically missing his nose and some of his upper jaw/front teeth. He seems to do okay in spite of it. The staff doesn’t want to give up on him and are willing to hold off on putting him down if they can find a group that takes in special needs guys…they are calling him “Sniffles” as he does snort a bit. Does OPP work with special needs/have any connections or do you know of a group that DC can contact for him? I’m attaching photos…it’s a bit shocking at first but he’s such a sweet guy…a young adult Shar Pei mix that came in as a stray. He’s been with someone for a while obviously as his weight was okay and he’s not a puppy (he can eat wet food). He’s afraid of being on leash at the moment but I’m going to see if I can get him to walk with me tomorrow or over the weekend. Sniffles is now in a great OPP foster home! We are appreciative of all of the public and fellow-rescue group support we have received. Sniffles has a great life ahead of him!
