Snoop the Staffordshire Bull Terrier was abandoned by his original owner, but thankfully it was all caught on camera. The dog was dumped with all of his belongings on the side of a road in England, and it was the saddest sight to see the dog running after the car not knowing why he was being left behind.
The footage made its rounds on social media thanks to the RSPCA, and it led to the sweet dog being adopted! Snoop caught the eye of Laurence Squire, and he had to have the pup.
“One evening I was watching the news when Snoop’s story came on,” Laurence said. “What happened to him was shocking, and it was clear from the footage — in the way that he tried to get back into the car — that he was a loyal dog.”
Snoop is very loyal. Not only that, rescuers from the RSPCA say the dog has separation anxiety. But Snoop’s new dad works from home, so they’ll be together just about all of the time! 🙂
After just a few weeks in his new home, Snoop has settled in nicely. Rachel Butler, an RSPCA spokesperson, made a home visit to check up on the dog and said that Snoop seems very comfortable and relaxed in his new environment.
“The love and attention he is getting now from Laurence is wonderful,” Rachel said. “Snoop is living like a king.”
Snoop finally gets to act as the happy dog he was always meant to be and live his best life. And he doesn’t let Dad stray too far from his side. 😉
“I thought that he seemed like the perfect dog for me and that I could offer him the home he deserved,” Laurence said. “As soon as he came into the house for the first time, he jumped on the sofa and it was as though he decided that was the space for him! He loves to lie on the back of the sofa and if I put the fire on, he will curl up in front of it.”
