ORLANDO, Fla (CNN/WKRG) – Workers at a Florida veterinarian’s office hope someone is ready to adopt a stray dog with a unique look. The sweet canine doesn’t have a nose, he has crooked teeth and sometimes snorts.
Wearing a dapper Santa suit, sniffles is a star at this veterinarian’s office in Chuluota, Florida.
The stray dog was taken in by Orange County animal services and so far the dog with crooked teeth, absent a nose. A deformity that causes some snorting hasn’t had people knocking down the door to adopt him. “He’s just a precious old man, everyone at the vet’s office has fallen in love with him,” says Michelle Wacker with Orange County Animal Services.
“He’s a very laid back dog, likes to snort a lot,” says Genesis Diaz, who has been fostering the dog, estimated to be about 12 years old, “this morning I woke up and he was at the edge of my bed, staring at me and he ran over and did a little twirl and started licking my face.”
Anyone who decides to adopt Sniffles, and give him a forever home, you need to know there will some dental work next week so the grin won’t look exactly the same, and it’s also a reminder the rescue always needs cash to pay for vet bills for the special needs critters that go through there.
