You don’t have to be a Snoopy groupie to know that the Snoopy of Peanuts fame was a Beagle, and this Snoopy is not. He’s a Parson Russell Terrier blend. Two to three years old, Snoopy was surrendered June 1st to the Blount County Animal Center shelter in Tennessee. Snoopy’s owner told the shelter that he just didn’t want to take care of him anymore. Snoopy was very scared to be at the shelter, and did lots of trembling. So he would hang out in the office with the shelter director during the day, where he became known as Snoopy, the Deputy Assistant Director of the shelter!
On June 12th, Kristin Baksa, the shelter’s rescue coordinator, reached out to RADAR for help with Snoopy. “Based on his fear, and positive heartworm status,” Kristin told us in her request, “I’m guessing Snoopy was ignored and kept outside all the time.” We agreed to cover Snoopy’s heartworm treatment costs. He received his heartworm treatment on June 16th. Snoopy was able to placed in a foster home.
Kristin shared this with us from Snoopy’s foster: “Snoopy is a very calm and sweet dog who walks well on a lead and does equally well off lead. He gets along great with the other dog in his foster home, but is a little nervous around cats. He loves to ride in the car and even enjoyed going out on a boat fishing. He especially loves snuggling up on a lap with a blanket and having a long nap!” Click here to view more photos of Snoopy.
RADAR paid all of Snoopy’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $170.
