We picked up Snoop Dogg on May 1. He wasn’t the foster dog we were supposed to get, but due to a slight mix up, he was the one we ended up with. He was supposed to be a short-term foster case because he was young and handsome. He was expected to be adopted out quickly, but due to some behavior issues we discovered, that wasn’t the case. We were used to older, calmer Bulldogs in our home and that just wasn’t him. He came into our home like a storm. He chewed up all of our dog’s toys, he ran around like a crazy puppy and jumped on the furniture and drooled… oh, how he drooled on everything!
But I have never seen a more loving and affectionate dog. He loves my husband and I so much, and you can honestly tell he is grateful to have a family that loves him just the way he is. He has brought a new life to our home; our Bulldogs are more active now and always want to be around him to see what he is doing. Snoop greets us every time we come in the door with kisses and love. He may not have been the foster dog we were supposed to get, but he has turned out to be the Bulldog we were meant to adopt. We are officially a foster fail. We are so happy to make Snoop an official part of our family!
Please welcome 3-year-old Snoop Dogg to our rescue family! Snoop Dogg is quite the smart fella. Three years ago, Snoop went off to college with his dad and just returned home. Problem was Snoop’s dad moved home with his parents and they already have three dogs of their own and Snoop would make four. Snoop was the biggest of all the dogs in the home and everyone was afraid of him. None of the small dogs wanted a Bulldog brother ~ they thought he snored too loud, played too much and ate all the treats. Snoop Dogg was sad to go, but understood that the family liked small dogs and he felt like three was company and four was a crowd. Snoop Dogg is looking for an active family with kids if possible, a family that loves Bulldogs, and a family that understands that loud snoring is just what most Bulldogs do.
5/1/18 Update: Hey everyone, its Snoop Dogg! So yesterday was a really big day for me, I moved in with my new foster parents and their two english bulldogs. I was so excited on the drive to their house that I kept trying to jump into the front seat so I could take the wheel and get us there faster. Once we got to the house I got to meet the lady and man of the house Chelsea and Biskit They are a little bit older than me and I think I may have scared them with all my excitement, but foster mom promised we would all get along fine and would be playing ball together in no time. I slept like a baby last night and didn’t even mind the crate they have for me. I think this foster home will be a good place for me until my furever family finds me.
5/6/18 Update: Snoop Dogg is a very active and loving puppy. All he wants is to be loved! He follows his foster dad around everywhere he goes. He is looking for the perfect companion. Once you set eyes on this handsome Bulldog, you can’t help but fall in love. We know his forever family is out there and it won’t be long before they find this cutie.
5/14/18 Update: Tomorrow will be two weeks since we started fostering this little cutie. Snoop may be 3 years old, but he still acts like a puppy. He is full of energy and is still learning how to be a dog. He loves being around people and being the center of attention. He especially loves his foster dad – he can’t go anywhere without Snoop looking for him. We have two Bulldogs of our own, but Snoop isn’t too concerned with them. He plays a little rough for them so they mostly just watch him from the couch, as he plays with all their toys. We are working on teaching him how to play nicely with others, but it may take a while since he was an only child for the first three years of his life. His perfect furever family would need to be patient and willing to continue to work with him as he learns how to be an amazing dog.
5/20/18 Update: Hey, everyone… It’s the one and only Snoop Dogg! I just wanted to let everyone know that I am really enjoying my time with my foster family. They have lots of toys for me to play with and a pool for me to lay out by to work on my tan. I have been working with my foster parents on how to play nicer with their two Bulldogs, Chelsea and Biskit. I think I must be getting better because Chelsea will now play tug of war with me and Biskit doesn’t try to bite me everytime I get near him. So, if you’re looking for a smart, handsome, playful and loving Bulldog, then I am your guy!
5/29/18 Update: Snoop Dogg is such a sweet and loving Bulldog. He loves attention and being close to us. He likes playing with toys, laying on us and giving us kisses. He also enjoys following his foster dad around everywhere he goes. We haven’t had him around kids or cats, but he does fine with our two Bulldogs as long as they don’t try to steal his toys. He gets a little upset when that happens, but we are working on teaching him how to share. We also are teaching him not to jump on people or nibble their hands. He is still a puppy at heart, so it will take some time to break those puppy habits.
6/8/18 Update: I have been living with my foster parents for over a month now, which has been GREAT… but I have been wondering when I am going to meet my furever family. I’m a handsome guy with a lot of personality. I’m looking for a family who loves to play and cuddle! If that sounds like you, then drop what you are doing and fill out an application. I could be matched to you!
7/11/18 Update: Snoop Dogg checking in…I bet you all forgot about me, didn’t you? Well I just wanted to remind you all that I am still waiting on my furever family but before I can find that family I have to go visit a behaviorist to work on some of my bad habits. Don’t get me wrong, I am the sweetest bulldog you will ever meet but I also am very protective of my foster parents and can get aggressive if I feel that someone is in my house that shouldn’t be…even if they were invited by my foster parents. My first appointment is this Saturday, so wish me luck!
7/28/18 Update: Snoop Dogg has gone to see Scott Sheaffer (the behaviorist) twice and has another appointment coming up next weekend. Snoop really is a sweet, loving and playful dog, but he tends to get upset when he is behind a child gate or on a leash and new people are around. Scott said it is because he is scared of new people and can’t run away so that’s his defense. Scott showed us some training exercises to do to with Snoop to help him with his fear of new people. Snoop has been responding very well to the training exercises and loves all the treats he gets for being a good boy during training. Scott believes Snoop can overcome his fears in time, so we will continue the training exercises until he finds his furever family. The perfect family for Snoop would be one without small children, small dogs or cats. They would also need to be willing to continue with the training exercises after adopting him.
8/28/18 Update: Hey everyone, its Snoop Dogg…remember me?!? Well I just wanted to check in and let you all know why I have been so quiet lately, I have been spending my time working on all the training exercises that my foster parents and I learned from our visits with the behaviorist. My foster parents tell me that I am doing really well and I am feeling less scared when I meet new people, so I think the training exercises are working. Stay tuned for more updates on my progress.
