A dog without a nose and some dental issues has captured the hearts of America.
As USA Today reports, Sniffles is in the care of Poodle and Pooch Rescue based in Florida. According to the organization, Sniffles was a stray from Puerto Rico, where he was attacked by a pack of stray dogs. The poor pooch suffered multiple injuries, including the loss of his nose.
Sniffles was adopted by a family in Florida but he kept escaping and ended up wandering the streets of Orange County, Fla. Poodle and Pooch Rescue treated the senior dog for hookworms and whipworms. They’re now working with the shelter in Puerto Rico who initially cared for the 12-year-old canine to obtain his medical records.
Sniffles is currently with a foster parent and hopes to be adopted by a family who will know how to look after his special needs. It seems he won’t have a problem finding a home since Poodle and Pooch Rescue of Florida has received over 200 messages inquiring about him.
Good luck, Sniffles!
