Why hello there! My name is Snickers. Hey, would you want to go outside? How about a quick romp in the backyard? What’s that? You’re too far away? Ok then, I’ll just tell you a bit about myself instead. I can’t quite remember my parents, but I’m pretty sure Mom was a Shepherd, and I guess my gorgeous brindle coat comes from my Pops! I guess you could say I’m a purebred Philly Shelter Dog! Speaking of shelters, I’m getting a little tired of this place. I’ve been here for more than a year—can you believe that? I think people must overlook me because of my age (I’m 6- years-young), but really, I’m in the prime of my life! I love running around outside and practicing my scent-tracking skills. I really enjoy training sessions, but one thing you won’t have to do is potty-train me. Enemy number one? Squirrels! All-time favorite activity? Getting belly rubs!! My biggest wish in the world? To be adopted and finally be able to share all of this love inside me! Come on, how ‘bout it? Gimme a chance?
What is your favorite board game and why?
My favorite board game is Mouse Trap. Just the name alone excites me—oh, how I love the thrill of a chase! I can’t really play because of my paws and whatnot, but I’ll patiently sit to watch people set up all the little parts…anticipation building and building…and finally, WHAM! The mouse is trapped!
What movie star would you want to portray you in a movie of your life and why?
In a movie about my life, I would want Butch Cassidy era Paul Newman to portray yours truly. He’s handsome without the ego, quirky, and fun-loving. However grave a situation may be, Paul finds humor and always has a smile flirting across his face. I think we have a lot in common—don’t you?
