When you see dogs getting walked around the neighborhood or playing in backyards, it's hard to forget that some of those dogs might have went through their own personal hell to get with their loving families.

So many dogs who end up at shelters are there to no fault of their own. These dogs can be there simply because of being born in a terrible situation or perhaps their owner could not look after them anymore and did not have a viable family member or friend to take care of them.

There's a dog that has received little interest at the Niagara County SPCA and it's time he gets a loving owner who wants to give him a forever home.

His name is Snoopy and he's a 12-year-old Springer Spaniel Mix who is also deaf. He's  caring, loving, sweet dog who deserves a home to live out his last few years.

My fiancee and I adopted a loving, pitbull/beagle mix named Odessa from the SPCA in 2018. She had almost no backstory, other than she had a scar on her head and came from Ohio as an 18-month-old dog.

She's the nicest dog I have ever met in my life and I can't imagine our lives without her now. Dogs like Odessa and Snoopy are at these shelters and they deserve a loving home as much as any dog.

Let's help Snoopy get a forever home and spread the word!
