Miss Marble stole everyone's hearts as soon as she walked into SNIPSA. With her head hung low and the hesitant pitter patter of her paws walking into the office, everyone had to stop what they were doing and give this girl some lovin'. After a few head scratches and "who's a good girl?'s" Marble's head perked up and her polka dotted tail did the smallest of wags. After roaming around the office for a bit and getting some human attention, Marble became the happiest girl! She never wants to leave your side and is as gentle as can be. She soon made her way to her foster family where she has continued to blossom! Update from foster: She loves to nap and hang out with her humans. A chill companion and eager adventure buddy, she is a great leash walker and is working on basic commands. While she takes a bit to really warm up and be comfortable- love, attention, and praise have proved to be effective for her confidence and skill building. She has already made amazing strides in foster care, going from very timid and nervous to friendly and eager to please- her successes have been cheered on by the many fans she has gained in the neighborhood with her sweet personality and charm. She is friendly with new humans of all ages and other dogs, but would prefer a cat-free home. House training is also going well and she is crate-trained. Marble has a lot of love to give and is so ready to share it with her forever family. Fill out an application for Marble at www.snipsa.org. show less

Meet a SNIPSA fave, Rose! This gorgeous girl has come along while being in SNIPSA's care. In fact, Rose has been with us since February. She arrived nursing 10 puppies at only 50 pounds-severely underweight and suffering from hair loss due to mange. Rose's first day in foster care with her pups, she was so terrified of people that she hoped the five foot fence the first chance she got. It took us a day but we were thankfully able to find her and bring her back. It was then decided that Rose needed a very experienced foster who would be able to work with her daily. Since her puppies were already a solid 15 pounds each and no longer needing to nurse on her, Rose headed on home with SNIPSA's own vet tech. For weeks, Rose hid in a corner and shook at even the smallest of sounds and movements. But her foster continued to work with her, even bringing her to work with her everyday to get Rose acclimated to others.  Fast forward six months and Rose has put on a healthy 20 pounds, has a beautiful soft white coat, plays well with her foster siblings-both dogs and cats, and enjoys her evening walks through the neighborhood! Now, half a year later, Rose is finally ready to find her very own forever home.  Of course, knowing Rose's personality, there will be an adjustment process in her new home so her new potential adopter's need to be aware of that. Rose will need a home with an experienced dog owner when it comes to acclimating to keep her safe. A tall, fully fenced in yard is required for Rose's safety. As much as she loves her evening walks, that will need to wait until she feels fully comfortable with you and knows that you are her person. Rose is the absolute sweetest girl you will meet and she never wants to get in trouble-the girl literally LIVES to make you happy. Once she feels at home, you will not find a more loyal, well-behaved dog than Rose. She is always on her best behavior-fully house trained, leash trained, and has never needed to be crated. She will happily relax on the cool tile floor all day while waiting for your arrival home. Having another furry companion is a plus for Rose as she will come out of her shell faster and loves to play with others but it is not required as humans are her first love. Rose gets along well with kids-she is truly just a cuddle bear with nothing but love to give. She just needs that understanding, loving family. Want to be the best part of Rose's rescue story?

Meet the gorgeous Shelby! Our million-dollar Great Pyrenees rescue – not really but there is a lot of truth to that statement. Shelby... show more

Meet the gorgeous Shelby! Our million-dollar Great Pyrenees rescue – not really but there is a lot of truth to that statement. Shelby landed in SNIPSA’s adoption program in September of 2019. Yes that sounds like a long time ago but there is a reason she has been with us for many months. Shortly after being placed in foster care, Shelby’s foster mom noticed that she walked with an awkward gait, almost bunny hopping at times. She was referred to a specialty hospital and low and behold was diagnosed with bilateral hip dysplasia. Sure she could get by but would eventually develop arthritis in her hips and would be uncomfortable over time. The Cadillac treatment given her young age was a hip replacement. Yes the real deal with a titanium hip that would cost upwards of 6k per hip and she needed two. Wowzie! So SNIPSA set out to help her and provide the most optimal care. Shelby had surgery in December 2019 and would require 8 weeks of confinement with gradual return to exercise. This was a challenge in and of itself keeping a youthful playful sixty pounds large-breed pup confined to a non-slip carpet and a puppy pen. The devoted foster rearranged her house and made it happen. A few months later, Shelby was moving like a champ and ready to take on the world. Shelby completed her second hip replacement in May and will be ready to go mid-July! It is amazing how far these surgeries have come and how gifted her surgeon is at Blue Pearl. A little bit about Shelby’s personality… when Shelby was initially rescued from a rural shelter, she was a little unsure of family life. She was boisterous, didn’t have the best manners, and clearly had never walked on a leash. She was unsure of passing cars and thought the deer were going to take her out. Now, she is a well-behaved lady that has experienced dog life with a real family. Her foster family has taught her to walk on a leash with ease, ride in a car, and even make frequent trips to the family’s lake house. Shelby has befriended the neighbor’s dog and has regular play dates where she will rumble and tumble for hours. She is perfectly housebroken, crate trained, and has mastered obedience such as sit, stay, and shake. Shelby is very affectionate with her foster family and trusts them wholeheartedly. The ideal home for Shelby would be one with older kids given her larger size and moderate energy level. She adores her teenage boys at the foster home. She would be fine as a single dog as long as she gets adequate exercise. If adopted into a household with another dog, it would be ideal that the dog has a similar love and affection for play. She embodies all the typical traits of this lovely breed – stoic, stubborn, affectionate, devoted, protective (remember this breed was used to guard livestock), silly, majestic, and just all around a wonderful dog. Her beautiful double coat will require brushing and will shed so consider that when considering adoption. If you think you have what it takes to provide sweet Shelby with the optimum home, please complete an application. Again, she is our million- dollar dog and we want to ensure she ends up in the best home with a family that will love her for many years to come. An added bonus if the adopter is familiar with this breed but not required as long the potential owner is a savvy and devoted dog lover. Check out her video and see this girl shine. show less
