Pet of the Week- Snickers
Snickers is what they call me here! I am a sweet and reserved fellow. I am an adult rescue from down south so everything up here is new from the taste of the water to the sound of your accents! I am an affectionate guy. I just like folks to go a bit slower when they come to visit me. It helps me feel more relaxed if things aren’t moving fast and hectic. I am nervous around cars so need more practice walking by them and climbing in and out of them, food rewards and patience go a real long way. The folks here think I am about 3 years old and I was lucky enough to travel here from the south, just so I could find my family! No one knows my whole history but the folks here believe I am a boxer mix. I am considered a special needs adoption because shortly after being rescued it was realized that I had heartworm. I was a good boy through my treatment and am ready to be adopted but the folks here want my new parents to be aware that they will need to restrict my exercise for a while so just leash walks for us and follow up with their own veterinarian to make sure my treatment was successful. I am looking for a family with children 12 years and older and who is ready for their next great love.
So what do you say, are you willing to take a chance on me? To see all of the available dogs and cats at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter please go to our website: capeannanimalaid.org.
