Snorkel is a lovely little pooch with a very sensitive soul. This Chi mix has an incredibly smooth, silky coat and a very soft belly. He is sweet as they come but also has a few minor issues. He does not like to share affection or his much treasured “lap time” with other dogs. While he gets along okay with the other dogs in little dog land, he really needs to be the only pet in the household. He would probably be best in an adult household but might be all right with gentle kids over 12 years old. He would be very happy to be included in all daily activities. He gets very anxious and upset if put in a crate or kennel. He’s happy to sleep on his bed on the floor when the other dogs are put in


individual kennels at night. He would most certainly benefit from some dog training. Snorkel desperately wants to get out of the shelter and become an important part of a real family. He’ll be a very loving, loyal companion.
