Dec. 26 (UPI) — A rescue shelter in Central Florida is seeking a home for Sniffles, a dog without a nose, that tends to snort and has crooked teeth but is laid back and loves people.
Poodle and Pooch Rescue in Chuluota took in the 12-year-old dog on Dec. 19.
“He’s just a precious old man. Everyone at the vet’s office has fallen in love with him,” Michelle Wacker, special needs director for the shelter, said to WESH-TV in Orlando.
After helping him overcome hookworms and whipworms, Sniffles was featured in a Christmas Eve profile aired by the TV station.
The story went viral and there has been an outpouring on social media with posters writing he is a “sweet old guy,” “adorable” and one to “die for.”
“The outpouring of support has been overwhelming and heartwarming,” the shelter posted on its website. “Sniffles is going to be a-okay and we ask that you please set your sights on some of our other dogs in need.”
