GLEN ROSE (CBS11) – A one-year-old shar pei mix credited with saving her family’s life is now in need of saving herself.
Last August, Snickers family’s R-V went up in flames while the family slept. The pup was able to wake them up and they got out safely.
That family has recently moved and they couldn’t take Snickers with them, so they left her at the Glen Rose Animal Shelter.
Animal Control Officer Loretta Adams took Snickers and has formed a close bond with her. She says it’s heartbreaking to hear that her family couldn’t care for her anymore, but what hurts even more she says is that there has been little to no interest in adopting her in the last month.
“She’s a brave girl that saved her family and I don’t understand how nobody wouldn’t want a dog like that,” says Adams. She could potentially save your life”
Now, the race is on to save Snickers life. The shelter says if a home isn’t found for her soon they may have no other choice but to euthanize her.
An emotional officer Adams said, “We’ll be forced to do what we have to do.”
She is hoping that won’t be the case.
If you are interested in adopting Snickers, call the Glen Rose Animal Shelter at (254) 897-3113.
