Do you remember Snoop? The white Staffordshire bull terrier was abandoned before Christmas. The CCTV footage, showing his delightful human dropping the confused dog and his bed on a pavement at night, went viral. The RSPCA, which rescued Snoop, has since been inundated with adoption offers for the sweet white boy – even rapper Snoop Dogg offered his namesake a place at his house.
The RSPCA has today released this update on Snoop:
“It is still early days for Snoop as what happened to him has caused him a lot of distress,” said RSPCA spokeswoman Rachel Butler. “Staff who are caring for him have found that he has severe separation anxiety, which is no surprise after what happened to him, so they are working with him to try and alleviate this.
“At the moment he still isn’t available for rehoming while we work with him and continue to assess him. We know that so many people would love to offer him a home and we are grateful to everyone who has shown an interest in him. We are still assessing him to see what sort of home he would be suited to.
“We’re still getting to know Snoop just as he is getting to know us. He loves to play so we are teaching him to play nicely as he gets very overexcited!
“We know how much Snoop touched people’s hearts over Christmas so we wanted to let everyone know how he is doing. It is a long road ahead for Snoop and we know that people won’t be forgetting him in a hurry.
“Snoop is such a loveable character and enjoys being around people. He just loves getting close to people, sitting between their legs and having cuddles, and is certainly enjoying lots of love and affection from our staff.
“Even though Snoop isn’t available for rehoming at the moment, we still have many other Staffies just like Snoop who are looking for loving new homes, all of who are listed on our Find a Pet website.
“As the investigation into Snoop’s abandonment is ongoing, we are unfortunately unable to comment further on this aspect.”
