If all goes well Snoop will join the family from the Dog's Trust at Canterbury this weekend.
He is a rescue dog and admittedly he has a few problems that will need ironing out but he will present a challenge and a new companion.
The Dog's Trust originally had him on the website as a terrier-cross, but that was revised to Labrador-cross. He does look like a Patterdale Terrier, although maybe not pure bred.
Snoop might get a new name as well; it's not as though he actually knows he is called Snoop. I have always wanted a Reggie.
Snoop has been fully vetted, he has been neutered and chipped, and is medically clean; wormed and de-flead.
He is due to be collected on Saturday. Claire and I had an interesting walk around Pet World where we bought a few essentials for him; a bed, some toys and the essential poop-bags.....
Although we have both had dogs before, it is rather a long time since. He is a little excitable and to be frank goes ape-shit if a dog gives him the "big I am", so he barks back and growls. Yet in his cell in the homing block he shared with a small Jack Russell bitch that bossed him. She chose the biggest bed and he slept wherever.
Fingers crossed. Maybe he'll get his own blog..... ;)
