They say each snowflake is unique and special. It’s certainly the case with Snow, a little dog that was rescued from a high-kill shelter in Bakersfield, Calif. Unbeknownst to her rescuers, Snow was about to give birth to a litter of puppies. And as it turns out, she was a remarkable mother.
All of Snow’s babies have found loving adoptive families, and now it’s mama’s turn to find a forever home. Snow is a 25-pound Cattle Dog/Eskimo blend and about 2 years old. She is described as exceptionally loving, loyal and as a dog that loves giving kisses.
The Rescue Train, the group that saved Snow, has given her some basic obedience training so she knows many commands. The group reports that she is a little fearful and defensive around other dogs, so it would be best if she was the only dog in a home.
i Love Dogs writer Elisa Jordan noticed Snow when she was working on a story about the California Chihuahua overpopulation in rescues. When she learned that Snow was still available for adoption several months later, she wanted to help this sweet pooch find the loving home she deserves.
i Love Dogs is featuring homeless dogs like Snow throughout Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month, which is intended to raise awareness, celebrate adoptable dogs and prompt thousands of would-be dog lovers into adopting their next pooch from a local shelter or rescue organization. During October we’ll be spotlighting dogs needing furever homes, selected by the i Love Dogs team.
So please join the i Love Dogs Rescue Network and help us get the word out about these homeless pooches! Post links to our stories on Twitter and Facebook, email links to your friends and family – whatever it takes!
If you or someone in your social network becomes a hero by adopting one of our featured dogs, not only will you get a best friend for life, but if you mention that you saw the dog on our website, i Love Dogs will send you a brand new pooch starter kit, including toys, vitamin samples and other goodies!
If would like to open your heart up to Snow, contact The Rescue Train. If you provide her with a forever home, let us know and i Love Dogs will set you up with a starter kit.
