Snoop was found roaming the streets on his own in the middle of a hot, dusty day. His paws were sore from the hot road and he was dehydrated and hungry. Efforts to reunite him with an owner were unsuccessful of course, and he was taken back to a shelter where he will remain until a loving home can be found.
Snoop is a beautiful hound mix. There could well be some Bloodhound in his gene pool along with some Jura Hound, a breed more commonly found in Cyprus. He is absolutely a sniffer dog and often has his nose pressed against the ground smelling what's been going on and who's been there. He can be a little nervous with new people, but that is understandable considering he was likely abandoned and has some negative associations with people. However since he has been in the shelter his confidence has improved quickly and he is now very affectionate with those he trusts.
Hounds are very loyal dogs and Snoop will make a devoted companion in the right home. He needs an active home in a rural environment with lots of open spaces to explore. As he is a hound, there should be not expectations that he will ever have perfect recall, as many don't. Snoop is happy to play and socialise with other dogs and is a gentle soul who could be rehomed alongside children.
