The primary focus is to find a loving home for a poor puppy that was attacked by other canines, resulting in the loss of its nose. As per the recent news report, numerous potential adopters have shown interest in giving this pup a forever home.
The dog named Sniffles has gone through a lot of hardships after being deserted in Puerto Rico. He has been dealing with multiple health issues and was also bitten by other stray dogs. However, Sniffles has shown remarkable improvement after receiving treatment in the US and is currently sharing his experience with an animal charity based in Florida. It is believed that Sniffles had to endure extremely harsh living conditions in Puerto Rico which led to him being infected with whipworms, hookworms, and other parasites. He also requires dental attention due to his medical condition. Sniffles had been attacked by other stray dogs in the past, which resulted in him having several injuries and illnesses, and he lost his nose as a result. With the help of the charity, Sniffles may soon find a new home where he can live a much better life.
After being discovered by a local animal rescue organization in Puerto Rico, Sniffles was eventually adopted by a family in the US where he could receive better medical attention. However, this arrangement was only temporary as Sniffles required ongoing care and had a tendency to run away. Fortunately, he found a permanent home with Florida’s Poodle Pooch Rescue, an organization that saves hundreds of puppies every year through volunteer efforts. On December 19th, the rescue took Sniffles in and began searching for a suitable home for him. He even appeared on a local news program on December 24th to help find his forever family.
After some time, Sniffles’ luck turned around. A remarkable 100 individuals have contacted the animal shelter expressing their interest in adopting him following his heartwarming story. However, potential adopters must be fully committed to the task at hand as Sniffles requires dedicated care, which includes cleaning his nasal passage twice daily and providing him with eye drops due to his dry eyes. According to Rebecca Lynch, the spokesperson for the shelter, Sniffles also has several parasites such as whipworms and hookworms, which suggests that he may have lived in unsanitary living conditions before arriving at the shelter. Additionally, Sniffles has been diagnosed with Ehrlichia, which is a tick-borne illness. Thankfully, Sniffles is receiving treatment and is on his way to a full recovery. Despite his illnesses and challenges, Sniffles remains a resilient dog that still loves others.
Lynch continued by saying that Sniffles is a remarkable pup, despite his challenging past. Although he initially appeared hesitant and disoriented, Sniffles has gradually begun to reveal his true nature. He brightens up when he’s outside, happily wags his tail, gets along with other canines, and produces the cutest little snorting sounds due to his condition. Sniffles also enjoys being petted, and his cute and content demeanor has garnered a lot of attention since being featured on local television in Central Florida.
It is unfortunate that Sniffles’ story is not uncommon, despite his unique appearance. Our rescue takes in dogs with special needs on a weekly basis. We encourage those who cannot adopt Sniffles to consider adopting another special needs animal, donating to their care, or fostering animals as an alternative. In the meantime, Sniffles is being cared for by Genesis Diaz, a kind-hearted resident in the area. She woke up this morning to find Sniffles staring at her from the side of her bed. Suddenly, he ran over, spun her around, and began licking her face.
Those who rescue animals also become attached to them. According to Michelle Wacker, the medical director of the clinic, he is just a kind old man who has won the hearts of everyone at the facility. She describes him as a reliable dog, but with a peculiar personality.
