Dogs trust Leeds hoping to find a new home for a partially sighted stray

Dogs Trust Leeds is searching for a forever home for a partially blind ten-month old dog who was found wandering the streets.

Young Snoopy, a Standard Dachshund Crossbreed, has been waiting for his special someone for over a month.

Although many people have fallen in love with him hoping he was the dog for them, he is still waiting for his special someone to head home with.

Amanda Sands, Manager at Dogs Trust Leeds, said: “Snoopy is a gorgeous boy and it’s heart breaking that he was found as a stray. He has limited hearing and vision, so to be left alone to fend for himself must have been terrifying.

“He is fantastic, but he needs a home with another dog as he loves nothing more than having fun with his canine companions. He has quite a boisterous, rough and tumble play style at the moment and although understandably people have fallen for him, we haven’t yet found his perfect match when it comes to a canine companion, he can share his home with.”

Despite his hearing and sight problems, the team say Snoopy is a happy, fun-loving boy, who like to live life to the full every day. He is currently living with one of the rehoming centre’s Home from Home foster carers and keeping them entertained, along with their own dog – a Great Dane Cross.

Amanda says: “Snoopy is loving life with his foster carers and playing with their Great Dane Cross. He is a beautiful boy and we have had a lot of interest in him, but he needs a home with owners who would enjoy doing training with him he can get the most out of life as he grows up.

“He can live with older children but would be best not having too many comings and goings. He is a wonderful dog and really deserves to experience the joy of being at the heart of the family.”

If you think Snoopy could be the canine companion you are looking for, you can call the rehoming centre on 0113 532 4335 or visit the centre on York Road, Leeds, LS15 4NL.
